After studying the American Civil War this past year, we are really excited to see this film when it is released here on January 17th. What do you think of the trailer?
As we Australianise AO, it is difficult to decide what stays and what goes. So far, I think we've reached a pretty good balance between Australian and World history. I am certainly pleased that I have more knowledge about when went on in the past, both within and without of Australia's boundaries, and learning about Abe Lincoln and his attempts to abolish slavery is an important episode in the history of all mankind, not just in the history of the United States.
How do you teach history in your homeschool? How you decide how much time to spend on the history of your own country compared to the history of other parts of God's great world? Do you think you have the balance right? Will you be seeing Lincoln at the movies? Will you take your kids? Do tell. Which threads of history are the most important to you?
