When my family homeschooled, we sometimes became bogged down with curriculum that presented so much additional work, it turned into drudgery. Too often, we ended up abandoning it altogether. That is the furthest thing from my mind in creating this guide.
As I researched the first HOH book, I was struck by the parallels between gold mining and my search for “treasure” in the form of interesting historical information. I hope HOH readers enjoy that experience as well—by researching and discovering gold nuggets of your own. You learn more and retain information longer when you put your own effort and creativity into a subject.
