Dorothy Mills wrote some wonderful history books in the 1920s for use by middle school students, and Memoria Press is proud to bring these books back into publication—with added illustrations! Mills' books include quotes from great classical historians such as Herodotus and Cicero, making them a great preparation for reading these authors in high school. We wrote study guides to go with Mills' books so that you can have a total classical history curriculum in the middle school years. Our study guides contain reading notes, vocabulary, comprehension questions, enrichment activities, maps, and tests.
Student Guides are consumable, providing space for the student to write. Each book is approached in much the same way, although with increasing depth – vocabulary, comprehension and discussion questions, quotations, composition, and miscellaneous literary analysis activities (sequencing, literary terms, dictation, poetry connections, etc.). Although there is consistency from lesson to lesson, there is also an extra activity provided with each lesson, and these are quite varied. Background information on the author and the book is included. Teacher Guides provide full-text answer keys that include talking points for the discussion questions. The Teachers guide also provides reproducible quizzes and a final test.
