Thomas Jefferson Education, This Week in History -- Schoolhouse Crew Review

We love history and it is always fun to catch snippets of what happened on this day in history.  A Thomas Jefferson Education has made finding out about what happened each day in history convenient and easy with their new program:  This Week In History.  Thanks to the Schoolhouse Review Crew and TJEd for an opportunity to try out several weeks!  It has been an enjoyable experience!


What is A Thomas Jefferson Education?
"Discovered and articulated by Oliver and Rachel DeMille, Thomas Jefferson Education, or “TJEd,” (pronounced “tee-jay-ED”) is an educational philosophy and a methodology by which great individuals throughout history have been educated."  Using the Seven Keys of Great Teaching and The Four Pillars of Learning, TJEd offers a methodology of teaching your children using the great classics and mentors.  It is known as the way great figures in history were taught.  You can learn more about the foundations of TJEd by clicking HERE.

About This Week In History (TWIH):
Delivered right to your email in-box weekly or accessed via the TWIH Blog, a subscription to This Week In History presents daily resources including math, science, language skills, geography, current events, the arts and much more.  Each subject is tied to an event that happened on that day in history.   Jam-packed with so many fun and interesting activities it is like having a dozen unit studies each week!  Do a little, do a lot, it doesn't matter - they are all fun and educational for ALL AGES!


What did we think of This Week In History?
--No matter which week I received, every week there was always something that directly coincided with what we were studying in homeschool that week.
--Super comprehensive!  For example in one week alone there were:  picture studies, links for further study, discussion questions, research activities, craft ideas, project recommendations, poems, writing prompts and narration suggestions and coloring pages!
--Having the links available was great, I really recommend checking them out in advance because some of them had some confusing navigation issues to deal with before getting to the actual information.


You can view a sample week if you'd like to get a better feel for the program.

This Week in History retails for $9.99 per month.
