Modern history—history, that is, after the fall of Constantinople in 1453—can sometimes seem like a confusing jumble of unrelated events. As a result, many curricula needlessly avoid this exciting period of history. Memoria Press’ Famous Men of Modern Times will bring the events of the last 500 years to life. These stories provide great insight into the foundations of the modern world. Balanced and well written, with many interesting details and beautiful color illustrations, the Famous Men of Modern Times is, perhaps, Haaran and Poland’s best work yet. It covers men from all over the world—from Lorenzo the Magnificent to Count von Bismarck.
We now offer a year-long workbook course that comprehensively covers the Famous Men of Modern Times. Each of the thirty workbook lessons includes famous quotes, a drill of key people and places, ten vocabulary words, 5-10 comprehension questions per lesson, and an activities section that includes mapwork, timelines, discussion questions, and art projects. The program also comes with plenty of supplemental exercises, including maps, a “Who Said That?” worksheet, and drawing pages.
