    As Dave Raymond always points out, Antiquity does have some content that may be better for more mature students. With that said, if you do have a student you consider mature enough for Antiquity AND you are thinking of having your student complete Devotional Biology, I HIGHLY recommend that combo!

    My daughter is a 9th grader (we started school a couple of weeks ago) and is working on that class combo now. The first several lessons of each class reinforce the same general material, which has allowed her to really process the information for both on a deeper level.

    I actually jotted a note down about creating this very post yesterday, but didn’t vocalize my realization to her. Today, while doing Devotional Biology, she paused the video to exclaim how well the two classes coincide. I started laughing and showed her my note (and here I am!).

    We are also reading the N.K. Sandars translation of The Epic of Gilgamesh, as recommended on Dave’s reading list in the Antiquity teacher’s manual (pg. 25). That has also spurred some excellent discussion on Biblical comparisons of ancient literature and stories. We are hoping to be through it in time to coincide with Lessons 3.5-4.5 as I really think that will help reinforce those topics, as well.

    She is also going to be taking an Apologetics class at our co-op so this school year is shaping up to be much more exciting and much less daunting that I feared!
