Product Feature: The Revised and Expanded History of the Horse Study Guide

As many of our customers know, we've been working on revising and expanding many of our study guides. With each passing year, it seems that there are more and more resources available to enrich each study and we are having a great time exploring new websites, literature, movies, and more. The most recent revision has been our well-loved History of the Horse. A favorite since its publication in 1997, Hilary B. Severson's guide has opened the wonderful world of horse history to thousands of young readers. We are excited to announce this new full-color expansion. Here is a rundown of some of the changes:

1. The lesson plan now features 92 easy-to-use lessons. This is to allow for ease of scheduling and students can easily finish the study in one school year by completing three lessons each week. This course also makes a delightful summer course!

2. Expanded background and biographical information on the featured authors. All our expanded guides now feature notes and background information in order to facilitate learning. The guides still encourage students to seek out information by way of assigned research projects, but we also know that sometimes having the information at your fingertips is a lot more useful and helpful!

3. This guide now features even more helpful diagrams and graphics.

4. The expansion also includes more comprehension questions, more research topics, more hands-on activities, more suggested readings, and links to interactive and informative websites, as well as suggested videos! 

History of the Horse by Hilary B. Severson, daughter of Russ and Rea Berg, and newly expanded by Joshua Berg is available in both hardcopy and instant download form. 

We would love to hear what you think of these changes and are also happy to answer any questions. Also, please let us know if you have suggestions for changes on any of our study guides.

Happy reading!
