This program is ideal for students in Grades 8-12; it should take one year to complete.
TRISMS is a unique unit-study curriculum for grades 6-12 designed to help students think independently. Integrating multiple subjects around history, this program covers art history, art appreciation, music history, architecture, research composition, literature, creative writing, geography, history, economics, philosophy, civics, science history, critical thinking, and more. Research-based and student-directed, TRISMS students create their own coursebooks and learn to take responsibility for their own education. Students will gain the tools to research, build a love of learning, dig deeply into subjects they're interested in, and develop excellent communication skills.
TRISMS can be used with multiple ages and levels through adapting the reading lists and extending the schedule. It is based upon a classical division of abilities with resources aligned with Logic/Dialectic Stage (Grades 6-8) and the Rhetoric Stage (High School). For the High School courses, while it's recommended that students start with Discovering the Ancient World, and each volume chronologically builds on the previous time-frame, assignments do not increase in difficulty so parents may choose to start at whichever time period they prefer.
This is a 'neutral' course that does not present material from the perspective of any particular worldview.
PLEASE NOTE: This program requires the Institute for Excellence in Writing's Teaching Writing Structure and Style and separate literature books, which are not included with this curriculum.
