Connecting with History has been used successfully by many homeschool co-ops and independent schools. We encourage these groups to use the program and we are pleased with the excellent feedback that we've received. However, when a large group buys one copy of the program and passes it around to multiple parents and teachers we incur a loss of income for the authors who have worked so hard to provide this program to you. RC History has implemented licensing requirements that benefit your group and protect our hard work and legal copyrights.
Step 1: Register your co-op or school
Registered groups may have a group page on the RC History website for publicity as well as for the convenience of your group members. We can include information about your group, including a link to your group's website, as well as customized book lists for your group to make gathering supplies for your group convenient.
Registered groups may sign up for a Group Affiliate Membership which enables your members & others to return a percentage of their purchases made through RC History back to your co-op. This is an excellent source of fundraising for your group!
Step 2: Each classroom teacher and family will need to purchase a Connecting with History Syllabus.
The Connecting with History Teacher Materials (Teacher's Guide, Syllabus, and Lesson Plans) are copyrighted for individual family use only. Therefore, each family needs to own their own copy. Teachers will use their copy for classroom activities.
Step 3: Decide whether you would like to use our Co-op Lesson Plans and Teacher's Guides.
We have Co-op Family Lesson Plans and Classroom Teacher's Guide specifically for co-op groups and hybrid schools. The Classroom Teacher's Guides provide detailed instructions for teaching history, literature, and composition for classes that meet one day per week. Homework assignments for families to complete between co-op sessions are included in the Classroom Teacher's Guides and in the Co-op Family Lesson Plans.
