Humanities II Antiquity 2018-19
PLEASE NOTE: Our bookstore pages are as complete as we can make them at this time. As teachers plan classes for the year, additions or deletions may be made. Booklists will be finalized by the beginning of August, and registered families will be notified when that occurs. Most of these books are worth having on your shelves, so we do not recommend that you turn down any great deals if you see them! But if you want to be absolutely sure, you may prefer to wait until our August deadline before you purchase.
Required Books and Materials
KING’S MEADOW AMERICAN CULTURE CURRICULUM Part of a 4-year moral philosophy curriculum covering the major epochs of history.

Registered families may order this at a discounted price through our licensing agreement with King’s Meadow. Please email the Providence Prep Administrator to order your copy.
The hardbacks published by Dawn Chorus, which are listed on these same Amazon links,
are nicer volumes of these Dorothy Mills books, worthy of keeping on your shelves.
BOOK OF CENTURIES – A blank timeline book for students to record the major events and people they encounter in their study of history, literature, science, art, and music. We will place a discounted group order from Cottage Press later in the summer. (Your student should use their copy from previous years, if they have one, as this is a cumulative endeavor.)
