    The History of the Renaissance World: From the Rediscovery of Aristotle to the Conquest of Constantinople

    SKU: 2621

    $35.00

    A lively and fascinating narrative history about the birth of the modern world. Beginning in the heady days just after the First Crusade, this volume—the third in the series that began with The History of the Ancient World and The History of the Medieval World—chronicles the contradictions of a world in transition. Popes continue to preach crusade, but the hope of a Christian empire comes to a bloody end on the walls of Constantinople. Aristotelian logic and Greek rationality blossom while the Inquisition gathers strength. Kings and emperors continue to insist on their divine rights, but ordinary people all over the world seize power. New currencies are created, new weapons invented, and world-changing catastrophes alter the landscape: the Little Ice Age and the Great Famine kill millions, the Black Death millions more. In the chaos of these events, our own world begins to take shape. Follow the story back; check out the History of the Medieval World and the History of the Ancient World! Hardbound. 816 pages.

    Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind: Comprehensive Handbook of Rules by Susan Wise-Bauer

    SKU: 7949

    $17.95

    Designed to accompany the Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind program, this Handbook of Rules assembles into one handy reference work all of the principles that govern the English language—from basic definitions (“A noun is the name of a person, place, thing, or idea”) through advanced sentence structure and analysis. Each rule is illustrated with examples drawn from great literature, along with classic and contemporary works of science, history, and mathematics. Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind is an innovative program that combines the three essential elements of language learning: understanding and memorizing rules (prescriptive teaching), repeated exposure to examples of how those rules are used (descriptive instruction), and practice using those rules in exercises and in writing (practical experience). Each year, parents and teachers go through the dialogue, rules, and examples in the Core Instructor Text (sold separately, Item #7946); students follow along in the Student Workbook (sold separately, Item #7947). This repetition solidifies the concepts, definitions, and examples in the student’s mind. Hardcover. 102 pages. From Well-Trained Mind Press. Learn More

There are 50 new puzzles in this book. There are crime names and Christmas mazes, country mazes and city mazes, mazes for all skills and mazes for all seasons of the year. There are even mazes that are games you can play over and over again. Each maze has a story to go with it and often a set of hints and complications. The illustrations are all printed in large size (perfect for framing or creating in craft or needlework for even more amazing fun). Some are classical mazes: others are solid mazes, ripple mazes, short-path labyrinths, avoidance labyrinths, mazes in which you have to visit all rooms and mazes that test your skill in countless other ways. Also included is an introduction to the history of mazes and a special section on maze solving. If somehow you don't get one of the mazes or feel you have to test your own conclusions, a solutions section in the back gives full information. Walter Shepherd has made another significant contribution to cerebral recreations in this volume. You will find hours of pleasure and hours of delightful torture when you show them to friends.
