Churchill Books
Correlated with Arnold-Forster
and An Island Story for Combo Years 7/8

This breaks down Churchill's Birth of Britain and The New World with Arnold-Forster's History of England (and An Island Story as a bonus!) into 4 readings per week for Year 7/8 of AO's Years 7-8-9 in Two Years. The correlation isn't exact because history books aren't written to exactly correlate with each other (imagine that!), but it's chronologically close. Arnold-Forster is only used in AO's Years 7 and 8; it's considered too colonial in later chapters that correspond with AO's Year 9, which make up the final two terms of Year 7-8-9 in Two Years. That means this schedule covers four of the six terms that make up the two-years of 7-8-9 in Two Years.

AO's Year 9 are squeezed into Terms 2 and 3 of this year, and Arnold-Forster is not used. So this schedule ends here.




As this historical era gets more into Britain's dominions, the book's tone is decidedly colonialist and, therefore, AO does not suggest Arnold-Forster for the Year 9 part of this Combo plan. But if you were curious to see a weekly breakdown, this is what it might look like. Chapters don't line up neatly with Churchill, so no attempt has been made to list them together.
