Bring the study of history to life through the doorway of a literature classic.
Men of Iron Curriculum Bundle

To help teach history, we have created a special Curriculum Bundle suitable for 6th graders through high school, using a classical, Biblically-based method, the Principle Approach. Apply the Principle Approach to teach the history of civil and religious liberty while you present an inspiring, character-building literary classic.

“It was a noble day…where the air seemed sweeter and fresher…and the sun bright and as yellow as gold.” Men of Iron brings history alive in a tale of high adventure. The story teaches Christian character as it relates to knighthood and chivalry but also the importance of "careful training," friendship, loyalty, justice, and how to determine right from wrong. The story hangs on the question of how one decides guilt or innocence.

This story teaches Christian character and imbues a love of literature, while using the historical setting to kindle understanding of the roots of civil liberty first documented in the Magna Charta and the Wycliffe Bible in English.

The Men of Iron Teacher Guide prepares you to teach this literature classic using the notebook approach. The Guide suggests research, background reading, and instruction in teaching through the notebook approach.

Also included in the bundle is the Noah Plan Literature Curriculum Guide that will prepare you to teach literature from first principles to practical application, incorporating the ideas of literature as “the handmaid of history”, the elements of literature, extensive writing, reading and discussion.

The History Curriculum Bundle includes:
