A Question for Homeschoolers

This question was posted as a comment on a post of mine on Facebook. Any Ideas?

Quote:So this reminds me. . . Is there are Catholic, American civics/government course to be recommended? I bought a “Christian” based one, but it’s quite Protestant. I really want something Catholic (and up to date) but couldn’t find anything for our homeschool.

My 16 year old daughter is taking a Government class through Homeschool Connections (they are Catholic).  I also purchased a lifetime membership to Tom Woods Liberty Classroom.  My husband and I haven't had a chance to look through it all yet but have liked what we have seen so far.  I can ask what they use at our homeschool co-op.  I haven't had a child go through the class yet.

So, is no one else teaching civics/government in their homeschooling?

Sophia Press has a book to add to a Civics/Govt class to infuse the Catholic Faith Into it.

I haven't found a specifically Catholic program yet.  I am still waiting to hear back from a few friends.

It is interesting that it doesn't seem like many Catholic publishers have made their way into this arena.  Unless I am just not finding it.  My husband works for a Catholic publisher and he was speaking to a teacher at a Catholic school and she told him they really need to come up with a Catholic social studies program.  She said her school would buy it in a minute.  There is a great need.  

My eldest daughter read the William Bennett - America: The Last Best Hope books and really liked them, but I think they are more of a history resource.  We read some of Plutarch's lives here to understand Civics.

I will keep looking Jovan!
