Literary Lessons from Lord of the Rings (even my non-reader loved it), Teaching Textbooks (much more pleasant than most math textbooks), Mystery of History, Teaching Company Lectures (in particular, the Middle Ages series), Netflix (for documentaries, biographies, and historical movies), and we are about to start Geography with a book called Don't Know Much about Geography (which talks about biblical events AND old earth stuff - sparking a fair amount of conversation for us) and Physics (non-lab, one sememster) with a book called Thinking Physics is Gedanken Physics...hope this sparks something creative for you! --Connie
