Tyler Hogan has prepared an excellent video overview of The Mystery of History curriculum series.
Here are a few key points from the video.
Classical, Chronological, and Christian
MOH is classical in the sense that it provides assignments for each of the three stages of education. The classical terms have simplified names in MOH.
- grammar stage = younger students
- logic stage = middle students
- rhetoric stage = older students
MOH examines events and people all over the world in chronological order instead of according to themes or cultures. MOH is also unapologetically Christian, weaving biblical and church history together with secular history.
What is in The Mystery of History?
MOH includes 36 weeks of lessons, activities, reviews, quizzes, and answer keys. Everything you need to teach the program (except for an atlas) is included. No other resources are necessary. Your lesson texts, student workbook, and teacher’s guide are all inside. MOH even includes timeline and geography assignments.

Who can use The Mystery of History?
MOH was originally written for fourth through eighth graders; however, the teacher’s guide gives simple recommendations for adapting the text for kindergarten through high school.
