After much trial and error, we have created a timeline journal that works well for our high school students. This tool for living education has dated pages for each millennium from 4000 to 1000BC, for each century from 1000BC-1500AD, for each half-century from 1501-1700, and for each decade from 1700-2050AD. The pages have dates at the top and a dotted background throughout in order to help students keep their entries tidy. While this timeline is useful for any student, the Classical Conversations Challenge program recommends keeping a timeline journal during the four years of high school in order to gain a coheasive understanding of history.
You can see samples of the printed timeline below.
Here are some examples of different people’s work in filling them out:
Printed timelines are available from www.lulu.com. They come spiral bound with a clear cover and black back and paper thick enough that bleed through is minimal.
