I want to integrate history and English and use real books. I know there are several prewritten programs out there, but I have not liked anything I have seen yet. One, I don't like having 5 books going at once, which seems to be common on many of the programs. I also like to draw from a variety of sources, from movies to museums, etc. Anyone just pull together their own resources and study the subject at hand without following a pre-written guide from someone else?
