Users from Other Countries

Users from other countries will need to make modifications to the Wildwood curriculum depending on their countries or origins, and desire to study their own stories more closely.

For a discussion of how Charlotte Mason arranged her history rotation and what countries she studies, please visit The CM History Rotation.

Suggested resources and possible divisions of study are listed below for the following countries. This page is a work in progress as more users provide us with resources for their own countries.
