Yesterday I wrote about how it is better to study subjects together rather than as fragmented, specialized pursuits. With that floating on the outskirts of your cerebral cortex, let me ask you a question:
Why doesn't Sonlight offer a History program by itself?
Why is History combined with other subjects in a Core program?
The motivation behind this decision is more pragmatic than philosophical. If you have an incredible historical narrative that happens to be a great reader for a student, is that a History title or a Reader? This ambiguity actually strengthens the point: Subjects should not--indeed, can not--be segregated into specialized units of study.
The pieces fit together.
We offer the whole puzzle, not just the edge pieces.
So, yes, it is not instantly clear what is included in a Core program. We can't label them as a single subject. That's because they aren't a single subject.
And that's how it should be.
