By Celeste W. Rakes
Having taught American history a number of times, each time writing (and re-writing) her own materials, Celeste has shared her love of history with many students in her homeschool classes. Designed to be engaging and written in a comfortable style, All American History reads like a good book ó bringing Americaís story to life piece by piece. Containing hundreds of images and dozens of maps, All-American History Volume I is a complete yearís curriculum for students in grades 6 Ė High School when combined with the Student Activity Book and Teacherís Guide.
It is also adaptable for younger and older students. The first volume covers Exploration through 1840. Each week includes a chapter from the Reader, maps, forms, and review questions in the Activity Book, and plenty of hands-on and further research ideas in the Teacher Guide. (As well as great teaching tips, ANSWERS to everything, and a great book list!) The teacher book also provides additional hands-on and further research ideas for the younger students you may use this with.
There are 32 weekly lessons, and each lesson contains three sections examining:
The atmosphere in which the event occurred
The event itself
The impact this event had on the future of America
