For the first time since 2009, Beautiful Feet Books has introduced a brand-new study! The Modern American & World History study covers the American Civil War up to modern day for 5-8th grade students. It is the perfect follow-up to those who have already completed their Early American intermediate course. This new study uses the second-half of A Child's First Book of American History by Earl Schenck Miers as well as a host of new and classic literature.
Characters studied over this year-long course include the Wright brothers, Teddy Roosevelt, Gladys Aylward, George Washington Carver, Frederick Douglass, Sergeant York, Jackie Robinson and many others. Your student will come to appreciate and understand the most tempestuous period in history through award-winning literature.
This full-color study guide includes notes on each book, recommended supplemental literature, resources, activities, comprehension questions, vocabulary, and web links. This guide will take you and your intermediate grade student from the year 1860 to modern day while covering the Civil War, Reconstruction, the turn of the century, WWI, WWII, Civil Rights, Korean War, Vietnam War, and contemporary America. Organized into easily followed lessons, students (and parents!) will learn the modern history of our nation along with corresponding Christian principles, poetry, geography, character studies, and much more!
