Designed specifically for Junior High students, this daily lesson plan will instruct your student in a thoughtful and enjoyable manner. Packed with award winning literature, this course will offer, along with early American historical events, a picture of the world—religious, cultural, social, political, scientific and economic—covering a span of time from the 1400's to 1865. From discovery and exploration, Renaissance and Reformation, colonialism and revolution, republics and democracies, the emergence of a new world with new ways of thinking will be discovered through some of the finest children's literature available. This is a one-year course with teacher notes included. It also can be done as a read-aloud for those parents who don't want to miss out!
