Too many Americans are geographically illiterate, but you don't have to be. This one source book provides you with all you need to know to teach this vital subject from kindergarten through high school. Part lesson plan, part unit study, part inspiration and more.
From selecting appropriate reference materials, to constructing a timeline, to establishing a student notebook, this book will guide you through literature (with Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates), science, history, and includes a complete multi-level geography course for middle and high school students, with Geography Matters reproducible outline maps. To help keep history in perspective use any of the over 300 historical timeline figures, and notebook timeline.
This is a recommended resource for use with the Trail Guide to World Geography and is referenced by page number throughout the course.
"In my opinion this approach to geography will be far more interesting than a standard text on the subject."
—Cathy Duffy, Home Educators Curriculum Manual
"I very rarely ever send 'fan' mail, but I just wanted to let you know that I think this program is absolutely outstanding!... (It) makes it easy enough for my 9 year old and challenging enough for my 13 year old. I thought about this book long and hard before purchasing, wish it hadn't taken me so long! Knowing then what I know now, I would have bought it at first glance!"
"I want to join the hundreds of very pleased customers of the Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide. I am using it for the first time and am so pleased with the versatility of the program. You have done a wonderful job for moms that teach multi-level grades at home. Thank you!"
"The best resource for geography and how to incorporate it into other subjects I have EVER used, much less seen!"
"After eye balling The Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide for about 2 years and always saying, 'it's too expensive,' I finally bought it last year and am kicking myself that I did not buy it sooner. I find it is quite inexpensive for the great resource that it is. If one were to buy or check out the literary and research resources needed, The Ultimate Guide would be all they needed for all 13 years of homeschooling. I really love it and suggest it at the occasional talks I give to homeschoolers in this area."
"What a fun way to learn geography! The Ultimate got us excited about preparing for the Geography Bee and showed me how to get far more out of my other subject materials by utilizing the student notebook approach. I love the Hans Brinker Study and the Conquering the Continents sections!
In this non-consumable "Ultimate Guide" are all the tools you need to give your students the competitive edge to be successful in today's global market. Chock-full of lesson plans and fun activities, using this book will overcome geographical illiteracy.
