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—bringing America 's story to life piece by piece.
Containing hundreds of images and dozens of maps, All American History Volume I is a complete year's curriculum for students in grades 5–8 when combined with the Student Activity Book and Teacher's 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
