Created with the independent-homeschooled learner in mind, A Noble Experiment can be completed by the student through the easy-to-follow course syllabus and DVD instruction. Exploring the "noble experiment" of our government-patterned after the Roman republic with elements of Greek democracy and Englightenment philosophy-learn how its ideals have been exported everywhere. This high school government course explores the creation, implementation, and evolution of our government.
Using primary source documents and twenty-four DVD lessons, the DVDs contain the lessons used with the sold-separately A Noble Experiment Activity Book, with each video session a self-contained module. Five DVDs contain 24 video segments total. Conversational rather than lecture-like, videos cover the major topics in the National Standards for Civics and Government at a high school level.
A Teacher's CD is included, and features: quizzes and tests, printable copies of the course outline, the course syllabus, answer keys for all graded student assignments, a grade book to record individual assignment scores, and optional activities for use by the motivated student or homeschool co-op groups. It also contains the entire transcript of the video lessons, with highlighted key concepts. This format enables the teacher to quickly look up pertinent information without the need to watch the video lessons. Students may also use the transcript to review for assessments. The CD concludes with a course description for use on the student's high school transcript.
