Group Description

Welcome! All American History is a two-year history course written from a Christian perspective. Brought to you by Bright Ideas Press, publishers of the popular Mystery of History series, this new series is aimed at families teaching grades 5 - 9.

Volume 1 = Exploration through Pre-Civil War
Volume 2 = Civil War through 2001

The curriculum is composed of three important pieces:
*Student Reader
*Student Activity Book
*Teacher Guide

The hardback reader is composed of weekly lessons divided into three sections:
*Atmosphere (of the event)
*Event
*Impact

The text is meant to be used in conjunction with the activity book - which contains the pages that are to be filled in WHILE the student is reading or the teacher is discussing each lesson. This activity book also includes a review for each week, pictures to cut out and place in the appropriate slot, and maps to be filled in.

The Teacher Guide contains a vast amount of teacher-friendly material. The teacher is provided with:
**How to use this book
**Hands-On Activities
**Family Activities
**Adaptations for use with Young Students
**Research Questions for older students
**Synposis of answers for research questions
**Timeline dates
**Mapping instructions
**Answer keys
**Book Lists for each unit

This Yahoo group is dedicated to moms, dads, students and Christian School teachers using this curriculum. We welcome your questions, ideas, suggestions and enthusiasm!

Your group moderators, Laurie, Debbie, and group owner, Maggie Hogan of Bright Ideas Press will be here to offer support, advice, and fellowship.
