    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

      This teacher-directed Bible book teaches Gospel truths from Genesis chronologically and alphabetically. Using the tent format book, the teacher presents the lesson from one side while the student views the cartoon-illustrated, poem-format story on the opposite side. Each story highlights an alphabet letter and a tangible or Biblically-themed word such as “B is for Bible” or “U is for Utterly”. The low-prep teacher’s portion includes the story and a scripted-format lesson using activities and questions that review and expand upon key ideas and additional vocabulary using the same letter.

    Using her well-known talent for making complex topics clear and understandable, Dr. Beechick has provided us with another valuable and exciting resource for teaching. This book is riveting! In a sharp departure from her fabulous "how to teach" books, Dr. Beechick introduces us to an almost forgotten world in a fantastic work of historical fiction - combining the actual, historical truths revealed in scripture with various other sources to create a fluid, easy-to-read "walk" through early history. We journey from creation to the departure of Abram from Ur, through the eyes of the Old Testament authors. Hopefully, Dr. Beechick will continue in this vein in future books. 176 pgs.

    This beautiful hardback book is the perfect tool to walk your children through the history of Adam and Eve and how their sin turned a perfect world into the death and decay we see today. Full-page illustrations help bring to life details of the Garden of Eden, the fall into sin, and the consequences that have followed. One of the best things is that a focus is placed on our personal sin natures that came from the first Adam, and how we can find redemption by trusting in the perfect sacrifice made by the last Adam, Jesus Christ. So many answers to questions your children have can be reinforced through this book, including why we die, why we wear clothes, what our purpose is, and how our lives can be restored to walk with God.

    Abigail Adams is often described as "the wife of one president and the mother of another" – what about her personality was so presidential? Through an analysis of many letters Abigail sent over the course of her life, we uncover her private thoughts about both everyday life and momentous events in American history. In this unique biography, we are able to see Abigail Adams as an individual of her own time, rather than through a modern lens, and we are able to understand her personality as a product of the time and place in which she lived. Readers will feel as if they really know Abigail Adams – the woman who supported the second president and raised the sixth. A chronology of the Adams' lives and revolutionary events is also included. 221 pages, paperback – Rachel

    In reference to telling a successful joke or story you often hear, "It's all in the presentation," meaning that people will be interested or enjoy these things if the person telling them is an interesting, good storyteller. That saying captures the Artner's view of teaching and learning American history - children will enjoy history if it is presented to them in an interesting way. The basis of this guide is that learning American history is both more effectively and enjoyably done through reading children's history books rather than a history text. Although simple, this is a somewhat unique idea in many classrooms today. Many parents occasionally supplement with historical readers, either nonfiction or fiction, but few discard the history text and rely on these valuable resources completely. However, as the Artner family sees it, this is by far the best way to engage children in the history of our country. Through reading well-written, factual stories of the times and people of our nation as opposed to a dull textbook, children will truly enjoy history and have a better knowledge of our country's past. To this end, they have created this helpful guide to share their extensive knowledge of great children's history books. Divided into eight historical periods, units cover exploration and settlement (c. 1000-1775), the Colonial period (1607-1775), the War of Independence and the new government (1775-1789), national development and westward expansion (1790-1877), Civil War and reconstruction (1861-1877), Industrial Revolution and the rise of American world leadership (1878-1918), boom, depression and World War II (1919-1945), and the American century (1946-present). For each unit, parents are provided with a basic facts sheet to briefly introduce the era. This sheet includes important chronological dates and events of that time; notable people, places, and topics for reading; inventions and innovations of the time; important documents; and famous phrases. The Artner's also strongly suggest using Everything You Need to Know About American History Homework in conjunction with this text, citing page numbers of that book to read in introduction to each era and referencing history activity ideas from the same. The second teacher page for each unit holds history topics which should be covered according to E.D. Hirsch's books, What Your __ Grader Needs to Know, as well as ideas for optional fun activities relating to the topics read about. The last portion of each unit contains the reading list. Here you will find the titles and authors of what the Artner's believe to be the best children's history books. These books are divided by in print or easily found, out of print, autobiographies, advanced reading, historical fiction, and poetry, prose and song. The teacher's guide section at the front of the book offers information on selecting good history books and using this guide and provides a step-by-step schedule for teaching each unit. Helpful tips for finding any out-of-print treasures are shared at the back of the book. America has a naturally interesting story - don't squelch it with a boring retelling! ~ Steph

    I'm always shocked when someone tells me they dislike history and find it boring. I've always loved history because it's the magnificent story of our past – triumphs, tragedies, endurance, courage, heartbreak, justice, injustice, adventure, freedom, change – how could that be boring? This treasury of stories shows readers that American history isn't just about dates and facts, it's about the amazing events that have brought our country to where it is today. Starting with the establishment of the first city in 1564 and ending with the election of 2000, it includes 100 stories that show America's character and its history. All kinds of stories are included; well-known and obscure, funny and sad, admirable and disgraceful. The stories are easy-to-read narratives of true events or descriptions remarkable accomplishments. Each story is about 3-4 pages long and pages feature full-color illustrations. Stories are presented chronologically but there are notes following some of them that identify other stories that link together as well as suggestions for further reading. Help students see that history is full of captivating, motivating, heartbreaking, and interesting stories with this great treasury. By Jennifer Armstrong, 358 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel

    Homeschool teachers will go to great lengths to help their students overcome difficulties. Take Beverly Adams-Gordon, for example. An engineer and Montessori teacher, she left her teaching job to homeschool in an effort to solve her youngest daughter's severe spelling problems. Finding no suitable material, she thoroughly researched the subject and developed her own spelling curriculum.

    So what is different?

    • * It's all in one book. One purchase for all years for all kids.
    • * A chapter on research details the most effective methods of spelling instruction.
    • * Complete instructions for introducing, implementing and evaluating the program. Directions are given for adapting to different learning styles and ages.
    • * The program takes only 15 minutes/day.
    • * Extensive Word Lists are based on research done after 1979 of most frequently used and misspelled words. Word lists used in most other programs are based on lists created in 1915 or 1947. Two lists are provided, with 5,000 and 12,000 words, respectively.
    • * General and specific placement tests start each student right where he needs to be.
    • * Program is based on phonics and spelling rules, not phonics alone.
    • * Review is built into the program which uses a "spiral" approach (repeated and spaced review) similar to the approach Saxon takes in it's problem sets.
    • * Directions for over 100 games and activities are included which concentrate on specific skills and make spelling more interesting. Most are individual or partner games, but some can be played by up to 6 players.

    The attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese planes in 1941 is what drew America into going to war. Shortly after this attack, something that would be unheard of today began to happen. West Coast Japanese Americans were being rounded up and relocated to prison camps. This book focuses on Yuki, a young Japanese girl, and her experiences during this trying time. Her story (based on the author's own experiences) tells of the consequences of prejudice and the capacities of the human spirit to thrive even in the face of such tough obstacles. This book was first published in 1971 and is now a much-loved, widely read classic. Pb, 149 pgs. – elise
