    The Student Review Pack is considered optional. It includes a Student Review book with review questions on each lesson and essay questions on the literature, a Quiz and Exam Book with unit quizzes and exams, and a separate answer key. Discussions for the projects are not provided but would be helpful in some instances (some general information is provided in a brief parent guide included in the Curriculum Package). Questions, Quizzes, and Exams all tend toward reiterating textual information, while the projects tend toward analytical and evaluative activities.  Please note there are some corrections and updates for the Student Review Pack available on the Notgrass website.

    The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective. The Limited Edition Package includes Lesson Plans; Ancient Literature Supplement; Ancient History Timeline Book and figures; Daniel Inductive Bible Study for Teens; Unwrapping the Pharaohs; Student Bible Atlas; Exploring World History set; What On Earth Am I Here For?; The Odyssey; The Cat of Bubastes; Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology; New Answers Book; The Iliad; Encyclopedia of the Ancient World; The Tabernacle; Eric Liddell; the Epic of Gilgamesh; Taking the Old Testament Challenge and Journey Through the Bible.

    Another Newbery Award (1994) winner from the author of Number the Stars. A remarkable coming-of-age story about a young man who overcomes his society. Set in a "utopian" or "dystopian" (depending on your point of view!) society which is extremely regulated and controlled, Jonas is selected for the very special job of becoming the Receiver of Memory in this story about a community of the future. When Jonas realizes, however, what has been lost and what the price of conformity is, he makes a daring decision that will forever change his life. Our whole family read and discussed this book, finding it an excellent starting point for frank discussion of individuality and responsibility vs. security and homogeneity. Jonas is chosen to be the Receiver of Memory for his community. As he becomes aware of the choices his world has made, he is faced with a difficult decision.

    Based on her own childhood memories of growing up in San Francisco, author Kathryn Forbes introduces us to the delightful character of Mama, the mother of a Norwegian immigrant family growing up in San Francisco during the early 1900s. Despite the many obstacles that are thrown her way, Mama always manages to make the best out of it and conquer the situation. She is an extremely resourceful person who leads her family through such trying financial times as paying for Papa's expensive operation (without ever having to dip into the mystery bank account!). Mama's Bank Account is a heart warming tale about a loving mother who always unconditionally puts her family first. First published in 1943, this book was the inspiration behind the successful play, movie, and television show "I Remember Mama". ~ Enh

    What in the world would draw two well-educated doctors to the poverty and extremely primitive conditions of the remote hill country of North Carolina in 1909? It's an important question. A love of the country? A love of the people? A heartfelt desire to leave some little corner of the world a better place after you've walked the roads and paths? A determination to follow God's call? Yes, to all! Miracle in the Hills is the remarkable story of Doctor Sloop and his wife (also a doctor). Actually, I should say stories because the book is packed with stories – of their education, of their meeting, of beginning their life in the hills, of year after year (over forty) among a people made remarkable and memorable by their love for them. The book is also filled with stories of Mrs. Doctor's fights to improve the lives of those people – early child marriages, moonshiners, and increased educational and economic opportunities were all areas she addressed. Mrs. Sloop was named American Mother of the Year in 1951 – a tribute to her many accomplishments among and for the people she loved. 232 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    This memoir by Sam R. Watkins tells of his experience during the American Civil War. Sam joined the Confederate army when he was twenty-one and fought in battles from Shiloh to Nashville. He wrote the memoir twenty years after the war, and it blends the horror of war with a sense of humor that readers will enjoy. It tells of the Confederate common foot soldiers, its commanders, its Yankee enemies, its victories and defeats, and its ultimate surrender in 1865. Considered a classic Civil War memoir, this story of one man's experience in the war will be hard to put down. Very readable and engrossing. 240 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Years before his famous, "Mr. Gorbachev tear down this wall" speech, former President Ronald Reagan felt called to be God's instrument in this world. From simple beginnings in small town America where he was raised in the church by a faithful mother; to celebrated Republican and former staunch Democrat; from actor turned state governor to the highest office in the United States, Mr. Reagan sought to honor God and his Christian faith. Weaving together historical events, speeches and correspondences, and the memories of friends and family, Dr. Kengor presents a captivating look at the life of a man who firmly believed that all individuals mattered and had worth. Well written and researched, this book demonstrates to teens and parents alike the power of a life submitted to God. Used in Notgrass Exploring Govt. SC. 419 pgs. ~ Deanne
