    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

It's filled with tips, outlines, suggestions, and rules for writing techniques that will get students to write proper stories and enjoy it as well. The guide begins with a helpful introduction that tells teachers how to use the book and then contains eight lessons on ideas, story building, objectives, obstacles, outcome, characters, plots, and scenes.

    You have chosen to play a vital role in your children’s lives. Be encouraged! This hardcover gift book is an update of the Daily Devotional Calendar from Charlene Notgrass. The entries (one for each day of the month) are based on Titus 2:3-5, the godly characteristics for older and younger women. We are flawed, she asserts, but that truth can either discourage us or we can be encouraged that problems have solutions and God lovingly responds to us. Charlene takes an older woman encouraging a younger woman approach throughout, using the first few pages to explain her heart. Then, each very brief devotional speaks directly to the homeschool mom’s heart, exhorting her to teach and live the eternal, with the day’s single Scripture verse written at the bottom. What will absolutely strike you first are the vibrantly detailed, high definition, full-color nature photos, which draw the connection that we are to grow day by day, tending and nurturing our soul and the souls of our children just as nature does. Make this a beautiful gift with long-lasting results. 8” x 8.25”, 45 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    Providing an introduction to a variety of essential research tools, this guide gently walks students through the dictionary, encyclopedia, atlas, concordance and the telephone book. Each lesson offers great flexibility for the homeschooling family, as the lessons are not written in daily format. Each section begins with background information on the studied reference book and includes instructions on how to use it. The following student pages provide a variety of activities specific to the reference studied. Here is an example of one portion of the Encyclopedia lesson: The student reads the instruction on using an encyclopedia. They are asked to look up "Samuel Adams" and read about his life and answer the following questions: What year was he born? Who was his famous cousin? What college did he graduate from in 1740? Internet research tools are discussed, although the author emphasizes the importance of using research books. Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible is recommended and Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary is suggested (other dictionaries will work). Pb. 26 pgs. Non-reproducible. ~ Deanne

    Courage, conflict, hope and catastrophe, adventures, missteps and new beginnings – these are the makings of America's history. Young readers can experience them all as they spend "one day" with a fictional character (based on real history) from 1750 to 1899. Accurate historical information is presented between stories using photographs, illustrations and textual information of real places like Valley Forge and Bull Run, and real people like Helen Keller and Jane Adams. Historical fiction can be used to engage a student who may not love to study history, especially if they can relate their own lives to those of the kids in these stories. Think of the conversations you could get out of your kids as they read about these different periods in U.S. history. These are also great short stories to use as models for them to write their own historical fiction pieces. ~ Sara
