      There are few in this world who have accomplished so much that they need an alphabet to list them all. Ben Franklin is an exception. This is a lovely “read together” or on your own for an older student to learn some of the many contributions and characteristics of a famous founding father. For example, did you know that Ben tried vegetarianism as a young man or that he invented a musical instrument out of spinning glass bowls? Each letter of the alphabet relates different facts and info with special features, insets and full-color drawings. As a quotation enthusiast, I loved searching the book just to find the Franklin quotations that adorn each page, such as, “Make haste slowly,” or, “Well done is better than well said.” Engaging book filled with lots of details. 9 ¾” x 10”, 32 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Benjamin Franklin was an amazing man who made great offerings in the areas of science, writing, politics, and general existence. This book tells all about his life, including details about many of his great inventions. Franklin did so much in his life that it would be hard to get everything into one book, but this book does give a great overview of his life, his main accomplishments, and that time period in general. Starting with his childhood in Boston, the book works chronologically through his life, sharing information in an easy-to-read, interesting manner. Interspersed throughout the biographical text are 30 activities/experiments to complete that are related to facts in Franklin's life. You can make your own swim paddles after you read about how his childhood love of swimming led him to invent them at the age of ten; make your own potato battery after learning about his experiments with electricity and lightning rods; make your own mailbag after learning about the improvements he made in the postal service; make your own parchment paper after learning about his involvement with the Declaration of Independence; and so much more. Numbered, detailed directions make the projects easy to complete and the materials needed are household items and common craft supplies. Black-and-white drawings illustrate the book and bolded words within the text are defined in "Words to Know" sections. This is a great, hands-on supplement that blends history and science to teach about the life and contributions of one of America's greatest inventors and founders. 120 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    Wisely, Franklin D. Roosevelt once stated, "No government is perfect. One of the chief virtues of a democracy, however, is that its defects are always visible and under democratic processes can be pointed out and corrected." Yet, each president had a level of faith-in God, in mankind, and in our great nation. Quoting American presidents from George Washington through Barrack Obama, the authors explore the role faith has played in the American presidency throughout our flawed history. Quotations and related Scriptures are shared along with Making It Real self-examination questions. Additional questions and hot topic questions found in the back of the book make this a creative way to study history and current events as a family or youth group. Various scripture versions are used. 116 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

     Concluding with the profound observation, America is a great nation and people are needed to practice, protect and promote economic liberty, this course introduces students to the history of economic thought, and modern economic issues currently facing America, before family economics, entrepreneurship and power of education are explored.

      One semester in length, the full course kit contains 3 Texts, 3 Activity books and the Teacher’s Resource Kit (TRK), along with the TRK digital download.  Designed for independent study, each text, called a chapter, cover fifteen topics.  Each text contains the lesson reading, bold vocabulary words with definitions in a vocabulary “box” on the page, life principle quotes and video clips via a QRC codes. Corresponding activity books provide questions for each topic. Questions are fill in the blank and matching, with lines to write the life principle.

    The Teacher’s Resource Kit includes black line masters for section quizzes (9), chapter tests (3), quiz and chapter test answer keys, activity answer keys, and the table of contents. Black line masters are reproducible for classroom use.

      Chapter 1 introduces students to economics as the engine by which capitalism, free enterprise, private property and the relationship between employees, employers, and entrepreneurs create jobs. Additionally, this chapter also explores government regulation, supply and demand, and economic factors such as taking risks, investments and profit and loss. The evolution of economic precepts and principles, from ancient Greece, Rome, Europe and the Dark Ages are explored. Historical persons that shaped modern economic theory are presented including Moses, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, William Penn, Winston Churchill, Margret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan. This chapter also delves into the Industrial Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the Cold War, and their impact on economics. Worth mentioning, the impact of an economy based on Biblical principles is discussed for its historical value and includes a look at Marxism and Darwinian theory. Chapter 2 further explores the history of the Judeo-Christian and European influences that were foundational to the capitalism in the United States. The authors compare the historical teachings of Catholic and Ana-Baptist beliefs and provide a brief overview of the Protestant reformation and the influences of the Church on economic philosophy. This is done neutrally with no scripture verse support or proselytizing noted.  An in-depth look is given to the economic significance of the US Constitution, Mayflower Compact and the Bill of Rights. Students will briefly examine the impact of the industry, railroads, progressive education, unions, the New Deal, welfare, immigration, private organizations and “trickle-down economics.” Chapter 3 reviews contemporary economic issues including banking, creditors, credit cards, checking accounts, debt, impulse buying, mortgages, dividends, stock market, collateral, loans, bankruptcies, insurance, real estate, gross and net income, inflation, IRAs and 401Ks, tax audits, and much more.  Students are also introduced to the pros and cons of starting and operating a small business, along with post high school options: college, trade school, and military.

      A captivating look at the foundations of economic philosophy that will appeal to students-especially those without a desire to study the math and deeper theories of economic thought. All texts and activity books are softcover. ~Deanne
