A Blessed Heritage Educational Resources This Far by Faith: A Literature-Based History featuring African-American Presence & Contribution, Int. Level V1

History requires not only an understanding of the diverse cultures that make up the foundation of the past, but also an empathetic perception and understanding of events as they were experienced. This Far by Faith provides such an approach through flexible lessons that focus on the presence and contributions of African-Americans and others who are often glossed over or left out of the history books entirely.

Using the Charlotte Mason approach, this homeschool curriculum will fill a vital gap in middle-school-aged students' knowledge of American history. Using the first five volumes of Joy Hakim's A History of US as a spine, and complimented by an extensive suggested reading list that includes both readers and read-aloud books, this curriculum provides a Christian emphasis on history that highlights God's providence without minimizing the atrocities committed in the past.

A list of suggested books is provided, along with weekly unit-by-unit suggested reading plans (with page/chapter numbers) for a 5-day/week schedule.

Units are organized by time frame and feature integrated directions that note what students should be reading, questions to ask students, teacher notes, activities, bullet-pointed lists of important points, and the weekly schedule.

Presenting a holistic picture of American history, "This Far by Faith: Volume 1" units cover the Native Americans' interactions with others, early colonization, the establishment of the United States, slavery, resistance, and more.

48 pages, spiralbound paperback. Middle School grades.
