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.
