Using the Charlotte Mason approach, this homeschool curriculum will fill a vital gap in middle-school-aged students' knowledge of American history. Using volumes 5-10 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 2" units focus on the 19th- 21st centuries, and covers the Civil War, reconstruction, the Harlem Renaissance, Jim Crow, segregation, Civil Rights, and more.
59 pages, spiralbound paperback. Middle School grades.
