A Blessed Heritage Educational Resources Our History, HIS-Story: Using Literature to Weave the African-American Presence into the Fabric of Early American History Primary Level Volume 1

There's more to American history than the standard highlights, and there's more to African-American history than George Washington Carver and Rosa Parks. Dig deeper into the past and find a richer, broader, and more accurate view of the whole of the American story with the Our History, HIS-Story curriculum.

Designed using the Charlotte Mason approach, this homeschool curriculum will fill a vital gap in elementary-aged students' knowledge of American history, and will provide African-American children with a sense of who they are spiritually and historically. Based around a suggested reading list, this is a flexible curriculum that could easily serve as a launching pad for a timeline or notebooking-based course.

A list of suggested books and other needed resources is provided at the beginning of the guide, along with a suggested reading plan (with page numbers) for a 5-day/week schedule.

Units clearly identify the time period or event being studied, and list:

  • The primary learning topic
  • Ideas for the unit
  • Instructions on what pages to read in the appropriate books
  • Activities with instructions and materials-required lists
  • A shaded box with questions to think and talk about

    Presenting a holistic picture of American history that includes African-Americans, Native Americans, Asian-Americans, and Latino/a people, Volume 1 units cover early interactions between Native Americans and settlers, the early African presence in America, Slavery, emancipation & reconstruction, African-American inventors and inventions, and more.

    37 pages, spiralbound paperback. Primary grades.
