Product Description

From homeschooling parent James Stobaugh, British History: Observations and Assessments from Early Cultures to Today provides a comprehensive overview of the English past. British History covers the major events, periods, and people of Britain, including the days of Early England, the Anglo-Saxon Invasions and the Norman Conquest, the Elizabethan Age, the British Empire, The Victorian Age, Modernism, both World Wars, and finally the 1970s to the present.

Thirty-four chapters each include five daily lessons which take approximately 20-30 minutes each. A short reading is followed by critical thinking questions; an exam is given on the last day of the week. Background information, Bloom's Taxonomy-based questions, concepts, biographical sketches, historical debate updates, worldview notes, and history overview components work together to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of historiographical material from a Christian perspective.

Lessons are one-page and easy-to-read with black-and-white photographs integrated throughout; critical thinking assignments are given in the bottom corner. This student book contains only the lesson summaries and assignments; tests and other information is in the sold-separately British History: Teacher's Guide. 272 pages with timeline, softcover. High School.

    This history text is fine as a quick introduction to some of the periods of British history, but it does not contain enough information about the periods to be more than a quick summary. There are only two chapters between Roman Britain and Tudor Britain (approximately a 1000-year period). Some of the sequencing of lessons within chapters is confusing, especially if you are following a chronological timeline in your study of history. For example, the lesson on King Arthur is in the middle of Roman Britain, and the lesson on Frankenstein (published in 1818) is at the end of the chapter about early 20th century Britain. It does encourage one to look beyond the text and do research at least to fill in the gaps.

    This is the first week with this book and already it is teaching my students how to think, not only of history from a Christian perspective, but it really causes them to think outside the box in terms of what it must have been for the ancient Britons, Druids, Scot's, and Celts in the ways they communicated, their beliefs, the things they ate, the environment they lived in and the struggles that they may have faced. They descriptions are brief enough, but really give enough room for more conversation about the subject at hand.

    This book takes a look from ancient British History all the way to WWII, the Cold War, and the end of an Empire.

    The assessments at the end of the lessons and the exams are all very short, but are in essay format which really causes your students to think more. They may even be inspired to do a little more research themselves to learn more.

    The value is great too.

    My Thoughts-

    It is great to be able to find textbooks that are Christian based and help the student understand that God has been important in history. This text was well written in each lesson. It contained a view of British history that I had not been aware of, since I have always studied texts that contained a secular view.

    The daily questions with the lessons are thought provoking and serve the point of the lesson better than true or false questions or multiple choice questions. I find that essay questions often help me learn the material better than other types of questions.

    The only thing I didn't like about this edition was that it mentioned the weekly exams, but it made no mention of where to find them. I was glad to have a teacher's edition that contained them as well as mention of a website where the exams can be located.

    This is an excellent textbook. I would recommend it to all high school students.

    Disclosure- I received British History (Student Edition) by Dr. James P. Stobaugh for free from Master Books. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I'm disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
