      Drive thru History has been a favorite of our son for a few years now, so I ordered Drive thru History America as his history resource for sixth grade. I realize it was recommended for 6-12th grade levels, but our son is an avid reader, and I thought this would work. The DVD is great, of course, highly entertaining, but it does repeat some segments we already watched in other Drive Thru History videos (the first 4 about Pennsylvania, etc.) In all fairness, there is some new material too. I was very disappointed in the book that accompanied the video. There was some quality information it it, but it included some debate topics that I think are not age appropriate for sixth grade. It also seemed to lack a cohesive organization strategy, and I found it difficult to break the chapters into different days of assignments. I have just given up on trying to use the textbook that came in this set. It is just too difficult to use. However, we LOVE the Drive Thru History videos, and will probably order the series about the ancient times, recognizing that I will need to supplement them with some other written history resource.

      Ordered for my library homeschool section. I like that the book comes with the CD. Would like it if they had some tests or quizzes with it too.

    Q: Is there a good American history book to use alongside this series?

    A: Besides the included workbook, there is not a specific history book to accompany this. Some suggested supplemental reading would be WW78304 "George Washington's World", WW96845 "A Child's Story of America" or WW79453 "Lives of The Signers".

    Q: Is this a full year curriculum? My kids are having a hard time following the abeka is this a full year curriculum or a supplemental. I like abeka but would like to find a dvd that could be used in conjunction with abeka?

    A: This curriculum contains 9 lessons. It would count as ¼ to ½ year depending on the number of supplemental activities you choose to complete.

    Q: Stotts or Barton? The LOGO is the same as Drive Thru History with Dave Stotts.Is Dave Stotts in this DVD or David Barton?

    A: The curriculum is written by David Barton. Dave Stotts is featured in the short DVD clips, which are taken from the Drive Thru History series.

    Q: Use with other Drive Thru Movies? Can you use this along with the other American series of Drive Thru or are they almost the same?

    A: This can be used with other "Drive Thru" DVDs. The DVD in it contains nine 10-minute segments focusing on historical persons that demonstrate particular character traits.

    Q: What is the ISBN # on the Student Textbook? I want to make sure I buy the right one (if there is more than one) for her American History class. Thank you in advance!

    A: The ISBN on the Student Textbook is 9781414313412.
