This course is comprised of two primary texts and a volume of primary documents ("American Voices"). Each textbook unit is filled with conservational chapters and many full-color photographs of archival images, artifacts, and locations. In addition to reading the narrative about events, issues, and people, students will read original documents, speeches, poems, and stories in American Voices. They will also read classic literature (in books obtained independently) that help bring to life the time period under review. Units begin with a summary and list of lessons, memory work, books used, and a project. Each lesson ends with readings from the book American Voices, additional literature assignments, and instructions for questions and quizzes (the optional review questions, quizzes and tests themselves are in the sold-separately Exploring America Student Review Pack).
This updated 2014 edition features an expanded last chapter to take readers through the present, as well as a new layout that features full-color photographs, illustrations, and a hardcover binding. The literature used has also been altered.
One hundred and fifty lessons are divided into thirty units of five lessons each; students should expect to spend 50-60 minutes on each subject each day (total of 2.5-3 hours per day). This course, when all assignments are completed, provides one credit of American history, one credit of English, and one credit of Bible.

- Exploring America Volume 1: Columbus through Reconstruction. 422 pages, hardcover non-consumable.

My son loved the literature as well as American documents and Bible intertwined throughout curriculum. As a parent I appreciated the teacher's guide/answer key as I could quickly grade his homework and quizzes/tests. Would highly recommend this for history/Bible/Literature/Writing for a high school student.
Donna Seymour5 Stars Out Of 5Exploring AmericaMarch 20, 2015Donna SeymourQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 11th grade daughter absolutely loved this curriculum. History was her least favorite subject and her public school teacher was so bad, he was the reason we started homeschooling. She told me the other day that this has become her favorite subject this year. It is written in such a friendly style it is much more interesting and relatable. We will definitely be investing in the World History set for our younger daughter.
