Theresa C ShellAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful and Engaging!March 11, 2019Theresa C ShellAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a fantastic curriculum: beautiful pictures, engaging story-based history, short lessons. We used it last school year, and both my kids remember this portion of history when we come across names or events in other studies and read-alouds. We went through many chapters slower than the recommended pace, to incorporate outside read-alouds, movies/YouTube, crafts, and even a couple related field trips, while others we completed as recommended.
The Student book alone makes an excellent read-aloud, but the Teacher's Guide is definitely worth it with making this a complete curriculum.
TheVetetoeFamily5 Stars Out Of 5Exactly what we were looking for!March 4, 2019TheVetetoeFamilyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We've only been using America's Story for a short time but so far our family is really enjoying it! The narration is easy to understand but is packed full of information delivered in a way our 3rd grader loves. She isn't overwhelmed or memorizing facts but instead is genuinely picking up on the history being taught. The illustrations of the old maps are definitely a favorite aspect!
Christina R5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful History SeriesFebruary 28, 2019Christina RQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a wonderful beginning in a series of books on America's History. The touch of Charlotte Mason and the open and go has created a wonderful way to study and learn the history of America. It has a gentle yet fun and engaging approach. Colorful and interesting - it keeps the attention of both teacher and student. History should always be this fun!
Nikki5 Stars Out Of 5Outstanding!February 28, 2019NikkiQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Simply put, this book is stunning!
The author writes in a easy to understand, conversational style that is right on par with the recommended ages for this curriculum. There are plenty of narration breaks to ensure understanding of the material. I appreciate the author taking the time to touch upon the darker parts of our history - but in an age-appropriate and sensitive manner. The stories are short and less in depth, which is perfect for an overview of American history at the elementary level. The book is full of stunning images, maps, and artwork - which I absolutely love.
As you would expect with all of Master Book's publications, the text is firmly rooted in the Word of God and promotes a Biblical worldview.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this course for elementary students. With some supplemental reading and projects, it could also easily be adapted for middle school students.
