EngtchrAtlantaAge: 45-54Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Not a stand-alone textAugust 23, 2014EngtchrAtlantaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1This 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.
Dawn LynesGrant, MIAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Gets your kids to really thinkAugust 30, 2013Dawn LynesGrant, MIAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
WriterRani5 Stars Out Of 5A Great History TextbookAugust 15, 2012WriterRaniQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 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.
