Using primary source documents and twenty-four DVD lessons, the DVDs contain the lessons used with the sold-separately A Noble Experiment Activity Book, with each video session a self-contained module. Five DVDs contain 24 video segments total. Conversational rather than lecture-like, videos cover the major topics in the National Standards for Civics and Government at a high school level.
A Teacher's CD is included, and features: quizzes and tests, printable copies of the course outline, the course syllabus, answer keys for all graded student assignments, a grade book to record individual assignment scores, and optional activities for use by the motivated student or homeschool co-op groups. It also contains the entire transcript of the video lessons, with highlighted key concepts. This format enables the teacher to quickly look up pertinent information without the need to watch the video lessons. Students may also use the transcript to review for assessments. The CD concludes with a course description for use on the student's high school transcript.
Teacher's CD System Requirements: Windows 95 or later and Mac OS 9 or later. Adobe Acrobat reader required.
This is a 1 semester course at 3 lessons per week for 16 weeks.

Elizabeth ConleyNewport News, VAAge: 45-545 Stars Out Of 5Really Good Government CourseMarch 24, 2017Elizabeth ConleyNewport News, VAAge: 45-54Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have used this Government study for both of my own children and in a homeschool cooperative for two years running. It was particularly popular in the cooperative environment. It worked well with students who had significant learning disabilities, as well as students who were academically gifted. The videos were very helpful for students who were auditory learners. The gifted students really appreciated learning directly from source documents. I was pleased with the organization of the course and the ease of presentation. I had to do little or nothing to prepare for lessons - just go over the material and engage students in guided discussions. Grading was incredibly easy. The rigor of the course was a real parent-pleaser.
Jaye2 Stars Out Of 5A Noble ExperimentOctober 2, 2015JayeQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2The content of this material is not the problem - however, it should NOT be recommended for all high schoolers, as the description implies. My 12th grade student did well with it, but the material was not suitable for my 10th grader, who is an A-B student. The nightly reading assignments were unusually long (considering that most of them were "source" documents - written in archaic language) and the tests required long (full page) essay answers to difficult questions as only part of a two+ page test! Would not recommend to a homeschooling friend unless the student is a HS senior; even then, I would consider it an advanced course - more suitable to a college curriculum than high school
