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.

DCaye5 Stars Out Of 5Exploring AmericaAugust 3, 2015DCayeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Notgrass History curricula are favorites with my family. History is explained, not with dates only, but with an understanding of what and who and why. The writing assignments cause kids to really think about what they have learned and how they feel about it. The Bible sections show the impact of Bible in History, and what the Bible has to say about our history. The book of primary documents is an excellent resource for greater understanding of the people and the times studied. Overall a great choice!
JMiller5 Stars Out Of 5Understanding American HistoryJuly 28, 2015JMillerQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I appreciated Exploring America because it caused my daughter to not only learn history but also to think through her position on difficult topics in order to complete the writing assignments. The curriculum includes primary source texts that bring the thoughts of the time periods to life--what were the writers of our famous documents thinking and experiencing. I highly recommend this curriculum.

My son loved the literature as well as American documents and Bible intertwined throughout curriculum.
