How Does Veritas Press History Work PDF

Veritas Press' classical Christian curriculum teaches students history through a multi-sensory approach that uses colorful flashcards, engaging timeline memory songs, and effective teacher resources.

The recommended History schedule is:
Grade K: Bede's History of ME
Grade 1: Bede's History of US
Grade 2: Old Testament & Ancient Egypt
Grade 3: New Testament, Greece & Rome
Grade 4: Middle Ages, Renaissance & Reformation
Grade 5: Explorers to 1815
Grade 6: 1815-Present

Each level (2 & up) includes history cards that feature a full-color photograph with a historic period/item on the front, and a short summary, date, and list of recommended resources on the back. Cards are color-coded so that the multiple series can be easily gathered together as needed; card numbers for the particular series are included along with card numbers that combine all Bible and history cards.

Cards are designed to be used with the Memory Song CDs. These usually feature a single track that covers major events, dates, places, and people chronologically. One track with vocals and one instrumental track are provided for each song.

There are four teacher's guide options: the homeschool (print) teacher's guide or the homeschool enhanced CD-ROM, and the school (print) teacher's guide or the school enhanced CD-ROM. The difference between the homeschool and school print guides is that the homeschool guide is a softcover and the school version is loose-leaf pages in a three-ring-binder; in addition, the copyright allows homeschool teachers to make copies for their homeschool classes, and the school version allows teachers to make copies for their classrooms. The content is identical.

The enhanced teacher CD-ROMs include the memory song (also found on the memory CD) in addition to an electronic version of the Teacher's Manual (which includes a worksheet, at least one project, and a test for each card in that year's series) and a "how to" video which provides help and guidance. Enhanced materials are in adobe acrobat format and can be accessed on the CD-ROM of most Macintosh and Windows computers. For each course, it’s recommended that students read engaging works (often historical fiction) that complement the events that they’re learning about; in addition, Veritas Press recommends a number of “Priority 1” materials—a collection of resources they feel is the most useful for each history level. Here are the lists of recommended books:

This 1815 to the Present School Teacher's Manual is part of the 1815 to the Present history series from Veritas Press, which is comprised of this teacher's manual (OR the enhanced school teacher's manual on CD, Homeschool Manual, or Homeschool Enhanced CD options), plus the 1815 to the Present Card set, and 1815 to the Present Memory CD, all of which are sold-separately; a list of recommended literature for this course is below.

This teacher's manual includes student projects and worksheets that align with the cards and memory CD (not included). Projects include background information and accounts to read along with fun projects. Worksheets provide reinforcement for remembering dates, names, and places. Tests provide an opportunity for assessment, and feature short-answer questions. Answers to all assignments are included in the back (line-listed format), including the writing exercises for cards. The appendix features a variety of reproducible blackline masters, history-based sentences in which students identify the different parts of speech, report forms, games, and more.

This comprehensive manual is designed for a 36-week school year, with one week at the end of each quarter designated for review and testing; parents are encouraged to adapt to their own students, as this manual contains more information and projects than could be completed by one student in a year.

Projects are marked in the answer key to indicate if they're suited for younger or older (4th grade and up) students. If using for 2nd grade and below, some work, especially in the beginning, may need to be done orally. While this program can be used with multiple ages, the recommended schedule is:

  • Grade K: Bede's History of ME
  • Grade 1: Bede's History of US
  • Grade 2: Old Testament & Ancient Egypt
  • Grade 3: New Testament, Greece & Rome
  • Grade 4: Middle Ages, Renaissance & Reformation
