Homeschool Specialists' Spotlights▼▲
The Story of the U.S.A. is a very affordable series that can supplement any literature-based American history program. Books cover from explorers and settlers to the Articles of Confederation, from the Civil War and the Reconstruction Era to the Korean War. These 90-page workbooks helped me round out my literature-based curriculum and reinforced the text from historical novels so I didn't have to rely on a traditional textbook course.
Each lesson consists of short informational passages followed by different types of questions for students to answer. Vocabulary words are listed before the text for better comprehension, and tests are included. An additional section provides discussion and writing prompts from the material. These ideas can be used as conversation starters for family time and to help you gauge how much they are learning and retaining. The 16-page teacher's guides feature answer keys.
We enjoyed these short lessons very much! For grades 4 to 8. Note: Content reflects various scientific and political perspectives. Softcovers, from Educators Publishing. -- Cindy
Brittni Lasater2 Stars Out Of 5DryMay 20, 2013Brittni LasaterQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1I bought this to use for my 4th & 5th grade homeschoolers. The books are designed for independent work. The assignments are simple: read the short text; answer the questions. Easy, right? My kids hated it. We trudged through the first book and switched to a different curriculum altogether. Now, we're using Time Traveler's History and we're all enjoying it!

It not only met our needs, but has proven an engaging and well-planned history review. He thoroughly enjoys the work and is reading with more confidence. I would say it is appropriate for any 3rd - 5th Grader, with a reading level falling between these.
