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

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.
