Well-Planned Lessons make planning your academic schedule simple!
A New Nation, Grade 8 features easy-to-use lesson plans that cover approximately 1-1.5 hours per day over a 36-week, 180-day period. Tailored to your students' learning level, lesson plans from 5th through 8th Grade are in the "Beginning to Understand" category, when connections start clicking into place and a new depth of understanding develops
The "A New Nation" series is the third part of a four-year history cycle that helps ensure students master the foundational lessons of history at age-appropriate levels. Aligned lessons within the series also mean that it's easy to teach multiple grades simultaneously! Lesson plans feature a year's worth of instruction across Bible, history, science, math, language arts, and art & music. Three levels of instruction are provided for each week---Essentials, Enriched, and Comprehensive---which gives teachers the flexibility to choose how much time they'd like to spend on each subject.
A New Nation focuses primarily on the exploration of the Americas, the founding of the United States, and the westward expansion that laid the groundwork for the nation we know today. In this particular history cycle, the topical focus is narrowed to cover our heritage as Americans (1000 AD-1869AD). Even so, timelines and living books prepare students to compare this narrow focus to the broader worldview explored in the Culture & Ideas cycle.
Note that this is a lesson plan only. It presents page numbers and chapters that need to be completed each day in order to finish the book list in a year. It does not include any instructions on presenting the material, and all books / curricula must be purchased separately. Lesson plans are presented on a grid with Monday-Friday at the top of the page; the column down the side of the page contains the subjects. Daily subject blocks feature the name of the book in bold with page numbers and basic instructions (e.g. "read unit introduction 2" or "discuss and complete task 7 on page 58"). Each assignment is color-coded to the Essentials, Enriched, or Comprehensive track.
This guide also includes a blank hour-by-hour student schedule to customize, semester progress reports, and semester attendance reports.
It's recommended that parents purchase a large three-ring binder and one divider for each subject in order to store worksheets, drawings, copywork, and other written work as a record of learning.
