You can have students read textbook after textbook, but often they don't remember the information unless they get some hands-on review or are made to regurgitate it somehow. These CDs provide great supplemental material for a wide variety of history topics, from ancient times to modern American history. They use an open approach that makes them perfect for use with pretty much any history curriculum. Basically, the CDs are full of PDF files of worksheets that you can print out for students to complete (literally hundreds of sheets). The worksheets usually follow the same basic format and are grouped together by subject matter so students can create their own "books" about specific topics. For example, they can group together biographies about famous artists from history, biographies about famous musicians from history, biographies about all the presidents, famous people/places/events from ancient Greece, etc. The typical worksheet for younger students (through junior high) includes a short topic sentence or paragraph describing the theme of the individual sheet (like noble life during the Middle Ages, Spanish explorers, Thomas Jefferson, women's suffrage, Pearl Harbor, Vincent Can Gogh, etc.), and then about half the page is left blank for students to illustrate the topic, and then the remainder of the sheet is lined so students can write in additional information about the topic or describe their illustrations. Worksheets for older students (upper junior high and above) are a bit more in-depth, though they cover the same topics. They include an area for key points, a much smaller drawing area, a mini-biography area, quotation about the topic, mini-timeline to place the subject within the realm of other historical events, an area to record the additional resources explored in the study of this topic, and an essay question related to the topic. Some of the worksheets vary in format (such as map activities). With dozens (sometimes hundreds) of sheets for each era/topic covered, the CDs are definitely a good value. The History Scribe CD includes all of the worksheets for both grade levels, while the History Scholar CD includes only the worksheets for older students. These PDF CDs provide great open-ended supplemental templates that you and your students will enjoy. System requirements: Adobe Reader (a free download) and a printer.
