Good course for American history. Using this for my 8th grader with the tests that are an additional purchase. All working very well. Each lesson she completes in about 4 days and every 4 lessons she takes a test over the last 4 lessons.

I would recommend!
I love All American History. I purchased the teacher edition so that I could have my kids read other books about the people or situations we were learning about. I only wish the author would do a World History.

This is a great involved highly academic yet creative and interesting approach to American history particularly for older children We are most definitely passionate about history and have a great interest in going beyond scratching the surface an opportunity this curriculum provides This curriculum is laid out well and can simply be opened and used As a very busy homeschooling parent I want to spend more of my time teaching my children than preparing to teach them I appreciate this resource that covers explorers colonies states presidents and so much more in such interesting detail This truly looks like a typical textbook and at first look we were concerned that it would be the average textbook approach that does not fit our family It is not your typical textbook but reads like an interesting account of American history providing new insights details and perspectives The student workbook is wonderful also We purchased one student reader for our three children and they each got to complete certain parts They really looked forward to their turn to write in the book especially the maps they have to complete and the cut and paste activities While I would place this as an upper middle to high school level text our younger children learn and enjoy from this as well The reading is not captivating for the very young though It is much more captivating for children who love history and are simply not satisfied with a quick sweep of historical persons and events Our children learned and retained more information than I thought they would utilizing this program We found it to be well worth the price especially if you have multiple children using it If your family is not history oriented this may not be for you However if your family is intrigued by American history and you enjoy great reading mapping and creativity in learning this may be the blessing for you that it has been for us We are really looking forward to All American History Part II A note on the teacher's manual: If you are going to read and do the activities along with your child you will not need the teacher's manual If your child is working independently you will really appreciate having the teacher's manual

My 11th grader needs a history curriculum. He's not thrilled with dry textbooks and lots of reading. This seems to be engaging and attainable.

It captured the the periods of history I wanted to focus my children on.

Being used at our homeschool co-op.

It seemed very similar to Mystery of History which my daughter enjoyed and learned from. The multiple ways to process the information seems like it will be a good fit for her learning style.

Is this considered religious curricula?
A shopper on Feb 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My son completed the whole curriculum in the past and it's not religious content; but written by a Christian author. History is taught as it should be, without a religious over-tone. My son's charter homeschool program refused to pay for it though. It's an affordable price so I purchased it myself and I am very happy I did. It's an excellent curriculum. I highly recommend.
What reading level is this?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The curriculum is accurately noted as 5th -8th grade.However, there are book lists for extra reading in the curriculum that allow you to tailor this curriculum to meet your needs, having book recommendations from upper elementary through high school. If you know how to navigate your library system, it is easy to find books for even early elementary students written on the topics covered in this curriculum, if you happen to have younger students in your family that want to work along side older students. Very functional curriculum!
