Product Description:

Chosen by Memoria Press as the text for their high school level American History course, this "concise" history is nevertheless lengthy with its 800+ pages of text. Covering pre-Columbian native American history and cultures briefly, it provides a grand and detailed sweep through American history with chapters tending toward 10-30 year segments. Drawing heavily from, but shortening and revising, a massive history (hence the "concise" in the title) first published in 1930 and revised four times over three decades, this is a second edition published in 1983 and brings American history to the Reagan era. Marked by authoritative scholarship yet written in a narrative style and illustrated with 30 maps and over 250 paintings, cartoons, and photographs, this will be both a challenging and an enjoyable read for the serious student. 859 pgs, pb ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

A political, economic, and cultural survey from the earliest exploration of the New World to the present.

This course might be just what you're looking for - assuming you want a political, economic, and cultural survey course of American history (to 1980). You can count on Memoria Press to use quality, well-written texts and to couple them with significant (but not overwhelming) processing questions. The 800+ page text is basically a reader. The Student Guides provide a course outline; dividing the 800+ page text into a two-year set of weekly reading assignments (33 each year) coupled with chapter worksheets (two pages each) that include a short set of notes (primarily people or place identification sprinkled with interesting historical tidbits) and a set of comprehension questions (short essay). Reviews and tests come every 10-11 weeks (trimesters) and consist of thirty-ish short answer questions plus an essay. The Student Guides are consumable and include the course outline and chapter worksheets. The Teacher Guides include answer keys and tests. Heads-up: the tests, in general, have a fondness for details and the final test for each year require the student to list half of the U.S. Presidents in numerical order. Year 1 covers history from pre-1615 life in North America through the colonial period, founding of our government, Civil War, and Reconstruction years (ending in 1877) including detailed coverage of all major wars in that time period. Year 2 covers the end of Reconstruction to the Reagan years (1980s) including the industrialization of America, the settlement of the West, immigration, and America's role in all the major wars of the period. Student Guides, 40-45 pgs, pb; Teacher Guides, 65-70 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

I bought these for my kids to use for Math My son gets more use out of them than my daughter She�s 9 and no longer needs manipulatives for Math He�s 3 years old He started out using them to practice sorting and sequencing Now he uses them to practice counting and basic addition and subtraction They are very good for addition & subtraction because they are easy for him to see & move Plus we can add different colors (2 yellow plus 3 blue equals 5 total) or adding just one color (if you have 3 red and I have 4 red how many do reds do we have together?) Sometimes we�ll talk about how you can mix colors to make new ones With these being transparent they work great as a visual for that They are also very useful for Bingo games We play bingo games for different subjects With these counters each child can have their own color Since the counters are transparent I can easily look at their game boards & see if they really got them all Also using counters as markers means we can reuse the boards We use these for much more than I thought we would And with 200 in a package we�ve yet to run out of them while working on something These are a great bargain and I would definitely recommend them
