If you're using the teacher's guides for middle and high school, your student might benefit from having the corresponding reproducible student study guides. The guides feature lessons for each chapter, which include a variety of activities including vocabulary, map skills, comprehension, critical thinking, primary sources, and writing projects. Reproducible maps, suggestions on how to use graphic organizers, and tips on doing research and extension projects are also included. The student study guides are intended for self-directed study, so you won't find many class or group activities here - perfect for homeschool use! Guides are copyright 2005, so designed for use with the 3rd edition, but useable with the 3rd edition revised books as much of the material is the same.




"Most history books are boring, but your book kept me on the edge of my chair. I couldn't wait to find out what happens next." So said 11-year-old Tommy Cunningham after reading a portion of this 10-volume set. Author Joy Hakim, former journalist and teacher, has a knack for making history more personal and dramatic. A Teaching K-8 review calls her a "master storyteller." The result is that these books are read, and re-read, by youngsters who love stories but don't care for history books. Each story, or chapter, is short (from 3 to 8 pages), includes lots of interesting tidbits in sidebars, and has plenty of pictures (mostly black and white, but some full color). We used this series with Janine and Stephen this past year, who seemed to enjoy, if not relish, the books.

Some concerns exist. The books are not written from a Christian perspective, but the author does recognize a religious influence in the making of our nation. The publisher notes that varying opinions of some controversial subjects are presented; as such, these books are not written from a conservative viewpoint. The first volume makes references to millions of years of prehistory. Book 6 covers the War Between the States primarily from the North's point of view, and Book 10 won't make Rush Limbaugh's list of recommended reading. But in general, this appears to be an appealing presentation of American history for youngsters and adults alike.

This series has been newly revised. The books are now in full-color, with new illustrations and newly commissioned and improved maps in the atlas sections of each book. Most of the changes can be found in Vol. 10, as more current events (up to 2005) have been added. Each book is 160-264 pages, with about 200 illustrations. The revision includes an eleventh book, which serves as a sourcebook for the other ten volumes, and revised teacher guides, which can be used with the previous edition or the new revised texts, as the pagination and illustrations are identical between the editions. We are offering the paperback version in sets or individually. Teacher guides are also available below. ~ Bob

We've used these study guides for the previous books and are satisfied with them. Together with the Teacher's Guide, this becomes an almost completely self-guided history curriculum for our son.
