Category Description for Story of the U.S.A.:

Similar in structure and content to the Story of Western Civilization series, this reading comprehension series focuses on the story of the United States, from early Native American times to today. There are a few differences in format, however. First, the lesson vocabulary words featured before the reading include the definition, whereas the vocabulary section in Story of Western Civilization requires the student to look up the word in a dictionary and then write a definition. As far as the post-selection questions, the content is pretty similar - short answer, true/false, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, discussion and vocabulary questions are featured. Two tests are included in each book - one halfway through the book, and another one at the end. One major difference is that there is one answer key for each book in the series, and each answer key contains answers for both lesson questions and test questions. Additional discussion or research activities for each lesson are also included in answer key as well. - Jess

It is concise, though you can supplement with library living history books. It teaches reading comprehension and vocabulary, while hitting on the important parts of history. I have used this series, with living history reading books, for all four of my college-bound children in middle school.

Part of our Sonlight Curriculm that they no longer stock because I have an older version of the Core 3 plan.

This is the second book in this series I have been using books #1 and #2 this year with my kids--3rd and 5th grade The grade range states 4-8 but I have found these to be wonderful with my 3rd grader who is easily overwhelmed with "large" chunks of reading material The chapters in these books average only about 2 pages New vocabulary is introduced at the beginning of the chapter and then highlighted in the chapter itself Following the reading there are essay true and false multiple choice vocab and class discussion questions(about 5 questions of each type) These are the perfect size chapters for my 3rd grader to practice his reading comprehension--finding answers for things in the material he has read; and getting practice with all the various types of question formats he will run into in his schooling days My 5th grader has always been an advanced reader so he does breeze through these chapters but the information and reading comprehension are still good for himThe book is considered consumable but doesn't allow photocopying I just have the boys write their answers in a separate notebook (another good skill they need to learn)and so am pleased with the money savings in only having to purchase one copy
