Product Description:

This lecture and primary source-based course spans from Meso-America and early explorers, to the American colonies and the development of the United States through the Civil War. The course then ends with the topic of Western expansion and highlights individuals such as Theodore Roosevelt and Booker T. Washington (for US history after this time period, consider the Modernity course). Projects include an American map project of the student’s choice (from the time period of 1492-1800); a costumed speech project; research paper; a personally crafted project (requiring 30-40 hours); and a year-long portfolio compiled of work from each lesson. Course requires lectures (8 DVD set), Student Reader (336 pgs), and the Teacher’s Guide. It also suggests supplemental readings to reinforce topics.

Category Description for Dave Raymond's History Courses:

Described by the publishers as “ruthlessly Christian,” these courses provide theme-based approaches to history. Either World or American history courses distinguish themselves with the level of rigor, emphasis on primary sources, and Dave Raymond’s digital lectures. Each 26-lesson course builds a similar structure weekly: 60 or more minutes of video lectures; readings in the Student Reader of primary sources (such as essays, speeches, journal writing and more), poetry and literature excerpts; and a short essay exam. Lectures are easily understood, yet challenging, with some video and text enhancements. Typically, the required amount of reading in the second semester doubles that of the first. In addition, each course requires 4 similar projects focused on the time period (a creative representation project; a 3-10-page research paper; a speech with costume; and a 30-40-hour hand-crafted project from suggested options. To represent the year’s work, students will also create a visually and textually engaging portfolio as a culminating project.

Each course requires DVD lectures, the Student Reader (primary sources only), and Teacher Guide. The Teacher Guide and Student Reader are available separately in softcover text. The Teacher Guide provides a scope and sequence (with scoring and completion spaces); brief grading suggestions for all work; brief essay answers for all questions on the weekly exams; and project idea suggestions. The hefty Student Readers will assign the daily readings and lectures; provide questions for the weekly short essay exams; the primary source, poetry, and fiction excerpt selections; and supplemental reading options. The DVD sets provide the lectures. Digital versions of the Student Reader and Teacher’s Guide can be accessed at CompassClassroom.com. Note: the American History DVDs also include the Student Reader and Teacher’s Guide in PDF, mobi and ePub formats as the complete course. Please be aware that brief artistic nudity is found in some of the historical artwork in courses. All items are licensed for single-family use only.
