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.

A very unique and engaging way to learn and view American History. Multi-faceted information from art, literature, historical documents. A great way for students to work with the material they are learning by doing projects and portfolios for a real hands on learning and cementing it to long term memory!

HIstory with a slant
We have enjoyed the structure of this curriculum, and Dave Raymond is certainly an excellent communicator. However, we had to discontinue using it once we got to the lessons on the Civil War era, as there was a definite pro-South slant to his teaching. He strongly emphasizes states' rights, justifies secession, and gives only a very tepid condemnation of slavery. I just wasn't comfortable with these lessons, so we found a good Civil War documentary to watch instead. I haven't decided if we'll return to Dave Raymond for the rest of the year or not. I'm not sure I trust the curriculum anymore.

Dave Raymond's American History Curriculum IS ENGAGING!
We enjoy the life lectures that help with note-taking skills. They are informative, Christian World View, and less than 15 minutes.
Many interesting stories and beautiful art and poetry to help get a full engagement in learning. Stresses much hands-on learning instead of just memorizing.
