In this full color, hardcover, approximately 690-page text, students follow American history through the formation, growth, and struggle of the nation.

Sidebars and extra nuggets of fascinating information, along with "perspective boxes," sharpen students' understanding and view of history. Several study and discussion questions conclude each section in the textbook.

Category Description for Grade 8 CLE Social Studies:

Changing Frontiers text covers First Americans to post 9/11 and the turn of the century through President Obama. Textbook is hardcover, with approximately 690 pgs. Students are challenged to sharpen their understanding of American history through text, nuggets of fascinating information, and "perspective boxes." Worksheets are required if following the Textbook Method.

Quality academics, Christian worldview (Anabaptist) and ease of use come together in this cost-effective curriculum. A primary focus in the CLE Social Studies is to prepare students for a life of service to God through the Church, Community and Great Commission. Gods sovereignty and love for His people are evident along with the two-kingdom concept of separation between Church and State. In the CLE scope and sequence, first and second grade Social Studies are considered supplemental for students who need additional work with language arts skills (comprehension and writing). Beginning in grade 3 through grade 8, a textbook provides the heart of instruction with two options available for teaching the course: textbook with LightUnits method providing independent student learning or textbook alone method with discussion questions and assessment of learning through student interaction). Please note, the textbook is required for both options.

If utilizing the Light Units with the Textbooks option, the units function as study guides with daily textbook readings and matching Light Unit activities. The publisher recommends the Textbook and LightUnit method in individualized settings.  High School courses consist of ten self-study LightUnits. There is no textbook at these levels.

Available components vary by level; see specific grades for more information.

LightUnit booklets are consumable, paperback and include daily written activities, quizzes and tests. Each light unit booklet is expected to take 3-4 weeks to complete. Textbooks, where available, are hardcover and non-consumable. Teacher Guides include lesson plans, answers, teaching suggestions, and more. Depending on the grade level, there are two Teacher Guide options available: the textbook method only Teacher Guide and the Teacher Guide for those using the Textbook and LightUnit method. Answer Keys (AK) (where available) provide answers only. Separate Test Packets (non-reproducible) are available for those following the Textbook method. ~ Deanne

Excellent Social Studies Curriculum Books
This is an excellent, thorough and complete coverage of the 8th grade Social Studies curriculum. It is comprehensive and well organized. The text is beautifully illustrated and the corresponding workbooks, chapter tests and answer keys are well coordinated to reinforce the text. I highly recommend this program.
