Timberdoodle's review
United States History
I recently set out to review USA history programs and was appalled by what I found. Apparently a straightforward, interesting, and complete one-year program is hard to find. Or so it seemed until we found United States History.

A Well Designed Textbook
The plain name belies the engaging approach. Full color illustrations throughout complement the fascinating text. Potentially unfamiliar words are defined, short biographies are liberally sprinkled throughout, and thought provoking questions abound.

Excellent, Engaging Writing
Best of all though is the text itself. Controversial issues are set up well and the logic behind the action is explained so that the student is left understanding why, for instance, the atom bomb was dropped without being obligated to agree or disagree with that approach. In this way a thoughtful, inquisitive approach to history is encouraged that will serve your student well throughout his lifetime.

Who is United States History for?
Written at a 4th-5th grade level, this is one of the best one-year programs we've seen for teaching USA history. Unlike All American History, United States History is not written from a distinctively Christian perspective. I don't see anything included that would be offensive to most Conservative Christians, but it is something to be aware of. If you have a student who wants a fast-paced, interesting approach to USA history, we think this is the perfect fit.

The Components
Each United States History Homeschool Kit revolves around the colorful, hard-cover student textbook that is the backbone of the curriculum. A 144-page Student Workbook is also included with fill-in-the-blank activities, multiple-choice questions, crossword puzzles, and many other types of workbook pages. The final component is a massive Teacher's Edition. It shows all the student pages along with answers, additional activity ideas, questions to discuss etc.

Please note that access to the Teacher's Resource Library is not included with this Homeschool Bundle. Pearson has done that to keep your costs at a minimum. A comprehensive Teacher's Manual is included so this isn't likely to prove a problem, but we thought you'd want to know that there are extra tests, etc. mentioned which are not included in the kit. Thankfully those components aren't needed in a homeschool environment!
