*The title House of Sixty Fathers has just fallen out of print. We had been securing used copies but that has become unsustainable as prices have exceeded list price. We are hoping the publisher or another publish bring this Newbery Honor book back into print. Until then we are not able to fulfill this title or back order it. The price of this pack has been deducted accordingly.
*This pack now includes our brand-new Modern Timeline. We will be updating the study guide to add instructions on when to use the Timeline but for those using the study now review the Timeline before reading to see which images will be pasted on the physical Timeline and when. We hope this will enhance your study!
This Modern American and World History study will cover the American Civil War up to modern day for 5-8th grade students. It will be a perfect follow-up to those who have already completed our Early American Intermediate
course. This new study will utilize the second-half of A Child's First Book of American History
by Earl Schenck Miers as well as a host of new and classic literature. Characters studied over this year-long course include the Wright brothers, Teddy Roosevelt, Gladys Aylward, George Washington Carver, Frederick Douglass, Sergeant York, Jackie Robinson and a host of others. Your student will come to appreciate and understandthe most tempestuous period in history through award-winning literature. The full-color study guide includes recommended supplemental literature, resources, activities, comprehension questions, and web links. This guide will take you and your intermediate grade student from the year 1860 to modern day while covering the Civil War, Reconstruction, the turn of the century, WWI, WWII, Civil Rights, Korean War, Vietnam War, and contemporary America. Organized into easily followed lessons, students (and parents!) will learn the modern history of our nation along with poetry, geography, character studies and much more!
