The Student Text lessons are designed specifically for homeschoolers who have the freedom to learn through multiple learning styles; students are given multiple options for learning that include visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities, and lessons integrate the four learning styles and eight intelligences. Units open with a list of key concepts before diving into chapters that clearly explain events with a narrative-style tone. Each unit is then broken into four one-week segments, called phases, which cover multiple learning methods and provide the accompanying activities for the lessons.
The Teacher's Guide provides an introduction to the teaching methodology of the curriculum, including detailed notes on how to teach each phase. Notes on differentiating instruction begin each unit, and the units themselves have helpful background information and lesson instruction surrounding each reduced-size student page. Recaps, discussion notes, and questions are provided along with some answers (e.g. timeline dates).
The Test kit covers the material taught in the Phase 1 stages, and instead of quizzing students on names/places/dates, instead allows students to choose the areas which they are most familiar with, reflecting what they choose to focus their studies upon. Nine tests (one for each unit) are included, along with a separate answer key for each test.
The optional Elementary Activity Book provides a way for younger students to work through the same curriculum as older siblings. Following the same four phases as the regular curriculum, mazes, children's songs, art activities, Bible verses to think about, hands-on activities, and simplified narratives provide a way for children in grades K-4 to participate.
The three CD-Sets bring history to life through engaging audio narratives. True Tales features stories of fascinating people and amazing events; Digging Deeper tracks look at revivals and the hidden stories of the World Wars; What in the World? provides an overview of modern history.
Scriptures are NKJV.
