Designed using the Charlotte Mason approach, this homeschool curriculum will fill a vital gap in e lementary-aged students' knowledge of American history, and will provide African-American children with a sense of who they are spiritually and historically. Based around a suggested reading list, this is a flexible curriculum that could easily serve as a launching pad for a timeline or notebooking-based course.
A list of suggested books and other needed resources is provided at the beginning of the guide, along with a suggested reading plan (with page numbers) for a 4-day/week schedule.
Units clearly identify the time period or event being studied, and list:
