Dave Raymond’s American History Curriculum from Compass Classroom
History is best understood through the dual lenses of dramatic story and godly wisdom. Veteran history teacher Dave Raymond gives a comprehensive history of the United States by applying a Christian worldview to the characters, events, theology, literature, art, and religious beliefs of the nation. It is an engaging american history homeschool curriculum for students age 12 and up. Designed for upper middle school and lower high school (although upper high school would enjoy it, too). Dave uses a combination of lectures and readings structured for a 5-day school week with daily tasks, weekly exams, and projects, as well as a year-long portfolio.
American History is intended to cover a full school year. It consists of 26 lessons plus 4 projects. Each lesson includes five approximately 10-minute lectures (for an hour of teaching per lesson), daily tasks, readings, weekly exams, and more. A year-long journal is also a part of the class. This american history homeschool curriculum also utilizes a Student Reader with over 100 pages of original texts and writings from history.

Now you can have hundreds of historical outline maps at your finger tips. Save yourself countless hours scouring the internet for the perfect printable map for your history lesson! Recommended by The Well-Trained Mind! With Map Trek Historical Atlas and Outline Maps, your students can…
- See the landscape (i.e. the political boundaries, major cities, etc.) from the historical time period – instead of what the region is like today.
- Label places of historical significance on their outline maps.
- Color in empires, trace travel routes, draw scales and directional symbols, etc.
- Maps don’t have to be boring… Students should feel free to experiment with colored markers, pencils, paint and even glitter (this is optional, of course!)

King Alfred’s English & Baktar’s Tale
King Alfred’s English: A History of the Language We Speak and Why We Should Be Glad We Do
Do you remember the first time you looked under the hood of a car or popped off the back of an electric toy to see the inner workings? Well, most of us go through our entire life speaking a highly complex and organized set of sounds we call language without ever getting a glimpse under its hood. So come have a look at some of the hidden springs and gears that have steered and energized English over the centuries. King Alfred’s English provides a guided tour of forces and events, conquerors and writers that have shaped, simplified, matured and expanded English into what it is today—the first truly global language in history.
Baktar, A Tale From the Andes: A unique story about a girl and a cat and the Inca King Pachacuti. Part true, part myth, all fun. Learn about the ancient Incas and the famous “Inca Way.”
