My son is currently a junior in Classical Conversation Challenge 3 and is struggling to keep up with the workload. The assigned text for US History is A Patriot's History by Schweikart and Allen. It is and excellent and comprehensive book, starting with Columbus and going through the War on Terror. However, it is a TON of reading on top of the research papers and speeches that correspond to this subject (not to mention the heavy workload in every other subject as well). I'm considering using this book as a guide to the subject matter being discussed in class, but instead of having my son read the book, having him watch the Hip Hughes YouTube videos that correspond to the chapter topics and use that information for his research papers and speeches. Is there anyone out there with experience in both resources that might be able to share some pros and cons with this idea? Just trying to figure out a way to make this manageable! Thanks!!
Interested in Funda Funda's (https://www.fundafundaacademy.com/product/us-history/) US History course. I have not found any reviews... anyone used it? Thanks!
The Potter School is offering a US Military History class. It of course appeals to my son. Do you think this could count as the traditional US History class - or must I add something to it and then what to add? The class is using a book called, "For the Common Defense: A Military History of the United States from 1607-2012." Your thoughts would be appreciated! Shelley in MA
What is the usual progression of studies in high school, as far as U.S. History I, II, Modern World History, and Geography? Our state requires all of these, for a total of 15 credits. However, I don't see any requirement at all for U.S. Government/Civics. We definitely want to include this. Would appreciate any recommendations about the order of these courses. I'm thinking of U.S. History I and U.S. Government/Civics simultaneously. Would this be a problem?
