Is this enough for American History?

Recommended Posts

I think I've got my hands on 2 sets of Teaching Company lectures...


American History

American Identity


They look too good to pick just one, and dd *loves* this sort of thing.


I plan to suppliment with biographies of some of the people covered, or their own writings, as we go through.


Then, I'd like to use Lies My Teacher Told Me...as dd also loves this sort of thing.


I guess I still need some sort of text?

Have you seen the Hippocampus video tutorials on the web? You could possibly assign them, and have the student write up an essay every week based on those facts, and that would round things out, I imagine...




Also, if your library has the Teaching Company's US History series, that would also round out the American Mind, and American Identity series, which incidentally are the same professors but are investigating more off-the-beaten-path topics, whereas the US History is straightforward required-learning topics... in my opinion!
