mothergooseof4 Posted September 20, 2012 Share Posted September 20, 2012 I am planning on ds 7th doing American History this year and for 8th. I planned to use TruthQuest this year with all of the kids, but am having a hard time making it happen with no schedule. I have been all over the internet the last few days trying to find a curriculum that would fit him. I can manage the younger two without one. I like HOD, but ds doesn't. Notgrass states that ATB is a one year program, but covers early Am. through current day. Most curricula take two years to cover this time period. Would it be worth spreading it out over two years with some extra literature selections from HOD, SL, MFW, etc.? Is it clear what to do and when? Is it fairly independent? The literature included seems a little young for a 7th-8th grader. I like the idea of spreading it out over two years because it would allow me the freedom to add some of the literature that I have been aching to do with him and some literature studies as well. Is ATB adequate coverage of this time period? Would it prepare ds if I choose to put him in MFW or HOD for high school? Anything else you want to add about ATB?
