Recommended Posts

Have any of you used BJU 8th grade American History for your child?  My daughter is Community College bound or will work after she graduates.  Thoughts??

If she wants to go to a cc, then would the reading level issue come back to bite her later?  You're going to find someone who's done it, sure, but in general I don't think I would.  Maybe take the high school text and slow it down over two years, read sections aloud, discuss, flesh it out with videos.  If it's really a bad fit, find something else entirely.  You could go a different direction and let her research topics and people, so she's spending time, engaging and retaining.  Have her start reading a newspaper and learning about voting and current events.  She doesn't have to learn a ton of US history, but you want that thought process to mature so she understands how things connect to what is going on right now.
