Anyone familiar with Power Basics U.S. History or Short Lessons in U.S. History?

Recommended Posts

Short Lessons in US History is nice, but I don't think it could be more than a supplement, and even at that it would be a stretch to call it high school.


ETA- do you need high school? I think the Power Basics would be a better choice, but my SIL did use it for her son with a lot of heavy supplementing.

What I liked about the Walch Power Basics stuff was the workbook. It really got them thinking and applying in an accessible, reasonable way. You could pair that with the Great Courses US History from Audible. The WPB text itself is going to be pretty bare bones. You can probably see samples on Rainbow. I got stuff cheap on amazon, iirc. 


Just saying you could flex it and use the components you like and turn it into what you like. I think the discussion or application, helping them be informed, discriminating voters and news consumers, is the important part.
