Dave Raymond's American HistoryHot
History is best understood through the dual lenses of dramatic story and godly wisdom. Veteran history teacher Dave Raymond gives a comprehensive history of the United States by applying a Christian worldview to the characters, events, theology, literature, art, and religious beliefs of the nation. It is an engaging class for Middle school and High school students (Worth one High School History/Social Studies credit.)
American History is a one-year class that consists of 26 lessons, 4 projects, a Student Reader (over 400 pages), a Teacher’s Guide, Weekly Exams, and a year-long Portfolio. Each lesson includes 5 video lectures (approximately 10 minutes each, or an hour of video per lesson).
This video curriculum had great projects (but not too many) and terrific source materials for reading (sometimes more than we had time to read) and the video teaching was spectacular! Dave Raymond not only explained what happened, but why it happened, and this course sparked many great conversations between my student and myself.
