TruthQuest History puts God back at the center of the past. Centered on “living books,” this creative approach to history integrates elements of both Charlotte Mason and Classical methods. Short, very informal introductions are written directly to the student and open up each topic with a distinctly Christian perspective. Suggestions for activities or writing exercises are often included as well. The booklists follow, with selected annotations on what pages or sections to read and appropriate grade levels for each entry. Incredibly flexible in nature, families can proceed at the pace that’s best for their students as they select “spines,” biographies, in-print books, and out-of-print classics from the extensive lists.
Proceeding chronologically, entries include lists for The First Settlement, Sir Walter Raleigh, King Philip’s War, French & Indian War, War of Independence, American Art, George Washington, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Rush, and other relevant unit-study topics.
Grades 1-5; may be adapted for younger or older siblings. 171 pages, softcover, spiral-bound.
Full resource list is included at the back of the book.
