The People, Places and Principles of America Kit

Description

Does American history sound dry and dusty? Is it hard to see the relevance to life today?

The People, Places, and Principles of America, from Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum, is a comprehensive study of American history from pre-Columbus through the election of President Obama. This first-year course extends to the start of the Civil War.

Content of each chapter of the entire course is based on the 15 major components of culture:

  • Families
  • Agriculture
  • Media
  • Military
  • Government
  • Religion
  • Education
  • Discoveries
  • Industry
  • Communication
  • Leaders
  • Light/energy
  • Art
  • Sports
  • Transportation

Each lesson incorporates a narrative carefully designed to engage the students emotionally and academically.

Theme art, time lines, maps and charts illustrate each lesson to “pull the student’s mind” into the text and clarify content. This course has been called “real history” because it ties the fifteen major cultural components to real people, places and principles which distinguish America. It is not revisionist history.

The vocabulary level is applicable for students from eighth through twelfth grade. The content is designed to raise students’ aspirations for noble and honorable lifestyles of the American Dream.

FULL COURSE KIT – 1ST YEAR (CHAPTERS 1-6) contains Texts, Activities, Teacher’s Resource Kit, and Student Resource Kit
