Rated 4 out of 5 by dnabarlow Very nice enhancement...nicer if it were in text as separately it gets forgotten!
We enjoy the historical articles in the Student Activities Manual & the maps are excellent practice as are the chapter reviews in here. But it would be nice if the maps were in the student worksheets & the articles & chapter reviews were in the textbook instead. We tend to forget the activities manual...not to mention it's often a lot of extra work in an already lengthy subject!
This isn't necessary for your course (except the maps in it!), but is a nice enhancement, particularly the historic articles which then have comprehension questions afterwards...which could be skipped if you don't need work on comprehension. If there's no chapter review, I'll have them do the review in here. The maps in here are a must, though...so if you don't have the activities manual, you'll need to get maps somewhere yourself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jamie American Republic is a great eight grade history curriculum!
I have used BJU Press subject kits for eight years and would never make a change. They are a solid biblically based curriculum. American Republic goes in-depth about our American history! Compared to other books I have looked at, it has no comparison. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone wanting to homeschool!
