NOTES FOR USING OUR STATE HISTORY COURSE FOR SECONDARY-LEVEL:
The front section of our Master Lesson Plan is a teacher-directed, 30-lesson plan that can be easily adjusted to your desired course length and difficulty level by using the Expansion Suggestions in each lesson. In the Appendix are Independent Study Guides for a 6-week program and a one-semester program. These are written to the student and are the only part of our entire program that may be photocopied within one class or family only. The Student Booklet may not be copied, so you will need one book per student. For a high school level, you will want to have the students make the project notebook in a 3-ring binder (binder is provided by the student). This option teaches organizational skills and allows flexibility for adding additional research projects. In any setting with more than one student, students can divide a list of topics for each research project, then share their research through oral and written reports that can be added to each student’s notebook. Our Student Booklet includes a study guide on your state constitution (assigned in the one-semester course or can be added to the six-week course). It is an interesting and enlightening study on the Biblical concept of delegated authority and responsibility as well as inter-personal relationships. You may obtain a copy of your state constitution online or from your library. Students read through the constitution, answer the study guide questions, then take a test. Another project that is included is a career study to be done during the economy section.
