From the Celt Warriors to the Present day, your Highschool student will learn all about British History from a Christian Worldview presented by author James Stobaugh.
History Observations & British Assessments from Early Cultures to Today contains 34 chapters with 5 lessons each. Each lesson will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes and consists of a short reading section with critical thinking questions. Some of these questions can be deduced from the reading, some require thinking 'outside the box' and a few require you to search out the answer in other materials. At the end of each week's lessons is a short exam.
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book - a WHOLE book just on Britain.....awesome!
Once I got to the section on Druids and "Why is Halloween a dangerous, anti-Christian Holiday?" I was HOOKED! I read through the Early Roman Influence, Christianity in England, Age of Exploration, Elizabethan Life and a wonderful section on the King James Bible in a non-stop session before 'life called'.
Growing up I didn't have a great experience learning history. What I do know I've learnt mostly from teaching my own children. So, to get a second opinion, I handed this book to our own resident teen-aged History-buff . His take was a wee-bit different.
From early on in our Homeschool we've studied History using living books and a lot of hands-on activities. So, for him, History is fascinating!! While he liked this book, he thought the lessons were a little too short. He kept asking for more information, more information, more information!
So, in our opinion, this would be a great study for someone who hasn't studied much History -or- doesn't particularly care for the subject -or- just wants a straight up study of History without additional readings, literature suggestions or mapwork.

I received a Teacher and Student book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
