Middle School American History (Casper)
Welcome to the exciting world of American History! This year will be filled with the fascinating stories of our amazing country. We will be using old books as our resources; most of them published over 100 years ago. Fortunately, homeschool groups have made these available online. They can be read online for free, or you may choose to download them for access without an online connection. They are also available in hard copies.
The curriculum, which is provided, will have weekly reading assignments from these resources. At the end of each week’s assignment, there is an answer sheet with questions and activities garnered from the readings. Students should answer the questions and complete map work. Answer sheets will be turned in each week and the map book will be graded periodically.
