I love history. I cannot get enough of it. It has always been my favorite subject and before we made the decision to homeschool, I was in college to become a history teacher. Needless to say when the opportunity arrived for to review Dave Raymond's American History 2 course from Roman Roads Media, though I don't have a student in the age bracket, I jumped and yes even BEGGED the Schoolhouse Review Crew leaders for the opportunity. They had pity on me (LOL) and I am eager to share my review!
What is Roman Roads Media?
Roman Roads Media is a publisher of Christian curriculum within a classical education style for the homeschooler. They provide quality video instruction and resources for the homeschooling family. They have partnered with master teachers in education to make it possible for homeschoolers around the world to have a chance at exceptional biblical worldview curriculum..right in their living room.
From Logic to Latin to the Greeks and American History, Roman Roads Media provides courses for 4th grade and up (though most are geared for middle and high school)! These video courses make independent learning possible and gives the parents a chance to offer their student a course where the teacher is passionate about their subject matter.
For this review, I chose to review Dave Raymond's American History 2 course. This curriculum is geared to ages 12 and up. The course includes a 4 disc DVD set--the Teacher Guide and Student reader are available as pdfs on one of the DVD's in the set. The curriculum includes the chance to produce a history portfolio, write a research and thesis paper and give a presentation. The program is set up for a 5 day school week with daily assignments and weekly exams. The DVD's usually retail for $100, but the set is on sale as of the date of this review for just $75!
