A Unique American History Instructional Model and Packages
Finding ways to make learning more relevant and engaging for students is an important component to homeschooling. When students connect to the material they are studying, they not only learn more, they understand more deeply. Our American story is a dramatic and compelling tale of excitement, romance, comedy, and is filled with both tragedies and triumphs. If told well, as a treasured classic, students are drawn to the content.  America: The Last Best Hope makes the history of America an interesting and exciting journey into our nation's past.  We encourage you to review their materials and decide for yourself!  (www.roadmaptolastbesthope.com)
