Teacher’s Guide: This convenient teacher’s guide is all a parent or teacher needs to easily grade the 11th grade student assignments for British History: Observations & Assessments from Early Cultures to Today. Assignments, learning objectives, grading criteria, and short essay questions for all 34 chapters are included. As the teacher, you will enjoy partnering with your student as he or she processes British history while developing or strengthening a Christian world view.
The teacher’s guide offers the condensed version of the text book sans the readings each day. You have the “first thoughts” and the “chapter learning objectives” and then the various assignments for each lesson of each week. Also, they include the answer for each question to the daily assignments. Furthermore, the exam questions are included along with what would constitute an acceptable answer.
From the perspective of a teacher’s guide, there is everything here to aid the parent or instructor to teach the high school student British history. Unfortunately, the major assumption being made in this is that the student is dedicated enough to persist in the class each day. Sometimes this is a safe assumption. Sometimes it is not. Regardless, it must be noted that the parent will need to be more involved than just checking the answer to make sure the student is correct.
If you are teaching this curriculum, you will definitely need the teacher’s guide. The curriculum itself is second to none. I am again amazed at the pervasiveness of the course work. I highly recommend this history curriculum for all high school students.
