This complete social studies curriculum assumes a strong Christian worldview. It is doctrinal in that it reflects a strictly fundamentalist view - I would not advise using the curriculum if you are Catholic. For many Christians, however, this would be an excellent choice because of its Godly perspective. Doctrine and God's plan for mankind are woven throughout the course. I have found BJUP history texts to be less "dry" than those of other publishers. They provide all of the facts and background of standard texts, but the narrative is much more engaging to read. Many of the texts at both levels have been revised and updated in the last several years. We have personally used these texts, mostly at upper levels, both as our basic course and as our basic reference book when using other curriculum materials because they are solid and interpret history from a Christian perspective. The texts are all colorful and non-consumable. Teacher's editions contain daily lesson plans, usually with reduced student pages, and helpful background and supplemental information. These also contain the answers to text questions (although chapter terms are not defined for the teacher). Supplemental student materials and activity sheets provide mapwork, analysis of events, and research projects correlating to the text. Student worktexts or notebooks at the elementary levels are an integral part of the course, providing maps, charts, and student activity pages. At the upper level, student activity books are considered optional, as are the map packets, but I would recommend purchasing them if you are using this as your basal course. There are a lot of activities in the workbooks, and I wouldn't recommend trying to do each activity. I have personally found many that enhance the study, including mapwork pages and exercises that present a unique perspective on particular people or events. Others provide a good review of chapter material. Maps and More packets (now included in Teacher's Editions) for upper elementary levels provide a series of charts illustrating maps, crafts, and culture. Tests are well-constructed and easy-to-use. I particularly like the inclusion of essay questions at the high school level, as this better prepares students for the kinds of tests they will encounter in college. (In general, homeschoolers probably don't get enough experience with essay questions.) Essential materials are listed first by grade level, followed by asterisked (*) support items. Complete Home School Kits contain all of the required materials at a savings. Supplemental items used for multiple grade levels are in a separate section at the end.

Updated in 2013. Study is on the discovery and colonization of the New World, from early American civilizations through the middle 1600s. Topics include Plymouth Plantation, trading, Native Americans and homes and families.
