Unit Study
Grade School Multi-Subject Unit Study, Year Four: The History of the United States, Part One

This course (Year 4) includes a cumulative review of all of the roots in Volumes 1 and 2 for students who have been studying the roots over the course of the past three years (or for adventurous new students!). Students can access a full review of both volumes in our quizzes by following the “Cumulative Review” quizzes each week. Roots 1-50 from Volume 1, and roots 1-50 from Volume 2 will be included in the Fall course for Year 4. The Spring course will offer a review of roots 51-100 from both volumes.

Welcome to the Grade School Unit Study Program for 3rd through 6th grade students  designed to simplify and streamline your home education experience. Through an integrated literature-based curriculum, your family receives clearly laid out directions for the parent(s), hands-on project-based activities for students, and a once-a-week touch-base LIVE class where discussion, sharing, and learning takes place.

How it Works

Each full year is segmented into two parts occurring in the fall and spring– incorporating History, Science, Language Arts, Art, and Religion — to learn all subjects together in a unit that coordinates and dovetails into one harmonized year of learning.


The Four-Year Sequence

The entire program spans a four-year sequence based on the four volumes of TAN Books’ History series, The Story of Civilization. The following years of study can be taken independently or in any order.

               Ancient History (Volume 1, Year One)

               Medieval History (Volume 2, Year Two)

               The Making of the Modern World (Volume 3, Year Three)

               US History (Volume 4, Year Four)

Materials and Homework

The “Flipped Classroom”

The Grade School Unit Study Program uses a “flipped classroom” approach in a four-day-week course of study: families watch teacher-created videos and work together on interactive lessons (guided materials and instruction). In addition to home learning, the once-a-week LIVE online class “becomes the place to work through problems, advance concepts, and engage in collaborative learning” (The Flipped Classroom, https://www.educationnext.org/the-flipped-classroom/).

 Daily Activities

Families are provided with daily lessons, checklists,  and other resources and learning materials. Each week starts with a recorded, twenty-five-minute online class meeting for parents and students together with the instructor covering student learning from the previous week.

Whether schooling one or many, Unlimited Access is the affordable way to have choices and give your students courses that fit exactly what you need.
