It's Like Having a Money Tree in Your Back Yard!
Well, here we are, half way through March and the homeschool convention season is in full swing. This is the time of year that many of us start to decide on curriculum for the upcoming school year.
This week's freebie will be great for anyone looking for a good high school level American History program. Right now the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op is offering a one year subscription to The Idea of America.
Pearson Education has authorized the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op to give away 1,000 full-year subscriptions ONLY to The Idea of America, absolutely FREE (excepting our service fee of $7.95). Ordinarily, this would cost $39.95 value. Membership to the co-op is free. This deal is to good to past up!
The idea behind The Idea of America is that Americans are engaged in a constant debate -- the "Great Debate" -- over the proper balance between certain essential values. Students discover the "value tensions" that define and strengthen our republic, study their role in American history, and develop their own opinions on these enduring fundamental issues.
The goal of this curriculum is to give students the knowledge and skills they need to fulfill the duties of citizenship in our participatory democracy. Students analyze, debate, and form opinions so that they can help make the decisions that will guide our nation.Check it out at: https://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.org/index.php?option=com_hsbc_epp_order&Itemid=1528
