About the course

All American History teaches history through thematic units that allow students to add in additional information they've learned. With lessons focusing on personable aspects of history: how people lived, what they ate, what games they played, children will gain a comprehensive picture of each time period. With eight lessons each, the units focus on the age of exploration, the period of colonization, revolution, and the period of establishment & expansion. Illustrations, maps, and "impact" bullet points help to emphasize important elements of history and serve as visual reminders, while each chapter examines the atmosphere in which the event occurred, the event itself, and the impact this event had on the future of America.

The stories of our people are the story of our nation. America’s history is the story of Captain John Smith, Harriet Tubman, Dwight Eisenhower, and Sally Ride. Our All American History series unfolds America’s story.

Designed to be engaging and written in a comfortable style, All American History reads like a good book—bringing America’s story to life, piece by piece. Containing hundreds of images, dozens of maps, and key points to remember each week, All American History Volumes I and II offer a complete two-year U.S. history curriculum for students.

Author Celeste Rakes shares: “My belief is that history comes alive for students when they learn how people in past periods of history lived—what kind of clothes they wore, the houses they lived in, the foods they ate, the games they played, the schools they attended…”
