TAPESTRY OF GRACE
-
Tapestry of Grace is a unit study curriculum that covers most of the
major subject areas for all your students in grades K through 12. It
covers the same general topics for all students simultaneously, but
instruction and activities are divided into four levels of learning.
-
The divisions are:
*Lower Grammar (Grades K-3)
*Upper Grammar (Grades 3-6)
*Dialectic (Grades 6-9)
*Rhetoric (Grades 9-12)
-
There is a purposeful overlap here to address the reality that students
at the same ages rarely progress at the same rate.
Subject areas covered include history, writing, literature, fine arts,
geography, church history, including missions, and Bible. TOG uses non-
fiction as well as fiction books. It includes multi-sensory learning
options to address different learning styles and interests, ranging from
reading, writing, comprehension/discussions questions, and simple art
projects, to full costumed reenactments. Detailed lesson plans and
discussion outlines enable parents to teach with confidence.
Year 1: The History of Redemption covers Creation through the fall of
Rome.

message of the U.S. Constitution and to demonstrate how it serves us

structure of the document accessible for all students. Using a unique,
two-column format, the full text of the Constitution is presented beside
an explanation of its meaning in terms students will understand. Divided

and directives for outside work. The book begins with a study of the
Declaration of Independence for historical perspective. --$6.00

WHY AMERICA IS FREE: A HISTORY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC
(Grades 5th-8th)
-- The book's purpose is to revive thoughtful patriotism in the United
States - patriotism based on the simple idea that Americans are indebted
to the men and women of the revolutionary generation for the freedoms we
enjoy. It introduces students to the story of the American Revolution in
a way that will enrich their appreciation of our free system of
government.

Why America Is Free is based on the premise that the revolutionary
generation enunciated the fundamental principles of liberty and
constructed the foundations upon which American freedom has grown for
more than two centuries. The great accomplishments of later generations
- the abolition of slavery, the recognition of the civil liberties of
women and minorities, and the spreading of American principles of
natural rights and representative government throughout the world - were
based on the achievements of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James
Madison, and the thousands of individual men and women whose sacrifices
made the American Revolution a success.

Why America Is Free teaches that the American Revolution is an ongoing
revolution, and its ultimate fulfillment is the civic responsibility of
all Americans. The future of liberty is in our hands, and ultimately the
hands of our children.

Besides the actual history, this book includes personal accounts, and
what life was like at that time. --$6.00
