American Heritage Education Foundation–America’s Heritage: An Adventure in Liberty

Photobucket

As a member of TOS HomeschoolCrew, I received a CD entitled America’s Heritage:  An Adventure in Liberty from the American Heritage Education Foundation for review.  I borrowed this summary of the American Heritage Education Foundation’s mission from the website:

AHEF is a non-profit, non-partisan educational foundation dedicated to the understanding and teaching of America’s factual and philosophical heritage to promote constructive citizenship and Freedom, Unity, Progress, and Responsibility among our students and citizens.

The lesson plans contained within the curriculum are in line with this mission.  The activities within the individual lessons are diverse–the first couple in the elementary section include writing poems and playing a simulation game.  Often, primary sources are used as a part of the lesson. 

My children are a little young for the lessons, although the curriculum supplement is advertised as being for grades K-12.  I think this might be stretching it just a little, but the lessons contained in this resource are divided into elementary, middle, and high school, which makes this a resource that could prove to be useful for quite a long time.

America’s Heritage:  An Adventure in Liberty is a resource that is most definitely written for classroom use.  The activities are geared toward being used by large groups of students.  However, some of the lessons could likely be adapted for smaller group use. 

As a home educating parent, I’m not sure that I would put forth the effort to modify the lessons for individual use or for use with a smaller group.  One possible exception might be if we were involved in some sort of co-op or group learning activity for which one of the lessons or activities would be appropriate.  However, I think this is a worthwhile resource to have on hand because it does contain a wealth of primary sources, games, puzzles, and activities, and it is FREE

Did you catch that? 

It’s FREE!
