A wonderful and thorough program. Apr 8, 2010
We started with the American History timeline this last year. With over 400 timeline figures, it was a little overwhelming to begin with. However, once we decided on a course of action, the program has proved to be an excellent way to learn history.(HINT: You do not have to research every figure in the packet. Some are okay to read what's under the figure and place it on the timeline. Don't waste time trying to cover every item or that's all you'll be doing every day.)
The program can be worked with the suggested History resources and younger children will be able to place events in order in their minds, after placing them in order on the timeline. Since my daughter is in high school, we decided to up the requirements. She first cut out silouhettes of the time figures(very time consuming, but looks wonderful when completed) and glued them on to her timeline. In our case, we have the timeline on 8 1/2 X 11 colored sheets of paper in a large three-ring binder. Each page generally only covers 10 to 15 years. The page opposite the timeline contains her research on specific figures.
The research does take a good amount of time, however, we're combining her English Grammar, Writing, and Research training in this one subject. She's keeping a running Bibliography of books and websites she uses to gather information. She says she remembers timelines, people and events much better since she's done the research and completed the timeline.
Over the course of this school year, she has done daily research, major papers on the Revolutionary War, The War of 1812, The American Civil War, etc. Her writing and researching abilities have been honed and stretched. Most of all, she KNOWS her American History.
On the other end of the spectrum. I have a child with some learning issues. I still plan to use this timeline with him. We'll use other methods of gathering the information, but I'm sure the result will still be that he'll know his history, because he took the time to make the timeline and learn about some of the major figures.
