History doesn't have to be boring
if you tell it like a story!
A different approach to teaching history.
Here at Our Land Publications we believe that an accurate understanding of our history is important. The question is how to get the points across without boring the student to death. Bringing the subject to life and making it relevant to young readers without losing sight of the essentials every student should learn can seem almost impossible.
Our Land Publications curriculum solutions make the impossible possible by integrating textbook content into a newspaper format.
Newspaper-like headlines and articles highlight each issue. Historical events are presented as though they just took place. People are seen as living and real. History comes to life on a scale that students find interesting, instead of intimidating. Written for fourth and fifth grade level readers, the programs have also been used successfully with upper level ESL and academically challenged students.
Each series includes 27 to 33 four pages issues covering a specific time period. Issues are packaged in student sets ideal for homeschooling, independent study, or in the classroom (sold in sets of 10 and 25). A thorough teachers manual provides comprehensive support for each series.
Our Land of Liberty covers the history of the United States from before European discovery to the current day and is targeted for the 5th grade. My State history programs for the 4th grade currently include My California, My Texas, My Indiana and My Illinois.
