United States History: What To Cover in Our Homeschool

In light if the new A.P. History Standards development, I do not know whether getting my kids college credit by A.P. Exam is worth the college credit. It also makes me wonder what I should cover and how. I am the teacher in my little homeschool, after all! There are so many things in United States History. There are many things I do not know. I know the values I have and I know what is important to me. I wish I could cover everything God would want me to cover, at least. What would God have me and my kids know?

New A.P. U.S. History Standards, 2014, by the College Board

I took A.P. American History in High School. Among all of the important things I learned, I learned that textbooks are not the best source for history lessons, but instead, articles and books written specifically about each period by historians who were specialists in a certain piece of history in a specific time period.

I have endeavored, so far, in teaching my children, to find primary sources and texts written by historians who are experts in a certain topic. This is much easier now because I can just download very old free kindle books typed up by groups of volunteers. I read the long books which are very detailed. Then I teach my children about what I have read.

Thus my children do not learn by textbook or by a pre-written curriculum. I try to give them an accurate picture of history. I try to give them a picture of history showing many different peoples and their unique perspectives. My children know that from the perspective of one group, it was thus, and from the perspective of this other, it was thus.

This method reminds me that I cannot possibly cover everything. The more detail with which I cover things, the fewer items I can cover. This begs the question, what shall I cover? An outline written by God wouod be ideal. He knows what my kids face in the future, and thus, what they, personally, need to know. I can ask God, but how will He answer? Will he tell me by leading me to certain books? I really need His help on this matter.

Another question I have is this: If what is covered for the A.P. Exam is changing, are the items for the CLEP also changing in the same way? I would assume so, as they are both created by the College Board. If this be the case, then what an I to do? I did want to teach my seventh grader now, things she will need to know to pass one of these tests for college credit, but I do not want to only teach her certain things, because they will give her college credit. Is the goal of getting College Credit, more important than to know what God wants her to know?

I can honestly say, I do want both. I want her to get college credit and I want her to know, that what God wants her to know, are these other things, and they are more imoortant things to know.

I do think that to teach her what God would have me teach her, is what I should do first. After I have covered those things really well, I think I should then guide her to study for the college tests, knowing that the things I will have taught her well already, will help her to have a strong foundation already, and will keep her from becoming indoctrinated whilst studying for the college test.

This in definitely a challenging time period in history. To explain all this in heaven will be interesting. When I get to heaven, hopefully, people will be pleased with what I have taught my children concerning the lives which they, those citizens of heaven, experienced. My goal is to please them.

Here is a web site I have also found. I am wondering whether it be accurate and a good place to start. http://www.ushistory.org/us/
