Since I teach as a group with various ages in our home, we are studying American History I next year. This FREE American History curriculum looks so informative and fun. It entails a literature approach to history with real living books and is written from a Christian perspective. This curriculum is geared towards grades 2-6, but can be easily adapted to any ages. It would be totally doable to assign your high schooler additional work, too.
On the website she includes a detailed suggested book list, but she stresses you can supplement with whatever you have at home or your what is available at your library. I also like how there are suggested videos, Draw Write Now, and History Pockets books to enhance the program, but not necessary. It can be used a full history curriculum or as a supplemental program. Do what works for you.
