Biographies of the Revolution Teacher's Guide
Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has easy-to-manage lessons that combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities. Worksheets, quizzes, and tests are perforated and three-hole punched — materials are easy to tear out, hand out, grade, and store. Adjust the schedule and materials needed to best work within your educational program. Space is given for assignments dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. Adapt the days to your school schedule.
Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the Teacher Guide. They should be encouraged to complete as many of the activities and projects as possible as well. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. If used with younger students, they may be given the option of only choosing activities or projects of interest to them and taking open book tests.
Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has four to five days. Adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.
As a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and a veteran of Vietnam, I have the greatest respect and love for our Country. Unfortunately, our children are not being taught the history of our nation in most of our public and private schools.
America’s Struggle to Become a Nation and The Fight for Freedom written by Rick and Marilyn Boyer together with student worksheets and biographical reference materials are an outstanding and invaluable information resource for teaching the formation and development of the United States of America.
Rick and Marilyn have done a remarkable job of documenting the struggles and sacrifices of brave men and women who, “with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence,” risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to build this land we love.
Every American would benefit by reading these marvelous works designed to preserve our heritage as a nation.

I found this history program to be simple to implement and very open and go for me as a teacher. Everything that needs to be done is laid out, and other than the occasional supply for a project, there’s nothing-additional necessary to buy. Even the supplies for the projects are simple to obtain.
We really enjoyed this curriculum. The chapters of history were very readable. My eleven year old read independently, but I often sat and read through sections with my nine year old. The full-color illustrations, Bible verses and primary source quotations in the sidebars make looking through the student textbook a pleasurable experience. The questions in the worksheets focus on story comprehension, so they are simple enough for a younger elementary school student if a parent is teaching multiple ages. The audio is also pleasant to listen to and my children enjoyed listening to some of the audio tracks multiple times.
I would definitely consider buying other history books in this series. It is pleasurable to go through, and I learned more about the founding fathers and other people who played parts in the war that I did not know before we started going through this curriculum.
