Complete English Boy Package



U.S. History I uses a compelling combination of full-length novels/plays to earn credit in American Literature.  Short stories are alternated with longer works of literature, paired with vocabulary work and guided questioning. Our innovative approach to literature alternates targeted assignments with Charlotte Mason follow-ups to create a diverse and fascinating year of study!

The composition portion uses In Their Sandals twice weekly. The grammar portion uses the first half of Preparing for Usefulness: English 8 twice weekly (alternating with composition). Together these resources add one full English credit to your student’s program.

This package provides the literature and grammar resources for U.S. History I, and includes In Their Sandals as its composition resource. This package differs from the girl version by including Rifles for Watie, To Build a Fire, and The Hoosier School-Master for boys.
