Learning Assessments

You will not find very many tests or quizzes in the Cultures & Ideas lesson plans, so, the pressure of assigning grades to elementary students is taken off. Instead, your student will focus on learning the material well and at an individualized pace. Reinforce learning by copying passages, writing descriptions, finding works of art, acting out historical events, using encyclopedias, narrating, writing about historical figures, making charts, making posters, listening to classical music, and reproducing works of art. One day, you will see your spontaneously student pick up an encyclopedia to learn more or request a book from the library. Then you will know that Culture & Ideas lesson plans have helped you on a path of well planned learning.

Cultures & Ideas lesson plans offer additional resources for 7th and 8th grade students. Soar through the Roman empire like The Eagle of the Ninth. Then bring it all home with language arts exercises in The Eagle of the Ninth Study Guide.

Older students complete more written assignments because they are learning to give more output. This year, expect to see your older students writing about major historical events, creating brochures, creating charts, formulating interview questions, creating a book, researching essays, writing stories, copying diagrams, writing newspaper columns, and writing observations. And just wait until they start associating knowledge in one area with experience in another area. As your family uses Cultures & Ideas lesson plans, more concepts will fall into place.
