The daily video lessons combined with the reading and writing assignments create a system of reinforcement that will help your student remember not just the content of the lessons, but also the chronological order they occurred in, and how the events shaped later history. As with other middle school courses, the parents are encouraged to learn along with their students, however, they are required only for grading the weekly essay.
