All American History: Uniting America’s Story, Piece by Piece by Celeste Rakes

The stories of our people are the story of our nation. America’s history is the story of Captain John Smith, Harriet Tubman, Dwight Eisenhower, and Sally Ride. Our All American History series unfolds America’s story. Designed to be engaging and written in a comfortable style, All American History reads like a good book—bringing America’s story to life, piece by piece. Containing hundreds of images, dozens of maps, and key points to remember each week,

All American History Volumes I and II offer a complete two-year U.S. history curriculum for students in grades 5 to high school when combined with the Student Activity Book and the Teacher’s Guide. (Adaptable for younger students.)

Author Celeste Rakes shares: “My belief is that history comes alive for students when they learn how people in past periods of history lived—what kind of clothes they wore, the houses they lived in, the foods they ate, the games they played, the schools they attended…”

Like all good stories, each volume’s 32 weekly lessons set the scene and the historical atmosphere of the events at hand, unfold the events in vivid narrative style, and then explore the impact each event had on the nation’s future.

The Student Activity Book will help students: 

  • Gain note-taking skills
  • Focus on what is important

Explore America’s vibrant history, one story at a time.
