  1. Katherine Tanyu

    “Presidential Pathways: Exploring the Lives of U.S. Presidents” is a 174-page notebook companion to “Meet the Chief! A Fun Look at the U.S. Presidents”. If your kid is like mine, reading the thick volume P of the encyclopedia is considered really fun because of the topic “Presidents of the United States”. The notebook has a very helpful pacing guide for the semester and academic year. All the important vocabulary is laid out ready for entering the definitions. There are fact boxes per president, so dates of birth and death can easily be listed. Discussion questions help the student in internalizing information. There is a mixture of copywork, timeline, and drawing activating which makes the notebook quite balanced. Space for personal reflections, additional insights, and speech analysis are provided; so the student is encouraged to analyze and think for himself–not just fact search.
