Reviews - What do customers think about Foundations of Character Homeschool Curriculum Kit (Drive Thru History America)?
The truth Feb 24, 2009
Never before have American's needed to learn more about their CHRISTIAN history.Back when politicians were not all corrupt and spending us into debt like children with their Daddy's credit card. My kids loved this program!
Propaganda at its worst Dec 17, 2008
Cherry-picks its subject matter in order to make its point that America is a Christian nation. Ignores founders like Thomas Paine and Thomas Jefferson while distorting the views of George Washington and John Adams. In no way should this DVD set be construed as an attempt to teach history. It is quite simply a tool for the indoctrination of children.
Making History FUN! Aug 14, 2008
Wish I had this when I was growing up...I am learning History with my kids, and this guy is hilarious! MUST HAVE! Especially for home schoolers!
Great DVD Jun 16, 2008
This is a wonderful DVD series. My children (9,8,5) have loved watching the movie segments about the characters from American history. There are even some that I had never heard of. Mr. Stotts puts a humorous twist on his narratives of each person that keeps the viewer very involved. I highly recommend this video.
An outstanding teaching aid Feb 6, 2008
Teaches American history as it really happened. Takes the reader on a journey through American history, accompanied by historical figures that paid the price to gain the freedom we enjoy today. Investigates the worldview of our nation's Founders and gives a perspective of American history that has been largely lost today. Designed as a teacher's text, it also makes for a great supplement for any history student.
