I was looking at All In One high school's history, but it seems a bit heavier than what will work for ds. I'm torn between wanting something like workbooks (alpha/omega type thing) and wanting something a bit more engaging... but not a heavyweight type of curriculum.

Am I dreaming that there's something somewhere in the middle?

Are you looking for US or World History?

I'm not a fan of heavy duty history unless it is a particular interest. For World History, we read through all four volumes of Mystery of History. It took two lessons a day for the school year. That was it. You can get the texts in audiobooks too.

You could add quizzes or quarterly tests as needed.

Generally, my go to has been Abeka. Reading, questions, move on. Very dry, but does the job.

For my dyslexic, we used Walch Powerbasics for Geography, World History and US History. We might use them for government too. They are short reads and questions following each section and activities. It could easily be pushed to a semester study instead of a full credit if you wanted. It is more geared toward remedial, ESL, or adult education. Not a lot of detail, just the bascis. The prices aren't too bad either.

Thank you, Tracy, that really helps! We decided to go with Powerbasics this year, until he finds his feet. Smile
