I’ve noticed over the years that students seldom name geography as their favorite subject. And really, who can blame them?
Geography typically tends to be a dry subject with lots of rote memorization and very little context to make it come alive. Who would actually enjoy THAT?
Our family has tried three different geography courses in the past with varying levels of success. Since I’m all about finding the perfect fit for us, I decided to try yet another course this year—the world geography homeschool curriculum from Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum.
I received this product for free and was compensated for my time. All thoughts and opinions are my own; I was not required to post a positive review.
PAC World Geography Homeschool Curriculum
Paradigm Accelerated Curriculum offers a straightforward approach to high school geography with an easy open-and-go format that is perfect for homeschool use.
PAC world geography curriculum covers the six basic geographic regions of the world in six chapters:
- North America
- South America
This geography course doesn’t just force kids to memorize maps and endless lists of countries, either. Yes, there certainly ARE maps and memorization included, but there is so much more.
Each chapter covers fifteen geographical topics that will help add interest to the study: climate, wildlife, transportation, famous places, important events, and more.
The written activities are clear and straight-forward, but at the same time they are challenging. I love that the questions follow relatively short sections of text, aiding in comprehension and retention.
Each chapter of the PAC world geography course is made up of a text booklet and an activity booklet. We love the convenience and portability of these compact course booklets—no more lugging heavy textbooks along while running errands or traveling!
This course is also available in digital format which can be read directly from any electronic device. Super convenient for reading on the go!
Includes everything you need
The Teacher’s Resource Kit contains everything else that is needed to complete the course: answers to activity questions, section quizzes, and chapter tests. There is no need to spend more money or time trying to gather additional resources. Yay!
Quizzes are included after every lessons, with a test at the end of each chapter (15 lessons). The frequent review is an important part of reinforcing learning.
If students make at least an 85% on each of the 3 quizzes, they may skip the chapter test. This incentive definitely encourages a student to master the material!
Designed for independent learning
PAC world geography curriculum is perfectly designed for independent learning. The text is divided into lessons which lend themselves well to daily assignments. In addition, students can score their own work and correct any errors–-a huge plus when homeschooling a large family!
