FAQs about Tennessee History for Kids booklets
4) Why produce the booklets?
Although teachers have been using the grade-specific texts on Tennessee History for Kids in class, they haven't been able to assign sections of the page to read because not every student has internet access at home. Some teachers have been printing out parts of the Tennessee History for Kids page, then taking it to the school's copier and making copies for all students.
But, alas, teachers are limited in how many copies they can make. The print editions look great and actually cost less than if a teacher spent hours making Tennessee History for Kids "textbooks" on her own.
5) When will future versions of Tennessee History for Kids booklets come out?
This summer (2013) we will write, design, and produce FOUR new booklets... each of them containing all the Tennessee-specific material that is required in grades 4, 5, 8 and the American history class typically taught in grade 11.
The reason we are creating new booklets is because of the curriculum change.
