These lessons are organized into 10 decades (one manual per decade). Each decade is taught for approximately three weeks. The historical material is divided into three parts -
- World History
- American History
- Religious History (with emphasis on the founding and growth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the early 1800s).
Families who are not of the Latter-day Saint faith are free to study their own religion, its history and doctrine, during the third week of study.
Suggested activities, projects, and study materials are provided in the lessons to help the students comprehend the fascinating events of each 10-year period.
A Student workbook may also be purchased as a companion to the parent/teacher manuals.
