I am planning on using Hakim’s Story of Us for 9th grade American history, but I’ve been reading threads that have people using it for upper elementary grades. Is it too simple? I was planning on supplementing it with original documents and documentaries. We are also covering American literature next year, with groupings of "Who We Are," "The American Dream," "American Identity." (There is one more, but I don’t have my notes in front of me.)
Do you think this would be stringent enough? He is college bound.
