Teach Middle School Civics and Government with Confidence

"My ten year old remarked today, 'Seriously, this is the best subject that we do.' They love what they are learning and so do I as I am learning right alongside them."

Julie B., California

❌ The Problem

You really want to be a good parent. Not just a good "regular" parent. A good homeschool parent.

But it's hard sometimes. You have so many things to think about, so many plates spinning, so many demands and responsibilities. It's easy to feel overwhelmed.

Helping your middle school student understand civics and government shouldn't be one more burden.

✔️ The Solution

The Notgrass History team has experience as homeschool parents and as homeschool students. We've been there!

We've used curriculum that was frustrating. We've talked to other families about their bad experiences. We don't want that to happen to you!

Notgrass History makes it easy for you to teach and easy for your child to learn.

"This is written in such a way so that all the pieces make sense, and now it has given me a renewed interest in learning about our great country."

⚙️ How It Works

Notgrass History curriculum is designed so that one child can use it independently or multiple children can study it together. We give you flexible tools that you can adjust to the needs and abilities of each student. You'll find:

  • narrative lessons that are easy to read and understand
  • primary sources--real speeches, poetry, and advertisements from real people
  • historical novels and biographies that provide extra richness and depth
  • hands-on activities and projects for a variety of learning styles
  • a Christian worldview that upholds the Bible as God's word and honors Jesus as Savior of the world

Succeeding with Notgrass History is as easy as 1, 2, 3 . . .

1. Choose your package.

Order the Curriculum Package with or without the optional review material and the recommended literature.

2. Read the introduction.

We explain how everything fits together at the beginning of the book.

3. Start with Lesson 1.

Read the lesson. Complete the listed assignments. Done!

"I love the way the lessons are written and organized, and I love the pictures that are in each lesson bringing it to life."

📝 About Us

Ray Notgrass, Charlene Notgrass, Bethany Poore, John Notgrass, Mev McCurdy, Nate McCurdy

Hi! We're the Notgrass Family. Thanks for visiting!  

History lovers Ray and Charlene Notgrass raised three history lovers, John Notgrass, Bethany Poore, and Mary Evelyn McCurdy. When Mary Evelyn married Nate McCurdy, another history-lover joined the clan. We lead the team that brings you Notgrass History.

Creating high-quality curriculum for your homeschool is an honor and a joy for us. We read history for work. We read history for fun. We talk about history around the table . . . a lot. (Is that weird?) You'll see our love for history in every book we create.

We are followers of the Author of history. We want to help students see how God has been at work in the past and how He is at work today. We pray that our curriculum will help families understand God's truth.  

We also love homeschoolers! As veteran homeschoolers, we've learned a lot along the way. We've learned what works in real life and what doesn't. We want you to love using Notgrass History, so we make it easy for you to use.

Check out what we have to offer and let us know if you have any questions. We're here to help!
