This study guide was developed for use by middle school and high school age home-schooled students . It can be used as a stand alone resource or in conjunction with a Kansas History textbook. There are 15 lessons, and each lesson includes an overview of the topic or historic period , list of significant events, words and concepts, important people, spiritual issues, other resources available through libraries, as well as chronological references to the Kansas Devotional Book by the author. It is a wonderful resource for guided research and stimulates discovery. The student is encouraged to relate specific devotional readings to a period of time, or a particular day of study.
