Thread: Fearon's Our Century and alternates

  1. #1

    Question Fearon's Our Century and alternates

    I am working on our Unit 3 booklist for the next several weeks and I am a bit confused.

    Weeks 21 -23 use Fearon's Our Century 1950-1960 for In-depth history. Those weeks list an alternate of The 1950's by Feinstein with page numbers.

    Weeks 23-27 list Fearon's Our Century 1960-1970 as week 1 of 3, 2 of 3, and 3 of 3 then 2 of 3 and 3 of 3. The pages are different, so am I correct in assuming that this should be 1 of 5 etc?

    Week 25 lists an alternate of The 1950's by Feinstein but with the same pages as those read in Week 23. The 1960's by Feinstein is not listed as an alternate. Is this book an acceptable alternate or does it contain objectionable material?

    My library does not have the Fearon's Our Century books, but it does have the decade books by Feinstein. I had originally thought that I would substitute the Feinstein books, but now I am second-guessing that. Glancing ahead to Unit 4 shows me that I will have the same issues then. Two more of the Fearon's books are used without the Feinstein books listed as alternates.

    Any direction you can provide would be much appreciated.

    I have researched the problem areas that you brought to my attention in your post, here is what I've found:

    Fearon's Our Century 1960-1970 used in Weeks 23-27, This week numbers listed should be as follows: Week 1 of 5, 2 of 5, 3 of 5, 4 of 5, and 5 of 5.

    In Week 25 The 1950's by Feinstein assignment should not have been listed in this week, it should only have been placed in Week 23.

    The 1960's book by Feinstein was never used in the original curriculum and this is why is not listed with pages numbers in the alternate book list. You can use this book if you wish but would have to figure out the pages numbers that go with the time periods being studied each week.

    I hope this information helps. We thank you for bringing this to our attention, we will correct these areas immediately and have this fixed for the global update release of Year 4 on March 1, 2013. If you need additional assistance please let me know. Have a great day!

    Thank you Sharon. That does help a lot.

    If I figure out good page #s for the other series, I will try to remember to post them here.
