I started a US History Class for High School the end of August and we use Drive through History to end the class. The students enjoy the class, but they wait for the DVDs with excitement and expectation. These series of DVDs are very interesting and full of fun. I highly recommend them.”

These dvds are for kids of various ages, from upper elementary to adult! My high schooler used the Foundations of Character dvd & book as a supplement to her American History class in 9th grade. My 5th grader recently was writing a research paper on Noah Webster and used the same dvd & book as one of his resources. Dave Stotts is entertaining for kids and the information presented with a Christian worldview is both interesting & enlightening. I even lent the dvd about Rome to a friend of mine to view before her trip in a couple months so they might check out some of the places that may not be on the typical Rome tour. I took advantage and bought all of them that I didn't have through this Co-op deal when it came before. I've passed the deal onto my homeschool group this time around. May God bless Dave Stotts and all those involved with making these dvds!”

I was using workbooks to teach my son about history & he was bored to death. I decided to try Drive-thru history and now he loves history. It has actually brought history to life & he is learning so much from it. My daughter who is in 3rd grade loves it as well, but it is definitely more geared for middle school and up. I am so happy I found something that works better for him. I highly recommend it!!”

Our family has enjoyed the Drive-Thru-History DVD's. We always watch them together as a family. They are both entertaining and educational. My 8 yr old son is always asking if he can watch them, and I know he is learning something. Great purchase!!”
Judy, Co-op Member
We LOVE the Drive Thru History dvds! My children are younger, 7 and 10, but they just soak up the facts and really enjoy the humor they are presented with. We are saving some of the dvds to go along with the history we will be studying next year. I have told several other families about the dvds.”

Drive Thru-History is a really fun way to learn about historical places and people. The Rome/Greece/Turkey/Asia set includes worksheets that have prompted some meaningful discussions with my 10 and 12 year old children. I myself have learned information that I've never encountered by learning history the "traditional" way. The best part is that it is produced from a Christian perspective. This is not dry, boring history...it is like a tour of the areas and David Stotts is very funny and entertaining. The graphics are excellent.

The American History set includes more than just worksheets, there is a student workbook and a teacher guide. This is written at a 6-8th grade level and accompanies the DVD's. The American History series is a stand-alone curriculum when using the workbook. It is thought-provoking and includes good suggestions for activities as well.

I will continue to add any other sets that are produced in this series to our home library, and would recommend them for middle school and older students. Of course, younger students also like to watch as they play in the background...they want to see what is so funny and love the sights and sounds too.”

Our family has now gone through the entire set of Drive Thru History and overall, I think it is a great resource. My husband especially appreciates the Biblical world view and its depiction of the impact Christianity has had on world history. I will never read my Bible the same way. I understand what was going on now politically and historically.

A few cautions: The programs on Rome, Greece and Turkey contain nudity that we found a huge, unnecessary distraction. Briefly (Rome,) they put swimsuits on the depictions of the gods but unfortunately for the remainder of the series, they are shown in their various states of nudity. These are shown repeatedly and slowly. And again, shown in the "best of DTH" segment on East Meets West.

There is also some minor crudity on the part of the host (ancient restroom humor, etc) and an odd scene with him in a pool, involving some sort of posing.

The America series, I can heartily recommend without reservation. And East Meets West was very good also, except for the "best of" episode that revisits the parts dealing with the gods, etc. My family greatly enjoyed the series, in spite of our desire to cover it up on occasion. However, even the audio alone was profitable. We will always remember the underground city churches in Cappadocia, the Martydom of Polycarp (Play the Man!), the Churches of Revelation and so much more. Now we understand the influence of the Roman Empire on the U.S. and also it's fate. We also clearly see the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its influence on our culture. What would the impact have been if Christian Europe would have answered the call from China to send missionaries to teach them of the one true God?”

Drive Thru History was one of the best investments I have made in history resources. The DVD's are well done and are interesting and even a bit quirky so they hold the interest of all 4 of my kids - which range from grade school to high school. The resource books are also well written and easy for the kids to read, understand and retain the information.”
Susan N., Co-op Member
LOVE this program. No matter how your child learns, I would think that the zany host and the location video that accompanies the history would help them remember and learn. Mine are very auditory learners and have thoroughly enjoyed these videos. Not only do they talk all about what they just heard for the next several days, but every so often we'll just be discussing something and someone will say "Like in the Drive Through History video about ....". We've watched them over and over. Even my husband enjoys watching them in the evening. A must have.”
Bobbi B., Co-op Member
Wonderful program that made the people in history come to life - my children loved it especially my visual learners. Thank you!”
Gail H., Co-op Member
This has been one of the most interesting history courses we have ever viewed! Even my husband, who never watches anything, wanted to see each one, along with our 20 year old. The middle school aged kids who went through the material were interested and challenged, which is major with that age group! We have also ordered the US History and are excitedly looking forward to using it in the fall! It's great to see places you are talking about and hear little known facts, especially from a Christian perspective!”
E. Moody, Co-op Member
These videos are very entertaining, historically accurate and Biblically correct! Dave Stotts is so informative, and very entertaining in each DVD. All five of our children, high school through elementary, love to watch these DVDs. We watch these videos regularly, not just for school, but for family entertainment. We learn things about each country and the facinating Biblical events that happened there. We have all the DVDs, and are waiting for more to come out! We absolutely are very happy with our purchases! If you are needing something more with your History lessons, I would highly recommend these DVDs.”
Kathy Johnson, Co-op Member
My family and I love the Drive-Thru-History videos. Dave Stouts is very funny and makes learning History fun for my kids. Once he has my children's attention then they are eager to learn. The videos are filled with information that my children are interested in learning. DTH also teaches what my children were not learning in school, that our country was founded on Christian principles. We love the videos and workbook and can't wait until they make even more.”
Holly Barkman, Co-op Member
I have so enjoyed Drive-thru-History for our Homeschool. When my teaching get's on the heavy side of lecturing, the kids look forward to seeing what Mr. Dave Stotts has to say about it. I I have to admitt, I think I enjoyed learning from these as much as, if not more than my kids. It is very light hearted yet still gets the facts out to reach a stretch of all age groups. I pray for this to become a staple in Public Schools some day as I wish I had had it growing up!”
Jenn Budrick, Co-op Member
I bought the entire package to supplement the Diana Waring history we are using. Since we've only gotten thru ancient civilizations we watched the dvds about Rome, Greece, Turkey & East meets West. We LOVE them. they are extremely relevant, interesting and of course funny with Dave Stotts. Its is a wonderful addition to what we are currently doing. I cant wait to til we get to the American studies.”
Jill R., Co-op Member
This is a wonderful program. My children watch it over and over again. To be honest, I enjoy watching it too. David Stotts presents lessons with enough humor to entertain the kids while teaching history. It also points out Christian aspects of history as well. It helps to fill in the gaps of our history program and makes the facts easy to remember. I have and will continue to highly recommend this program. We are hoping that they keep making new lessons!”
Mechele Pron, Co-op Member
I wish I had Drive-Thru-History years ago when my older kids were little! I truly love these DVDs. My kids are always asking to watch them - even on vacations. If you want a Christian, funny, entertaining, and attention-grabbing history program for your family of all ages, this is it! I am a homeschooling mom of twelve children. These DVDs work for all ages. I have learned a lot from them! It's learning at its best. My kids don't even realize they are learning, since it is so much fun.”
Candy Foote, Co-op Member
This is a great way to get kids interested in history. Stotts keeps your so interest, as he tells the tale of America. I recommended this product to all my homeschool friends.”
Minnie, Co-op Member
Drive-Thru History is incredible! The series meaningfully links history to today's events. My kids (7, 5 and 3) beg to watch it, Although it's geared for an older crowd, my little kids think Dave Stotts is hillarious! In conversation they casually refer to facts they've learned from the series. We read biographies from the library to expand their knowledge and we reference Foundations of Character qualities as we read the Bible and memorize "character" verses. I tell everyone about DTH! We'll be using it for years as the kids grow beyond merely recalling facts to understanding how the past influences us today and how public omissions of facts and misinterpretations of history handicap us as free and informed citizens. I recommend pairing this with Peter Marshall and David Manuel's "The Light and the Glory" series of books, available in versions for young children through adults.”
Kimberly A., Co-op Member
My kids ages 9 and 11 love Drive Thru History. They found it highly entertaining and at the same time they have retained a lot of information from the dvds. We all love Dave Stott, he is very funny. Thanks to Dave none of us will ever forget the story of Romulus and Remus. Both the Ancient World dvds and The American History dvds have been a fun and informative addition to our homeschool. I would recommend them for any family homeschooling or not.”
Sara, Co-op Member
I purchased Drive Thru History for the 2009-2010 school year but we decided to watch on DVD just to see if we like it. My kids (13, 9 & 7) have commented many times since, "I can't wait to watch Drive Thru History this fall for school." My 13 year old daughter says "Dave Stotts is awesome, he's my hero." To get that response from her is amazing. Well done Focus on the Family!!”
Kelley M., Co-op Member
My kids love Drive-Thru-History. It is wonderful to watch. Besides being very informative,it is also really very funny. The host Dave Stotts has a great sense of humor. We enjoy watching the program together as a family. My husband and I love how it weaves Bible History throughout the show. I would highly recommend.”
Becky B., Co-op Member
We love Drive Thru History videos. My husband and I first fell in love with them when we saw them on TBN a few years back. We learned a lot and had even more laughs. I have now purchased almost all of them now and love watching them again and again. We watch them with our kids and they enjoy them. My 6 year old has enjoyed them, but with age you tend to get more of the humor and history so I have seen my 8 year old laugh quite a bit more. We studied the Early American History this year. We were able to watch these videos and see their eyes light up as they heard about someone or something they had learned about in school. We enjoy these so much that we have referred others to these videos and not for school...for adult entertainment. They are very interesting and fun to watch. We strongly recommend these videos to anyone interested in taking a look at history through a Christian lens and laughing along the way.”
