From Creation to the 21st century, Exploring World History presents ancient, medieval, and modern history from the perspective of faith in God and respect for His Word. It offers a thorough survey of Western civilization with significant coverage of Latin America, Africa, and Asia. The hardcover books feature hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations.
Completing the full course provides your child with a year's high school credit in World History, English, and Bible. Depending on how fast your child reads and how much time he spends on the unit projects, he may need an average of 2-3 hours for each daily lesson. The history credit involves reading the lessons and the original documents (and answering the questions in the optional Student Review if desired). The English credit involves completing writing assignments and reading the assigned literature. The Bible credit involves reading large portions of the Bible and completing the Bible study lesson for each unit. The unit projects offer a wide variety of activities that tie into history, English, and Bible.
