  • Course Description

What better way to begin high school history than at the Beginning?  While History doesn't repeat itself, it does rhyme and we can learn to see themes that cross across centuries and millennia and apply those to current World situations.   This class will be taught from a Christian WorldView and this course, more than the others, will feature Biblical passages.

Some of the events covered include the Creation; Early Civilizations; Egypt; Syria; Israel; Greek versus Persians, Diaspora; Roman Republic; Roman Empire; and the Messiah.  While studying these subjects, we will use original sources, maps, and literature.

  • Classwork / Homework

Students will engage in presentations/lectures, learn note taking, class discussion, independent study, classical literature, original texts, memorization, and even food, to use the past as a lens to understand our current world. Students will print homework assignments from our Google classroom to complete weekly assignments.   Each student will also keep a binder of all notes, maps, homework, timeline, handouts, for a final grade.

Approximate homework: 2 hours
