More than just a history curriculum, each course might well serve as a unit study with its coverage of history, geography, cultures, Bible, Bible history, and the fine arts coupled with plenty of work in language arts and even some science.
Each course is presented in nine units with four, weeklong lessons or phases per unit. Each of the four phases reflects one of four learning style preferences (based on Myers Briggs learning styles).
On top of learning styles, the curriculum incorporates methods that teach to the three learning modalities: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic (movement or hands-on learning).
[This] isnt your typical program. It isnt about memorizing names, dates, and events. Rather, its about seeing the hand of God through history, the shaping of cultures and people. The emphasis is on learning in ways that engage the students interest so that they grasp the big picture and broad outlines of history.
