Creation Through the age of Discovery (6000 BC to AD 1500)
- Chronologically based, but focused more on skill development
- Meant to be a 20 to 30 minute experience every day
- World history is combined with social studies in a one-year course.
The Jr. High School student will see history come to life no matter what their pace or ability. Developed by Dr. James Stobaugh, the courses grow in difficulty with each year, preparing students for high school work. This is a comprehensive examination of history, geography, economics, and government systems. This educational set equips students to learn from a starting point of God's creation of the world and move forward with a solid biblically-based worldview.
Volume I Covers - The Fertile Crescent, Egypt, India, China, Japan, Greece, Christian history, and more.
Dr. James Stobaugh was a Merrill Fellow at Harvard and holds degrees from Vanderbilt and Rutgers universities, and Princeton and Gordon-Conwell seminaries. An experienced teacher, he is a recognized leader in homeschooling and has published numerous books for students and teachers. He and his wife Karen have homeschooled their four children since 1985.
mom2four4 Stars Out Of 5NiceOctober 27, 2017mom2fourQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I have a 6th and 7th grader that are using this curricula together. We are all enjoying the content and layout of the student book. (The teacher book is a different story, but you can read that review on the teacher book page.)
My girls enjoy the writing style and lay out of the lessons. I enjoy the discussion questions that encourage them to think about what they've just read.
There is a short test at the end of each chapter. My girls get frustrated with the tests because the vocabulary definitions are vastly different from how they worded in the chapters. I actually enjoy that because it is teaching them to understand the full meaning of a word instead of just memorizing a definition.
I think that's my favorite thing about this program. The author, I believe, really wants the students to think about what they are learning and how history impacts the present. This is more than just learning names and dates.
