Exploring High School World History

Course Description:

C.S. Lewis aptly tells us that “History is a story written by the finger of God.” In this highly interactive high school level course, students will study the history of humanity from Creation through the twentieth century.  Students will thoroughly examine the origins and influence of Western Civilization as well as coverage of world history in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. With an emphasis on primary sources, students will explore the people, places, and events of all the major civilizations as well as focus on how our Creator has shaped history for His purposes. Students will be expected to complete weekly written homework assignments, regular presentations, and a project for each semester.
