Streams of Civilization Historical Timeline
Although designed to be used alongside Streams of Civilization from Christian Liberty Press, this ready-made timeline would also be a helpful addition to any world history text. The timeline consists of 22 11"x17" looseleaf pages covering the period 750 B.C. to 2000 A.D. Textual entries on the timeline focus on people (rather than events) in two areas - general history and Bible/church history. (After 1450 A.D., general history is divided into political history, intellectual history, and art/science history. Pages are divided into 50-year segments (25-year segments after 1775 A.D.). Pages are folded in half, and come in a plastic pouch for storage when not in use.
World History is presented from a Christian perspective in this 2-volume set from Christian Liberty Press. Volume 1 provides a comprehensive overview from Creation through about 1620.Volume 2 takes us from the Age of Exploration to the present. Both volumes have been significantly revised and are now 3rd editions. The hardcover texts feature many more maps and illustrations and are now thicker; Volume 1 is now over 400 pages and Vol. 2 is over 600 pages. Each textbook chapter ends with comprehension questions, projects, vocabulary and a list of notable people. Projects include writing assignments (research papers, reports, news stories, and creative writing), research suggestions, discussion questions, art and music appreciation and more. Completing at least one project per chapter is recommended. Volume 2, in addition to more challenging reading, increases the emphasis on church history in relation to secular history.It offers no apologies for the strong conservative opinions expressed. Teacher manual packets hold a brief introduction with some teaching tips, but are primarily answer keys with answers to comprehension questions and definitions for chapter vocabulary and notable people. Test packets include one test per chapter with 20-25 questions in each. These include matching,true/false, short answer, ordering, and multiple choice. Answers are found at the end of the test packet.
