History of the World in Christian Perspective Student
From a conservative, biblical point of view, this course gives students an overview of history from the beginning of creation through the opening of the 21st century. The full color textbook also features key facts and sidebars with interesting information. Section and chapter reviews are also included.
From the beginning of the world to today’s modern way of life, use History of the World to show your child that “the most important part of a culture is how people relate to God.” This text uses a narrative form to escort your child through the halls of history discussing the Egyptians and their pyramids, Rome and its empire, Johann Guttenberg and his printing press, America and the Industrial Era, the World Wars, and more. This text uses bold terms, timelines, and detailed descriptions to study many famous wars, battles, and explorations throughout the world. Review questions for each section and chapter help your child remember what he’s studied. Help your child learn about the past from a Christian perspective and plan for the future in light of Christian principles.
History is important. As children learn about past events and how such things relate to current issues, it helps them to understand societies and become better citizens. Abeka’s history courses present history from a biblical perspective with a conservative, patriotic view. As students study our country, the world, as well as forms of government and citizenship, they develop a deeper understanding of history and learn about heroes showing bravery, courage, and diligence. Geography is also interwoven into the lessons, so students can make connections to the history they are studying (some grade levels have a separate workbook and answer key for map activities).
Taking a traditional approach, softcover Student Textbooks are in full color and written in an understandable format for each age group. Tests and quizzes are available to provide assessments. Grades 1-4 pivot toward the study of America and geography, giving students a solid foundation of American history and the great people who have helped shape our country in a positive manner. Grades 5-8 go into more detail about both world and American history along with geography, as students learn about the Eastern Hemisphere in grade 5 and the Western Hemisphere in grade 6. Grade 7 is an overview of world history and grade 8 is a United States history course. High school courses cover geography, world history, US history, American government, and economics.
There are several components to aid in the teaching of these courses. Teacher Editions have reduced-sized student pages, along with comprehension or discussion questions and detailed information on teaching the lesson. Curriculum Lesson Plans are (lesson plan) guides for the teacher and include enrichment activities. Answer Keys to the student textbook provide answers to Section and Chapter Review questions. Several resources are also available for grades 4-8 as support materials: My State Notebook (grade 4), Nation Notebook (grades 4-6), Nifty-Fifty Flashcards (grades 4-8), and Eastern (grades 5-8) and Western (grades 6-8) Hemisphere Map Skill Cards. Novels and biographies are suggested as additional reading material in certain grade levels. Abeka provides a solid, grade leveled study of history that incorporates a biblical view with a focus on American patriotism. Students will see God’s hand in history and benefit from learning about past events so they can impact the future in a useful way.
