Category Description for Streams of Civilization:

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.

Category Description for Veritas History Programs:

Instead of isolating Bible and Christian history from what was happening in the rest of the world, the folks at Veritas aim to incorporate it. They offer four different history time periods (each aimed at a different grade level and designed to take one school year) which take students from creation to the present. The program originally had three parts: teacher's manual, history cards (an absolutely essential element of the curriculum) and a memory song on audio CD. The song is sung by a woman with a pleasant voice at varying tempos and is designed as a type of auditory time line. The history cards are fantastic! They have many interesting facets (the more you study them, the more you learn). The cards from the various time periods are color coded and numbered - there are 32 cards in each pack. If the cards also relate to Bible history they have another color and another number. Each card has a picture (usually in full color) representing what it is about. For example, the card for Creation has a reproduction of the Creation of the sun and moon from the Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo. Many of the other pictures on the other cards are famous paintings as well. Each card has a

I will be teaching a high school class using this book as a base. It will provide an overview of ancient world history without all the other requirements such as literature, writing, research etc. We want to spin off the foundation set in this book and move into assignments that will gradually prepare students to enter their projects into the National History Day competition.

We wanted an overall World History curric to check the high school box, even though my son has read about history extensively. This was a good match.

This book is versatile as it can be used alone or in conjunction with other sources including living books. It is bible based and serves perfect as the stepping stone to deeper waters in biblical history.

BEST ANSWER: Per the publisher: ; the support materials from the previous edition of the Streams of Civilization Vol 1 would not be compatible with a newer edition, or vice versa. There were enough changes to the layout of the information of the book to effectively make it a new title compared to the old edition (the information would not have changed, of course. What might have been Unit 3 in a previous edition might now be Unit 5, for example).
Is this third edition a hardcover book?
A shopper on Jul 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I bought a copy last year and it is a hardcover book.

I first used this book for my oldest child who was in 6th grade at the time My 1st grader listened along and we all learned a lot from this book It is recommended for grades 9-10 and I would agree with this if you want your child to read it themselves My youngest child is going to be in 9th grade next year and I'm glad I saved this book We will use it again They give extra activities and books before each chapter You can do them or not The book itself is fine without them The things we chose to do I found all of the needed resources at the library or we already had them The only negative I have heard is that the pictures are all in black and white but this really never bothered us I have never used the tests so I have no comment on them

I purchased the entire line of products and have been quite pleased My daughter hated history before we started using these materials She is 13 now and has loved history since we started these books It is a very thorough and complete history curriculum The time line is helpful but not necessary Each chapter has a list of suggested activities/assignments to go with it They range from art projects to oral reports to written papers and many things in between It could easily be used to create your own unit studies Everything is presented in a detailed and interesting way Very thought provoking and accurate It does discuss darwinism versus creationism but is handled quite well and is a great starting point for emphasizing your faith and finding out where your child is in theirs Overall this is a great buy!

This book was wonderful! My 4th grader and I learned together side by side! This was a great book to share and we WILL use this book over and over! I can't wait to see what we discover when we turn the page! I would reccommend this book no matter what curriculum you use!
