    Category Description for Diana Waring History Revealed!:

    Diana Waring is once again publishing her History Revealed! program and we are thrilled! Diana Waring embodies the concept that learning should be alive for students, enjoyable, and memorable in both approach and content. Her foundational perspective is that Gods redemptive presence is visible throughout all ages and all history. The goal of History Revealed! is for students to discover history from a Biblical worldview, and to explore history through a curriculum that honors your God-given design. This means learning and expressing what youve learned in a way that best fits you and who you are.

    It is designed to guide students through a study of world history from a Biblical perspective. The curriculum does this by providing numerous learning opportunities which include: reading, discussing, researching, music, art, architecture, science projects, cooking, journalism, drama, mapping, graphic design, vocabulary and more. Designed as a multi-learning style program, the units in these courses are based on a four-week cycle through the four basic learning styles, and each course includes 9 units. All the activities and projects during each of these weeks utilize one of the four different learning styles feeler, thinker, sensor, and intuitor making this curriculum easy to use with any child, teenager or even adult who wants to study history from a Biblical perspective. Extensive lists of books (including descriptions) help students discover and explore history. This series gives evidence that history the way the Bible tells it is correct, and is divided into 3 periods: Creation to Christ, Resurrection to Revolution, and Napoleon to the Korean War. From students to teachers, high school to college-bound, professors to 10-year olds, the praise and acclaim for this series is very widespread; crossing not only state lines but also international borders.

    The Teacher Guides feature suggested monthly schedules, activity explanations, teacher helps, weekly assessment suggestions, and topic suggestions for research and reading. Small-format student pages are provided in their entirety, to help keep you and your student on the same page. Icons help to mark teaching tips, discussion questions, and opportunities to engage students spiritually. Each icon is accompanied by a shaded box with instruction and/or information. An Appendix contains maps with the answers to workbook mapping activities. All other materials which were previously found in the appendix are in the student pages and small format in the teacher edition.

    The Student Manuals contain introductory articles for each unit to provide an overview of that period of history, lots of options for hands-on projects and topics for further research, book lists organized by age group, discussion questions, and self-evaluation questions at the end of each phase in every lesson.

    People who have had the opportunity to hear Diana Waring speak live at a homeschooling convention have experienced an amazing thing - theyve told me so. Its impossible to not be drawn in by the enthusiasm, the incredible depth of knowledge, love for the subject, and the dynamic style which characterizes Dianas seminars and workshops. That same experience can be at your very finger-tips with the What in the World? CDs. Diana presents the history of the world in 3 different volumes. These 4-disc sets describe people and events based upon archeology and research. Through listening to her recordings you will hear and envision Gods influence throughout the periods of history. These CDs correspond to the curriculum and tracks are rearranged to align with Usshers chronology. Although central to Dianas curriculum, the CDs can also be used as a supplement to other history programs or for the history buff who just wants to informally learn a little more.

    Test Kits cover the material taught in Phase 1 of each unit. Each test includes matching, essay and short answer questions.

    New for 2016 are Essentials Packs. These include: Student Manual, Teacher Guide, What in the World CD Set, and Test Kit plus three NEW components: Rubric Set, Quick Start Guide, and Basic Lesson Plan. Designed to give you a jump start in the prepping, planning, and grading aspects of these courses, these new components are attractive and easy to use. The Quick Start Guide provides an overview of History Revealeds four phases: Introduction, Exploration, Hands-on, and Expression as well as an introduction to package components. The Basic Lesson Plan has two options 3-Day (1.5 2 hour sessions) and 5-Day (30-60 minutes sessions) providing a daily plan for each. The Rubrics Set is the crowning gem. One of the hardest aspects of a nontraditional learning approach is knowing how to establish grades. This set provides guidelines for students (to know what to focus on) as well as parents/teachers. With rubrics for research projects, linguistic presentations, cultural/science projects, art projects, music presentations (and more), youll feel comfortable and capable of giving a fair and encouraging grade for all aspects of these courses. Diana Warings multi-sensory and biblical worldview approach to world history has been loved and appreciated for years. These Essential Packs have added a whole new layer of user-friendliness.

    Additional resources that complement the program include: True Tales CDs, Digging Deeper CDs and an Elementary Activity Book. True Tales are 3-CD sets which allow you to experience a guided tour of Ancient, Medieval, and Modern History as Diana Waring skillfully tells fascinating stories of people and places of long ago.

    The Digging Deeper CDs present facts from history and specifically church history. For younger students, there is an Elementary Activity Book. A fun activity book, for grades K-4, parallels units for older students, making the study of history easily accomplished with multiple children at different grade levels. Bursting with pictures to color, maps and mazes, crafts, science experiments, recipes, crossword puzzles, word scrambles, coded messages, somewhat silly songs to sing, goofy games, and many more fun things, parents and children alike will greatly appreciate history set at a simpler level. All instructions for activities are included right in the book. Much of the teaching for this book is found in the audio set, What in the World?, which the author suggests you use to gain an overview in your study. When and what to listen to is listed in the Teacher Guide and Student book, but you could probably figure this part out for yourself and eliminate the need for the additional purchase.

    We offer packages of all resources for each time period in several different bundles as well as book packs of recommended literature.

    I'm looking forward to incorporating these CDs with our study of Ancient Civilizations and the Bible this year with my youngest.
    Heidi M on May 29, 2020
    My Christian homeschool curriculum isn't tying Biblical events into the world history timeline like I would like. I'm hoping this fills that gap! Also, I have an auditory learner who will enjoy listening to history before she "has" to read about it in a textbook.

    Love how Diana Waring dives into history

    I use this alongside the bible , reinforcing the lesson.
    Keisha K on Jun 12, 2017
    I should have ordered with the curriculum but at the time I purchased the books I didn't know that it would be such an essential missing piece. I hope I receive it quickly, I'm really excited.

    I will be using this as part of our World History study.

    I have this set on cassette tape but finding a high quality cassette player is becoming difficult so I chose to get the CD version.
    Gina J on Oct 2, 2015
    I have used this in the past many years ago, but need to update my cassettes to CDs now.

    Very Satisfied, but a small warning
    We are enjoying this much more than we thought we would. I kind of wish she had a better attitude towards evolutionists. We are new earth believers but I want my kids to respect others’ beliefs even if they politely disagree. She isn’t rude or anything, but just kind of has a sarcastic tone when it comes to evolutionary beliefs.

    Diana Waring's passion for history does truly come alive in her recordingsWe have both Vol 1 + 2 of her cassettes and have just purchased her extended and revised cd sets (part 1 2 + 3) before these wear outInitially we sat down with a fold out commercial timeline to pinpoint people times and places but this got too difficult to keep up with We found it better to either listen to this presentation as a stand-alone or to break it up into sound bites write down the key facts and then take those to the timeline encyclopedia or bible for further information and discussionSo both methods still promoted the desired results - a love of learning and an overview of world history For a not-keen-at-all-on-history-homeschool-mum this drew me in and had me going 'ah I get it" "did they really know each other?" It is a far cry from the disjointed war-oriented units I did at school and oh so easy!The younger ones (2-5) listen in to a certain extent but it is certainly no problem to back track a bit and listen to a section again if they interrupt too much or stop it all together and pick it up on another day For that freedom alone it is worth every cent! Our eldest (10) has even asked to take the 2 sets to her room and has listened to them back-to-back over a few days!So thumbs up from me and I hope you enjoy Diana's "What in the World is Going on Here?" yourself
