Product Description:

Note: the World History revised edition is now in color, incorporates information from the British History course and has a stronger Biblical worldview with the incorporation of "So Noted". The Teacher’s Guide has been updated to include True/False questions, Short Answer questions, etc. Students will work on one writing project per semester.

Publisher Description:

Revised and in Color! High school students will develop their Christian worldview while forming their own understanding of world history trends, philosophies, and events in James Stobaugh's examination of historical theories, terms, and concepts.

A rigorous, classical approach to history with an emphasis on analysis!

Designed for students to practice and develop their independent learning. Students will journey on a trip around the globe as they study history from creation to today in Dr. James Stobaugh's World History Set.

In World History, your student will develop an understanding of World history trends, philosophies, and events through the use of:

  • Critical thinking questions based roughly on Bloom's Taxonomy
  • Examinations of historical theories surrounding a period or topic
  • Clarified terms, concepts, and theories to be learned
  • History makers who clearly changed the course of history
  • Overviews and insights into world views
  • Stobaugh's World History Set Includes:

    World History Student Book:

    Historical content covered in this volume includes the study of Mesopotamia, the Jewish Exile, Egyptian Life, Greece, Life in Athens, Roman Life, Early Church history, Indian (South Asian) History, Persian History, Chinese History, the Middle Ages, the Crusades, the Renaissance, the Reformation, German History, the World Wars, and South Africa.

  • Course Features:

  • Designed for grades 9-12 in a one-year history course
  • Can be combined with Stobaugh's literature curriculum for an integrated history/literature course
  • For years, James Stobaugh has written homeschool curriculum, focusing primarily on the study of literature from a Christian perspective and SAT test preparation. Mr. Stobaugh has now turned his attention to history. These courses focus on general themes in a given time period and require the student to use his research, analysis, discussion and essay writing skills rather than his memorization skills. Another feature of the courses is good incorporation and discussion of Christian beliefs and ethics (particularly evident in the World History course) compared to the prevailing philosophy of the people group and time period.

    Each course has a student book and a teacher book and is divided into 34 chapters. Each chapter contains 8-15 pages in the student book, and is divided into four lessons. In the revised editions, photos and artwork are full-color. The text reads more like Mr. Stobaugh is telling the reader a story. Because of the good readability and short chapters, the course seems at first glance to be more suited for junior high students. However, Mr. Stobaugh presumes that the student will be doing outside research, not just reading the assigned pages. Daily assignments are purposely left open-ended; the student should have the time to pursue the research wherever it leads.

    As an example, Chapter 8 of the American History course covers the years from 1800 to 1820 in 8 pages of text. The first page contains a brief overview of the era, and learning objectives for the chapter. The four lessons are "A Peaceful Revolution", "An Era of Good Feelings", "History Maker: John Quincy Adams", and "Historical Debate: National Period". Assignments for each lesson are one to five research/essay questions.

    This philosophy carries over into the chapter tests; while there are some single-answer questions, the majority of the points given on the test are for answers to essay questions.

    Where possible, the Teacher Guide contains answers to the lesson assignments and chapter tests. On many essay questions, the Guide gives information which may or should be included in the student's essay. However, some questions are opinion questions; the teacher must gauge whether the student has adequately supported his answer with facts and reasons.

    To use this course successfully would require a motivated student who enjoys researching topics on his own. This is not a history book full of times, places and dates, but rather a framework from which to build a knowledge of history. ~ Bob

    I have come to love MasterBooks and their history curriculum after using them in our homeschool now for 2 years. They are thorough, well written and easy to read as a family reading time.

    Focuses on Big ideas rather than memorization of facts.

    Had the British history and she liked it
    Jennifer F on Oct 9, 2018
    Exactly what I want my student to learn...concepts not dates. She dislikes traditional history, but easily remembers ideas. Hopefully, this will work well for her.

    It was inexpensive and from a Christian perspective.
    Annie M on May 8, 2017
    It follows the time period of the Literature program so that the student receives the benefit of understanding the circumstances surrounding the time period.
    Julie T on Apr 14, 2017
    These look to be thought provoking and thorough for the student.

    We were looking for something with similar writing to the All American History series-I think we found it!

    Comprehensive yet not overwhelming, World History has the scope my daughter needs in a story format. Plus I love the author's other books.
    Denise B on Aug 18, 2016
    It appears to be a solid World History book. The layout looks well organized and promotes independent study for a high school student.

    simple to schedule
    So far (about 4 weeks in) we like this set. I am using it with 2 high school students (using 2 teachers guides and sharing a textbook) and scheduling it is simple. We also use the online video course supplement from Master Books Academy and it feels well rounded and credit worthy.

    "Daily grams" for history
    We just completed Mystery of History over 4 years for my girls. I needed a one year world historyas review before one of them takes European History next year. I bought this set thinking it would be a self-contained review without requiring much of my time since MOH was very time intensive (in a good way) for the last 4 years.

    I got what I was looking for, but it is incredibly lean for a high school course. The lessons are incredibly short (often only a page of text). The only tests are quarterly, and the daily worksheets ask about things not even covered in the text. There is a supplementary book that stretches a study of Genesis over the course of an entire year, which is discussed on Fridays (day 5 of each chapter). We aren't using that, so she does History 4 days a week and it takes her 10 minutes each day. She calls it "Daily Grams for History". I am supplementing with a Bible history text while she's doing ancient history and will need to find books later in the year just to justify the credit on a high school transcript.

    Not a thorough course
    We did two chapters and decided to switch. There was hardly any information. Reading consists of one page and then a worksheet. Worksheet may consist of one essay question which requires more reading and research on your own. No other resources are listed. So, basically you read the lesson and then the answers to the worksheet are not even in the lesson. A test consisted of 2 essay questions that were totally different from the reading. I had no idea how to answer them, much less my kids.
