Quality academics, Christian worldview (Anabaptist) and ease of use come together in this cost-effective curriculum. A primary focus in the CLE Social Studies is to prepare students for a life of service to God through the Church, Community and Great Commission. Gods sovereignty and love for His people are evident along with the two-kingdom concept of separation between Church and State. In the CLE scope and sequence, first and second grade Social Studies are considered supplemental for students who need additional work with language arts skills (comprehension and writing). Beginning in grade 3 through grade 8, a textbook provides the heart of instruction with two options available for teaching the course: textbook with LightUnits method providing independent student learning or textbook alone method with discussion questions and assessment of learning through student interaction). Please note, the textbook is required for both options.
If utilizing the Light Units with the Textbooks option, the units function as study guides with daily textbook readings and matching Light Unit activities. The publisher recommends the Textbook and LightUnit method in individualized settings. High School courses consist of ten self-study LightUnits. There is no textbook at these levels.
Available components vary by level; see specific grades for more information.

Depending on the grade level, there are two Teacher Guide options available: the textbook method only Teacher Guide and the Teacher Guide for those using the Textbook and LightUnit method.
