Subject: History

Who’s buried in Grant’s Tomb? You can’t fully answer that question without some knowledge of history. Our grandparents and great-grandparents are part of a story that stretches back to the beginning of time. So are we. This is our story, and it’s also the story still being spun by a collision between the wisdom of God and billions of people who think they don’t need Him.

Learning history allows us to understand the events of our own time, and to live through those events with a more accurate and mature perspective. It teaches students one of the links between all of the other kinds of knowledge they learn, and their own origin. History is where we see that the things taught in textbooks like math and language are not dull and pointless, but pieces of a living body of knowledge that is still being written and explored.

Lower grade students listen to narratives from the four volumes of Story of the World, over a four-year cycle, along with map work, comprehension questions, and related readings and hands-on projects.

Upper grade students keep a notebook that they will use to study for unit tests. They will be graded on test results, participation in the classroom discussion, and occasional written assignments.
