Sonlight Core 300

Assuming that 16-year-olds have a strong grasp on world history, Core 300 focuses less on events and people and more on the ideas and philosophies that shaped them. The 20th century is the focus, as students look closely at World War II, the Great Depression, the Cold War, and much more.

The Visual History of the Modern Worldis the main text, and offers pictures, timelines, and more in a panoramic image of the last century. Biographies, novels, and classics supplement.Books likeKnow What You BelieveandMere Christianityare intended to show students the practical implications of a Christian worldview, the goal of any truly Christian education.

Please Note: Sonlight Curriculum does not sell their materials to Exodus Books. We carry many of the same titles, and are often able to obtain used copies of books they publish. The following is culled from their 2013 websiteand includes much of their selection, though it is not comprehensive, nor is it in any sort of curricular order. For a complete listing, visit the Sonlight Curriculum website.
