Exploring World History is a high school world history curriculum combining world history, world literature, and Bible. It helps high school students gain a fuller understanding of the past as they read the history narrative, read classic literature, complete writing assignments, and study what the Bible says about issues and ideas in world history. Exploring World History provides historical overview lessons along with focused lessons on key events, concepts, and people. It also includes surveys of daily life and culture.
This curriculum presents history from the perspective of faith in God and respect for His Word. Each unit includes a Bible study highlighting spiritual issues related to history. It is comprehensive, giving students an overview of world history from Creation to the 21st century.
The history section involves reading the lessons and the original documents (and answering the questions in the optional Quiz and Exam Book if desired). The English section involves studying the grammar points (four times per week), completing the writing assignments, and reading the assigned books, as well as the poems, hymns, and short stories in In Their Words. The Bible credit involves answering the Bible Study Questions (mentally, verbally, or on paper) and reading the Bible study lesson for each unit. A considerable portion of the first third of the curriculum is Bible history. Students should expect to spend about three hours per day on it—more or less depending on reading speed.
