$65 p/mo
Geography & Missions – Mapping the World by HEART Image

In-depth study of geography and intensive map memorization skills will prepare the student for the project of generating a US map and a world map. This class will be “hands-on.” Christian Missions will be a primary focus.

  1. Cartography Skills
  2. Geography/Geographer’s language acquisition
  3. Christian Missions Perspective

Content & Objectives: After completing this year, the student will be able to…

  • Gain an understanding of God’s Heart for the World and its people.

  • Be able to decode the information on any map.
  • Be able to use atlas indices to find locations and other geographical information.

World Affairs
$65 p/mo
World Affairs Image

World Affairs is a social studies opportunity: Students will be learning about geography, history, archaeology, people, places, science, nature, and art…across time, continents and cultures… through the pages of Smithsonian magazine. Students who take this course will be reading one Smithsonian magazine article weekly. Each student will generate his/her own question about each article, research the answer to that question (using a reliable source), and summarize findings in a formal paragraph.

More advanced students may work toward a 5-paragraph essay which will include an introduction and conclusion. Class time will be spent discussing students’ findings. We’ll learn from much more from each other each week than was originally addressed in the original article. Additionally, students will define new vocabulary within each article and plot an icon for their article on a world timeline.

World Affairs provides expository essay writing experience: Students will be evaluated on content of their paragraphs, the completeness of their research, and their contribution to discussions more than on the quality of their writing. Nevertheless, students will find that their writing skills will vastly improve as they practice summarizing their research in their own words, writing proper topic/clincher relationships in paragraphs, inserting dress-ups and varied sentence openers, and appropriately referencing sources using MLA guidelines.

Objectives: Students will:

  • reinforce their knowledge of God’s Truth as revealed through happenings in our world. -read articles on matters related to past and present world affairs.
  • explore personal areas of interest related to each article.
  • complete further research in those areas of interest (using interview, internet, book, and periodical sources).
  • understand how to evaluate the reliability of sources. -summarize their research in single paragraph or 5-paragraph, expository essay format.
  • improve essay writing and formatting skills (thesis, topic sentence, topic-clincher relationship, in-text citations, formatting quotations, works cited page, etc…)
  • build background knowledge on a variety of topics presented through Smithsonian magazine articles.
  • plot icons of events studied on a timeline of world events.
  • participate in open discussion of articles (sharing thoughts, research, discoveries, opinions…) -develop an interest in magazine journalism through reading motivating and interesting Smithsonian magazine articles.
World Views of the Western World Year I

World Views of the Western World Year I Image

World Views of the Western World Year I takes the student from the ancient civilizations of the Hebrews and the Greeks up to the Middle Ages while reading the Bible and classic Greek and Roman literature and learning Greek and Roman philosophy.

World Views of the Western World Year III
$80 p/mo
World Views of the Western World Year III Image

World Views of the Western World Year III explores the 20th century’s shift away from Christianity in its thinking, the effects of that shift, and Christianity’s answers. There are six main units in this study. Unit 1 studies main categories of world view while reading and examining corresponding literature. Unit 2 does an in depth study of evolution versus creation arguments. Unit 3 examines philosophical thought through history. Unit 4 views the causes of the Civil War and its consequences on our Constitution. Unit 5 is a study of the history of economic thought alongside the Biblical view of economics. Unit 6 examines what we as Christians have to give as answers to the 21st century culture and how we are to live. Areas of Study: World Views of the Western World II integrates history, political theory and American Government, literature, composition, art, Bible, and philosophy.

World Views of the Western World Year II
$80 p/mo
World Views of the Western World Year II Image

World Views of the Western World II employs a unified study of academics—world history, literature, Bible, theology, American 171 Government, art and music— while exploring the foundation and formation of Western civilization developed under the framework of 172 biblical principles. This course is second in a series of three high school classes, each being equivalent to between 35 and 45 high school units. Students, though, are not required to take all three classes. These three rigorous 34-week studies of Western civilization 174 follow changes in philosophies through time and their implications and consequences to society. This course aims at equipping 175 students to meet the questions the culture is asking them about what they believe and why it is relevant in the post-modern world in 176 which we live. World views provide the fact-based background and knowledge to analyze the problems facing the world today. 177 Classics are a primary focus and are studied with an eye to understanding the world view that influenced their creation.

Each class uses a syllabus containing thoughtful questions and information for each section of study, challenging students to think and 180 reflect on the material before the class meeting. Class discussion allows the student to share ideas and for the teacher to ensure each 181 student has correctly understood key concepts. Instead of tests, students are given instruction for forming what they learn into written 182 words, a profitable challenge, because one has to understand a topic well in order to write about it.

Course Description: World Views of the Western World Year II: The Grandeur of Christianity and the Revolutionary Age takes the 205 student from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance and Reformation and the American, French, and Russian revolutions. While 206 reading original documents from the Reformation through the period of our nation’s founding, students come to understand why we 207 can confidently say our country has a Christian foundation. This culminates in comparing the beliefs behind the French and Russian 208 revolutions with those of the American Revolution.

Recommended Course: 10th grade +

Economics & American Government
$80 p/mo
Economics & American Government Image

Course Content: Economics and American Government, will focus on developing a clear understanding and increasing skills in working with or controlling a broad spectrum of governmental and economic systems. A clear history of both American Government and major Economic thought will be incorporated into discussion and applied to analysis of current issues. This course will fulfill HS requirements for both American Government/Civics and Economics coursework. Honors students will complete activities for all categories in both areas of study. If possible we will also expose students to real life governmental and economic experiences (superior court, council or congressional meetings, visits to stock or commodity exchanges or the Federal Reserve, etc). As the teacher of record, the parent can expect to discuss the ideas and materials we cover in class, with your student at home.

Honors credit: Honors credit is available for this class. Honors courses are generally valued more highly in transcript GPA calculations because they are more demanding. Students who request honors work will be held to a higher standard, both for effort in class and the depth of thoughtful analysis in commentaries and other submissions. Please let Mrs. Efting know, immediately, if you will be doing honors work.
