American History in the World Image

High School history classes are a multi-level program of extensive interaction. Students who participate develop a clear understanding of the flow of history, including chronological relationships, geographical relationships and consequences of ideas. Students are exposed to the great writings of the era they are studying. In response to student experiential learning and discussion, Mrs. Efting will give feedback, guidance and encouragement throughout the learning process, helping students understand each applicable mode of thought, and preparing them for productive involvement in current systems, holding students’ work to either High School or Honors standards. Comments explain successes and delineate problems needing further work. Integral to this format is a substantial meta-cognitive dialogue with Mrs. Efting and other students about issues and ideas in class, and ongoing peer discussion online. They have opportunities to think critically and to interact personally with each age through discussion, presentation, activities and respectful debate.

Year III: Christianity Answers the 21st Century

10 units each for English, History, Philosophy, and 5 units Economics

World Views III explores the 20th century’s shift in its thinking away from Christianity, the effects of that shift, and Christianity’s answers to this thinking. Course highlights are: understanding modern world views through literature of the period, in-depth study of evolution versus creation arguments, causes of the Civil War and its consequences on our Constitution, study of the history of economic thought alongside the Biblical view of economics, and what we as Christians have to give as answers to the 21st century culture and how we are to live.

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.
