U.S. History to 1877 Teacher's Manual U.S. History to 1877 with Government, American Literature, and Biblical Worldview is a one-year curriculum for high school that integrates U.S. history, government, English, and Bible (3 full-year credits). You will need to add science, math, and electives such as foreign language.

Lesson plans are written to the student for parent-guided independent work. There are 36 weeks of lessons, five days a week, with a somewhat lighter schedule on most Fridays. On Fridays, the student and parent have a conference to discuss the week's topics and review completed work.

Biblical Worldview

  • Develop a consistent Biblical worldview in the areas of theology, philosophy, biology, psychology, ethics, sociology, law, politics, economics, and history. Study Thinking Like a Christian by David Noebel and Chuck Edwards of Summit Ministrie, and Assumptions That Affect Our Lives. Includes a daily journal and projects.
  • Grow in applying God's truths to daily life through the encouragement and challenges in Growing Up Christian and Christian Character.
  • Participate in service projects chosen and/or developed by the student and the parent/teacher.

U.S. History to 1877 and Government

  • Study from early exploration to the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. Assignments include extension activities with maps, comprehension questions, and chapter tests. One semester credit. (U.S. history after 1877 is studied the following year.)
  • Study U.S. government with comprehension questions, chapter tests, and related projects. One semester credit.
  • Optional: Attempt CLEP college credit for U.S. History 1 at the end of the year. Prepare with the study guide CLEP History of the United States I (available separately).

American Literature

  • Read historical documents such as the Mayflower Compact and early political speeches.
  • Read literature written during the historical periods being studied. The primary focus is analyzing the author's worldview in light of a Biblical worldview. All the literature is fully scheduled in the lesson plans so that assigned readings coordinate with history events being studied. Assignments include questions for some of the literature as well as short answer/essay assignments. For several weeks students select reading books from a recommended list.
  • Review grammar (punctuation, capitalization, parts of speech, etc.) 5-10 minutes each day to improve the accuracy of the student's writing and assist in ACT/SAT review.
  • Optional: Attempt CLEP college credit for English at the end of the year. Prepare with the study guide CLEP College Composition (available separately).

I have really enjoyed how the lessons have each day planned out for me. The choice of books that are assigned are also very good books that I almost always enjoy. This curriculum has been a great Christ-based curriculum that has greatly impacted my spiritual life.

Josh, age 17

I have learned so much about our country and it is really neat to be able to apply what I have learned to everyday situations I see or hear about.
