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  • Read historical documents such as the Mayflower Compact and early political speeches.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).

Benjamin Franklin

ISBN: 9780486290737

Blessed with enormous talents and the energy and ambition to go with them, Franklin was a statesman, author, inventor, printer, and scientist. He helped draft the Declaration of Independence and later was involved in negotiating the peace treaty with Britain that ended the Revolutionary War. He also invented bifocals, a stove that is still manufactured, a water-harmonica, and the lightning rod.

Franklin's extraordinary range of interests and accomplishments are brilliantly recorded in his Autobiography, considered one of the classics of the genre. Covering his life up to his prewar stay in London as representative of the Pennsylvania Assembly, this charming self-portrait recalls Franklin's boyhood, his determination to achieve high moral standards, his work as a printer, his experiments with electricity, his political career, his experiences during the French and Indian War, and more. Related in an honest, open, unaffected style, this highly readable account offers a wonderfully intimate glimpse of the Founding Father sometimes called "the wisest American."

Unabridged Dover (1996) republication of the text established by John Bigelow (first published by J. B. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia, 1868).

Frederick Douglass

ISBN: 9780486284996

Former slave, impassioned abolitionist, brilliant writer, newspaper editor and eloquent orator whose speeches fired the abolitionist cause, Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) led an astounding life. Physical abuse, deprivation and tragedy plagued his early years, yet through sheer force of character he was able to overcome these obstacles to become a leading spokesman for his people.

In this, the first and most frequently read of his three autobiographies, Douglass provides graphic descriptions of his childhood and horrifying experiences as a slave as well as a harrowing record of his dramatic escape to the North and eventual freedom.

Published in 1845 to quell doubts about his origins-since few slaves of that period could write-the Narrative is admired today for its extraordinary passion, sensitive and vivid descriptions and storytelling power. It belongs in the library of anyone interested in African-American history and the life of one of the country's most courageous and influential champions of civil rights.

Unabridged Dover (1995) republication of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave, first published by The Anti-Slavery Office, Boston, 1845. New introductory Note. Preface by abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison. "Letter from Wendell Phillips, Esq."

William Bradford

ISBN: 9780486452609

The most important and influential source of information about the Pilgrims and Plymouth Colony, this landmark account was written between 1630 and 1647. It vividly documents the Pilgrims' adventures: their first stop in Holland, the harrowing transatlantic crossing aboard the Mayflower, the first harsh winter in the new colony, and the help from friendly Native Americans that saved their lives.

No one was better equipped to report on the affairs of the Plymouth community than William Bradford. Revered for his patience, wisdom, and courage, Bradford was elected to the office of governor in 1621, and he continued to serve in that position for more than three decades. His memoirs of the colony remained virtually unknown until the nineteenth century; lost during the American Revolution, they were discovered years later in London and published after a protracted legal battle. The current edition, rendered into modern English and with an introduction by Harold Paget, remains among the most readable books from seventeenthcentury America.

Dover (2006) republication of Bradford's History of the Plymouth Settlement, 1608-1650, Rendered into Modern English by Harold Paget, originally published by E. P. Dutton and Co., New York, 1920.

Christian Overman

ISBN: 9780974342573

Are you aware of the underlying assumptions that shape your values and behavior? Have you given much thought to how your assumptions about what's "really real" influence your daily actions?

We often underestimate the importance of presuppositions that lie behind the values and behavior of ourselves and others. Like an iceberg floating in the ocean with just ten percent visible and ninety percent below the surface, we sometimes lose sight of the fact that words and actions are first shaped by beliefs that lie deep within the reaches of an inner concept of reality called a worldview.

Going beyond values and behavior to examine the underlying beliefs and assumptions that shape one's worldview is what this book is all about. Examining worldview assumptions is critically important for understanding the times and the culture in which we live. Assumptions That Affect Our Lives has helped thousands to make a difference in the way they live, by making a difference in the way they think.

ISBN: 9780805438963

From TV news to public school classroom, secular ideas are presented as "the way to think" - sophisticated and scientific, contemporary and aware. Yet some Christians buy into this way of thinking because they don't know how in-touch the biblical view of the world actually is.

In the pages of this journal, you'll explore ideas that will help you discover for yourself a biblical worldview. Each daily session will be an eye-opening experience that gives hope, meaning and a greater understanding of how God fits into every part of your life.

The study is designed to build confidence in the reality of a biblical worldview and based on the book, Thinking Life a Christian, this interactive journal:

  • Walks a student through the Christian worldview of law, biology, theology, psychology, politics, philosophy, sociology, economics, history, and ethics
  • Gives an overview of each subject, poses questions, cites Scriptures, and provides plenty of space for students to write answers and observations
  • Offers a guided course of study - 5 lessons per week for each of 12 weeks.

Thinking Like a Christian make it clear that biblical Christianity is the real alternative to the virtual thinking of our times.

Ann Judson

ISBN: 978052344217

In October 1810 a twenty-year-old girl in the quiet New England town of Bradford wrote the following words in her journal: 'If nothing in providence appears to prevent, I must spend my days in a heathen land. I am a creature of God, and He has an undoubted right to do with me, as seems good in His sight. . . He has my heart in His hands, and when I am called to face danger, to pass through scenes of terror and distress, He can inspire me with fortitude, and enable me to trust in Him. Jesus is faithful; his promises are precious. Were it not for these considerations. I should sink down with despair. . .'

Ann Hasseltine had received a proposal of marriage from Adoniram Judson, who was shortly to leave for Asia as one of America's first oversea missionaries. And thus commenced one of the great drama of church history - a saga of love, courage, suffering, and perseverance.

In this biography Ann is allowed to speak for herself. Sharon James has skillfully woven together extracts from her Memoir and other first-hand accounts with linking narrative in a way that brings Ann's story alive for today and is a powerful testimony to the love, grace, and faithfulness of God.

Get a healthy dose of reality.

From TV news to public school classroom, secular ideas are presented as "the way to think" - sophisticated and scientific, contemporary and aware. Even though they're infected with an array of false assumptions. Yet Christians too easily succumb because they don't understand how remarkably reasonable it is to view the world from a biblical perspective.

Designed to build a young person's assurance that a Bible-based worldview makes sense, and drawn from the popular seminars by Summit Ministries of Colorado Springs, Thinking Like a Christian:

  • Explains the Christian worldview of subjects as diverse as law, biology, theology, psychology, politics, philosophy, sociology, economics, history, and ethics
  • Builds a student's confidence in confronting alternative worldviews
