FROM THE TEACHER
Welcome to World History Survey. In this course, you have the awesome opportunity to study the highlights of key things that have occurred in our world from Creation all the way until the present day. This truly is a world history course, whereby we take a look at the history of civilizations and societies on every continent, except for Antarctica. Come and join the journey of investigating the amazing events, people, perspectives, movements, trends, and worldviews that shape our present day world. Emphasis is placed on making connections from past to present as well as analyzing various perspectives and sources. Throughout the course you are given formal opportunities to go deeper and look further into things that interest you personally. You are challenged along the way to consider the Biblical worldview of history and analyze the many viewpoints, whether Biblical or not, that have shaped our world. At certain points in the course, you even have the freedom to determine what areas of the world you want to study further. So again, come and join us on this journey of seeing God’s providential hand in the unfolding of His story throughout the history of the world.
The Enriched Virtual Program is a really great opportunity to get to know your teacher and your classmates better! We meet for class weekly and review the week’s material as well as study for upcoming assessments. We pray together and interact with discussion questions. We often view video clips together and discuss them, and sometimes we even take virtual field trips! I would be very pleased for any interested student to join us as we journey through World History together!
If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
What I really enjoy for this class was that because there is so much information that we learn during the week that actually remembering it all can be quite difficult but with the live class it will reinforce any concepts that hasn’t quite made it yet.
This course was amazing, there was a good balance of homework, where was a lot of class participation, and it was easy to voice your opinions.
This is my first year with Northstar and I seriously like the format. It’s significantly better than any curriculum I’ve done before.
