Exploring America – History Curriculum For High School Students


Finding a good history curriculum for senior high school was one of the greatest challenges I faced when I was being homeschooled. It looked like the majority of the good history books take a look at the Civil War or World War II. What about modern history? It’s hard to find a history book from your Christian perspective about modern history.

Have you run into this problem, too? This difficulty may be overcome having a secondary school history curriculum from Notgrass Company. Exploring America by Ray Notgrass is surely an amazing curriculum that is exciting and also educational. It commences with Christopher Columbus and ends at the present time. Each day is split up into short concise lessons.

Sometimes history books apparently make the exciting events could be seen as simply boring facts, Mr. Notgrass comes with an engaging way of writing that creates the events stand out. There are also daily assignments that encourage the students to dig deeper.

Sometimes they will read a document, speech, or hymn from American Voices, the 400+ page companion book that accompany the curriculum. Other times they will search for relevant Bible verses as well as memorize verses. Writing assignments (including writing an analysis paper) are also typical of the assignments.

Students who finish the course will have three credits, one out of history, one in English, and one out of Bible. How’s that for hitting 3 birds with one stone?

This book is vital for each secondary school student and can provide them with the equipment to consider an in-depth look at American history from the Biblical perspective. If you are looking for any really good American history high school curriculum look no further. Exploring America has filled a major gap within the history curriculum for homeschoolers. Exploring America is the greatest high school curriculum for American history I have ever seen! I wish it turned out around when I is at senior high school.
