DESCRIPTION: In this course, the student will delve into our country's remarkable history starting with the American Natives and continuing into the 20th century. We will have ample opportunity to explore the overall story of America through the eyes of faith. Students will gain a rich understanding of our nation's past by placing emphasis on primary documents and speeches, reading the historical narrative presented in the text, creating a digital timeline, studying what the Bible says about issues and ideas in history, and completing writing assignments. These assignments will be focused on the historical, political, economic, and sociological events which influenced the development of the United States and the resulting impact they have had on world history. One of our tasks will be to see the story from the eyes of those who lived it as we exercise our critical thinking skills to judge, assess, and evaluate conflicting viewpoints on US history. Finally, our discussions will revolve around events, issues, and policies on the national level, especially involving the federal government, as well as developments in American culture. The text, "Exploring America", presents history from the perspective of faith in God and respect for His Word.

COURSE DESCRIPTION: 

Latin is not a dead language! In fact, Latin is the root of most of our English words. These courses will use the well-known Form Latin series by Memoria Press. The books are a wonderful grammar first approach and is ideal for all beginners grades 6th grade and up. They utilize a logical, systematic manner to enable the student to master the content.  Memoria Press states, “The uniqueness of the Form Series lies in two features: (1) Commitment to the trivium model of teaching grammar systematically in order to facilitate retention and understanding, rather than topically, to facilitate translation; and (2) Extensive workbook exercises to ensure skills mastery and rapid recognition of inflected forms.  Students will enjoy learning Latin grammar as well as listening and speaking. The Roman culture will also be a focus of this learning experience. Class and homework time will be devoted to the National Latin Exam and students are encouraged to take the test in March.
