Course Description: From Adam to Us Volume 2:Castles to Computers In this class, we will learn aspects from the Early Renaissance, the 1400s through the 1700s, the Age of Revolution, the Victorian Era, the 1900s, the World Wars, up unto the Twentieth Century, and current events, including computers and other current technology. The class will learn communications through daily lessons written in a narrative style and richly illustrated with color photographs and maps.
Course Objectives: Each unit includes five lessons that look at biographies, landmarks, daily life, "God's Wonders" (natural resources), and "Our World" stories (major events). Students will experience the tragic and triumphant events that shaped our world. They will get to know God’s created wonders that have a key place in the sweep of history. They will get an up-close look at landmarks made by creative people in many times and places. Students will learn how they can get a glimpse of the daily life of ordinary people through the centuries. They will meet influential people who made an impact in their own time and beyond. From Adam to us gives students the keys to engage with history, learn from history, and love history while growing to understand their place in God’s great story.
Assignments/Quizzes: There are opportunities for graded components of the course should parents decide to monitor and notate completed work, but I will not be grading. Students will be assigned weekly reading from the lessons we are discussing along with questions to answer from the lesson workbook each week. We will go over the answers each week for the questions in the student workbook and then take the unit tests. We will also go over the answers to the test together, I will allow the student to self-grade unless you let me know otherwise for your student. The only grade I will provide is a participation grade for the year that you can compile with the tests from each week if you would like to assess a grade for your student for this class.
