History is best understood through the dual lenses of dramatic story and godly wisdom. In the first of these bundled courses, veteran history teacher Dave Raymond gives a comprehensive history of the United States by applying a Christian worldview to the characters, events, theology, literature, art, and religious beliefs of the nation. It is an engaging class for Middle School and High School students.

In the next exciting course of this history cycle, Dave Raymond turns his attention to the period of Modernity and the maturity of Western civilization.

FAQ
Calculating High School Credit for History:
 
HSLDA recommends spending approximately 150 hours on a subject to qualify for high school credit.  This is how Dave Raymond’s classes generally break down to achieve that credit.  Some students will spend more time in some areas and some will spend less, but there is clearly enough different types of work to qualify for full high school credit:
 
american history credit chart
 
* The reader includes 372 pages of original historical materials.  It increases in length as the year progresses.  For example, Part 1 is 150 pages and Part 2 is 222 pages.  If additional reading is desired for older students, we include recommendations for that.
**If a parent desires to do two or more thesis papers for older students, that is perfectly acceptable and will only increase the amount of time spent in the class.
 
Modernity:

* The reader includes 400 pages of original historical materials.  It increases in length as the year progresses.  For example, Part 1 is 150 pages and Part 2 is 250 pages.  If additional reading is desired for older students, we include recommendations for that.
