NOTE ABOUT GRADING:

DESCRIPTION:

† Contains distinctly Christian content

High School Levels meet twice a week and finish the book in a semester  

This course will cover Volume 1 of Mystery of History.  

Topics covered:

Creation to the Resurrection

REQUIRED RESOURCES:

Mystery of History Volume I - Second Edition

ISBN 978-1-892427-29-8

Please note:  

There is a new third edition out, but we are not able to view the book to find out how close of a match it is.  Our quizzes and lessons are based on SECOND EDITION.  

We highly recommend looking for a SECOND EDITION copy to use this year so you are not frustrated trying to match up.  There are reasonable copies available used. 

We've seen mixed reports of how close of a match the new third edition is to second.  It states on the Mystery of History site that it is a close match, but also that many activities have been updated.  If you try to use a third edition book, YOU will need to figure out how to adjust it and it may or may not match up perfectly.  

First edition is NOT a close match and CANNOT be used.

Credit for this class

With the class, online homework, and an average amount of reading and projects you as a parent assign, this book would be about 1/2 a credit.  We are offering it as a semester class so you could take two semester classes to equal a full history credit.

If you assigned more extra reading to your student outside the structured class, you COULD make it into a 1 credit class.

It is up to each PARENT to assign any supplemental reading and activities for your student.  There are reading suggestions in the Companion Guide.  That may help you find additional books from your local library.

Typically, a ONE CREDIT class would put in 120-180 hours during a school year, with the average being around 150.  Use this as a guide to how much time your child is spending on this class.

The parent grading allows you to customize how your own family uses this class.
