United States History

United States History is a chronological study of the major events in U.S. history, from the culture of the Native Americans to the early days of the Trump presidency. The course helps students see the past through the corrective lens of a biblical worldview, giving special attention to the rise and growth of secularism. It leads students to propose solutions to social problems, make informed decisions about local, state, and national issues, and to evaluate people, events, and movements from a biblical worldview.

    How We Teach United States History

    Analyzing Primary and Secondary Sources

    Students are led to do history, not just read about it. The course will require them to interpret primary sources, drawing and combining reasonable inferences from both primary and secondary sources to build an understanding of complex issues.

    Evaluating Historical Perspectives

    Students are confronted with multiple perspectives on significant events in U.S. history. They are required to compare and contrast these perspectives and then judge them based on the teachings of Scripture.
