Exploring World History Reviews

Exploring World History is a high school world history curriculum combining world history, world literature, and Bible. It helps high school students gain a fuller understanding of the past as they read the history narrative, read classic literature, complete writing assignments, and study what the Bible says about issues and ideas in world history. Exploring World History provides historical overview lessons along with focused lessons on key events, concepts, and people. It also includes surveys of daily life and culture. The Bible study lessons allow students to concentrate one day a week on the spiritual implications of what they have been studying.

Exploring World History is designed to be easy-to-use for parent and student. Each of the 30 weekly units has an introduction that features a summary of the material covered, a list of lessons, books required for that unit, and suggested writing assignments. Each of the 150 daily lessons (five lessons per week) includes the history text and the reading assignments for that day (and those in progress). A focused student can direct his own study, and the parent can offer as much interaction as needed. Depending on how fast your child reads and how much time he spends on the writing assignments, he may need an average of 2-3 hours for each daily lesson. Completing the full course provides your child with a year’s high school credit in World History, English (literature and composition), and Bible.

This curriculum presents history from the perspective of faith in God and respect for His Word. Each unit includes a Bible study highlighting spiritual issues related to history. It is comprehensive, giving students an overview of world history from Creation to the 21st century. The Exploring World History Curriculum Package includes three books:

  • Part 1: Creation through the Middle Ages (first semester)
  • Part 2: The Renaissance to the Present (second semester)
  • In Their Words: Original Documents, Poetry, Stories, and Hymns from World History (assigned readings)

The history credit involves reading the lessons and the original documents (and answering the questions in the optional Quiz & Exam Pack if desired). The English credit involves studying the grammar points (four times per week), completing the writing assignments, and reading the assigned books, as well as the poems, hymns, and short stories in In Their Words. The Bible credit involves answering the Bible Study Questions (mentally, verbally, or on paper) and reading the Bible study lesson for each unit. A considerable portion of the first third of the curriculum is Bible history. These lessons are also included in the Bible credit.

  1. Exploring World History Review by Mamie Miller
    Pros: Quizzes are short.
    Cons: It elaborates on Israel too much instead of the history of the entire world.

    Grades Used: 10

    This curriculum is ok. I felt it didn’t elaborate on world history and mostly taught biblical history too in depth. I would have appreciated more information about other countries. I understand it’s from a biblical world view but it was just too much for me to read and I feel as though I have much to be desired about world history after reading this book.

  2. Exploring World History Review by Farrah Williams
    Pros: Unit Study, through provoking,
    Cons: Answer key difficult to interpret at times.

    This curriculum changed our homeschool, along with our sons love for history! My DS used to despise history due to it seemed other curriculums were dry and more concentrated on learning dates and events took place. When a fellow homeschool family donated and insisted we use this curriculum, I gave it a try and am so very thankful for it being led to our family. Exploring America not only gives dates and time periods, but also shares personal stories behind the events, which makes learning a memorable experience instead of “data-dumping”. Exploring World History showed DS that learning History can be interesting! Not only does he now adore history, but he now loves to read..thanks to the literature program intertwined with the curriculum. We LOVE how this one curriculum is a unit study and a student can receive 3 credits with one curriculum. The writing assignments each week aren’t your “run of the mill” questions, they are quite through provoking, which is quite desirable at this grade level
