World History

Gladie Green

This course includes a survey of the history of human cultures, civilizations, and the rise and study of world views. Spanning ancient history through the start of the 21st century, our main texts Streams of Civilization, Volumes 1 and 2, anchor the history portion of the course. Written by Christian authors, these books not only provide a beautiful historical overview, but also weave in unique insights and analysis about science, music, art, architecture, pop culture and other topics of interest throughout. Key terms and concepts typically tested on the AP World History Exam will be highlighted. Recommended for 10th-12th graders
