Heritage History classes are on a 4 year rotation: Antiquity, Christendom, Early Modern, and Modernity
2021-2022 History courses will cover the era of Christendom.
Fourth through Sixth
This course will cover the Middle Ages from the fall of Rome until the age of exploration, including the Renaissance, Reformation, and early church history.
Seventh and Eighth
This course will cover the Middle Ages from the fall of Rome until the age of exploration, including the Renaissance, Reformation, and early church history. Students will consider what worldview is and how it affects life and culture, both in their personal experience and in history. This course will be taught with the goal of better understanding God’s divine plan for His Church.
Students will be expected to complete reading from a textbook, primary sources, and living books from the time period. Educational videos will be used to supplement instruction. Assessment will be given in the form of writing assignments, class discussions, projects, and activities. No summative assessments (tests, final exams, etc.) will be given in this course.
The outstanding King's Meadow Christendom curriculum (lecture sample here) is the centerpiece of this class, which dovetails with our high school English and literature classes. This class is a survey of the key events, locations, art, philosophy, theology, and civics of culture from the fall of Rome through the Renaissance (~476-1685 A.D.). Students will listen to lectures, read and respond to selected primary texts, complete maps and timelines, and participate in a variety of extension activities while exploring the people, events, and ideas that characterized this time period and honing their critical thinking and presentation skills, both written and oral.
