Sneak Peek #8: New World History Guide

Post by Carrie » Mon Apr 14, 2014 8:46 pm

Ladies,

It's so exciting to see the sneak peeks mounting up for our newest guide. What a process it is to get the various pieces of the guide to come together! It is joyous moment for me whenever we get to this stage and the book selections and choices for each part of the guide have fallen into place. I love the opportunity to share those choices with all of you! 8)

Today's sneak peek is what the title of the new guide is all about! :D So, we've finally come to the spines of the new World History guide. It has truly been a journey to gather the right combination of resources together for a one-year overview of World History. Since it is such a huge span of time to cover in one year, many decisions had to be made along the way of how to approach the study. We knew we wanted to stick to a narrative style history and that we wanted Christ at the center of that study. We also desired for students to get a feel for what it would be like to live in the various time periods and to think about some of the issues of the times. Integrating personal stories of those who lived during the time period was a priority too, as it would help students personally connect to the struggles and joys of those who lived during each period in history. Experiencing history through primary and secondary source documents, quotes, audios, and varying viewpoints was another goal for the study, prompting students to think more deeply about each time period. Telling history from the very beginning, starting with God's Word was another important goal. :D

With these goals in mind, I'll share a list of the combination of resources that we have settled upon for this trip through World History: 8)
*World History Teacher’s Guide
*Unveiling the Kings of Israel
*People, Places, & Events of World History (Texts only: Chapters 1-6)
*You Are There! World History Collection (Audio CD)
*In Context: The Stories Behind Seventy Memorable Sayings in Church History
*Short Lessons in World History (either reproduce or purchase one per student)
*King Alfred’s English
*Trial and Triumph: Stories from Church History
*Courage and Conviction: Chronicles of the Reformation Church
*Critical Thinking Using Primary Sources in World History (either reproduce or purchase one per student)
*World History Journal (one per student)
*World History Timeline Figures (printable CD)
*Book of Centuries (one time purchase per student for all high school years) (Note: Not needed if previously purchased for World Geography guide)

Individual descriptions of the resources are found below. We pray you will be as inspired as we are by the combination! :D

Unveiling the Kings of Israel: Unearth the history of the small nation of Israel – the troubled and devastating periods of loss and exile – once lost to time. Far from being a book of myths, the Bible is an amazing historical record, and each year, more archaeological discoveries continue to prove its validity and significance. Follow the intriguing clues found buried in ancient cities, on the walls of early monuments, and in the written records of our world’s oldest civilizations. Walk the ancient streets, explore the distant temples, and unearth the compelling history that continues to resonate with the world today. :D
This text includes:
*Cultural references proven through artifacts and archives in full color.
*Fascinating accounts that fill in some of history’s unwritten record.
*A Biblical timeline highlighted by detailed photos and examples.

People, Places, & Events of World History:
The People, Places, & Events of World History is designed for high school students. As part of the design of this world history course, students study the following 15 basic components of cultures: Agriculture, Architecture, Communication, Discoveries, Dominant Personalities, Education, Families, Food, Government, Industry, Energy, Military, Religion, Sports, and Transportation. In covering history in this manner, students gain a cultural perspective of life in various time periods, rather than following a strictly chronological approach to studying historical events.

This course consists of six chapters that cover time from 5000 B.C. to 2011 A.D. The first chapter begins with evidence of civilization in the Fertile Crescent and expands from there to the major continents of the world. Throughout the six chapters of text, Biblical and Christian history is treated as fact; and related people, events, and quotations are interwoven as part of the telling of world history.

The writers incorporate a conversational, narrative style designed to engage students. Interesting vignettes on different aspects of the world’s cultures enrich the already interesting text. Selected vocabulary words are highlighted and defined to help promote understanding. Black-and-white illustrations, maps, and time lines are sprinkled throughout each chapter to create mental images that enhance comprehension of the People, Places, & Events of World History. This set of texts is used as one part of the study of world history in our Heart of Dakota guide. Combining multiple resources allows students to gain a fuller and richer understanding of world history as students read about history from the perspectives of varying authors. :D

You Are There! World History Audio Collection:
Feel like you are there, experiencing the events of world history afresh! See the Fall of Troy, the Battle of Thermopylae, Charlemagne, the Signing of the Magna Charta, the Storming of the Bastille, the Exile and Reign of Napoleon, and even more events from 1200 B.C. to 1899 A.D. In the format of the CBS old time radio shows broadcast in the height of the 'Radio Years', these "Old Time Radio Shows" provide history lessons in a historical format.

Each show begins with "live" background coverage of the historical event, and then the "on the scene reporters" take over. For example, everybody knows there were no radio announcers in Ancient Greece, but you will be transported back in time anyway as the show "broadcasts" from inside and outside of Troy during the “Fall of Troy”. The dialogue is very believable, historically accurate, and very much in character. It is apparent that the producers of this show did their homework! Let's listen to the announcer now..."CBS takes you back to 1200 B.C. All things are as they were then, except for one thing: when CBS is there, You Are There! You Are There is based on authentic historical fact and quotations, and now, on to our story." 31 Tracks (each track is 25-30 min. long) :D

In Context: The Stories Behind Seventy Memorable Sayings in Church History:
The selections in this volume relay Christian history by telling the stories behind seventy stellar sayings. Together the quotes cover the first twenty centuries after Christ’s birth and many of the key events in the spread of the Christian faith. The sayings included are worth contemplating because they distill the essence of a historical period, an individual, or a movement.

Have you ever heard someone choose the "lesser of two evils" when making a particularly tough decision? The origin of this common saying might surprise you as being from Christian writer Thomas a 'Kempis in the early 15th Century. Kempis was encouraging believers to endure whatever trials may come their way in the name of faith, for the alternative would be eternal separation from God--an evil to be avoided at all costs. From Mary, the mother of Jesus, to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the authors comb the centuries to provide well-researched, thoughtful accounts of faith inspiring sayings related to:
*famous last words
*historic utterances
*favorite lines from hymns
*lasting creeds
*bold declarations of faith
*comforting words

We hope you will enjoy this tour through Christian history by way of some of its best-known sayings! :D

King Alfred’s English:
One needs only to glance at Chaucer, or even further back at Beowulf, to see that English has not always been what we call English. Divided into the major epochs of the language--Pre-English Britain, Old English (which was formed from an invasion of Latin & Old Norse), Middle to Modern English, and Modern English--the retelling of history in King Alfred’s English will engross you.

This book provides a guided tour of forces and events, conquerors and writers that have shaped, simplified, matured and expanded English into what it is today—the first truly global language in history. Mingling history, religion, famous people, and linguistics, this text integrates the story of English into the narrative of Western History.

The capstone of the book is the story of how we got the Bible in English and the Bible’s influence upon our language. As you read, you’ll discover answers to questions like the following: What were the driving ideas behind the Reformation? Are the New Testament documents really reliable and how do they compare to other ancient manuscripts? Why was translating the Bible into English punishable by death and what does all that have to do with the history of English?
Learning about the history of the English language has never been as entertaining as it is in King Alfred’s English. :D

Trial and Triumph: Stories from Church History:
Christianity is a faith in love with history. God took on human flesh and dwelt among us. The Spirit carried that divine work over the centuries, providing courage and maturity even amid our imperfections. Christians find their true family line not through tribes and ethnic blood, but in the bond of faithfulness and shed blood that has united our family for millennia. We too often view Church history as the story of obscure people, instead of as the lives of brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers.

In this collection of forty-six chronologically arranged biographies, Hannula sketches the stirring trials and triumphs of many famous and some lesser known figures in our family of faith, including Augustine, Charlemagne, Anselm, Luther, Bunyan, and Charles Spurgeon. These biographies provide a wonderful glimpse into the role that the Christian faith played in the lives of people throughout history; beginning with the “Early Church,” moving into the “Middle Ages” followed by the “Reformation” and the “Post-Reformation,” and finishing with “Modern Missions” and “Recent Times.” This provides a great way to learn Church history through fascinating biographical sketches!

Note: While this book is a tremendous resource for Church history, due to its mature content, we waited to use it until our students were older and more mature in their faith. With that being said, I am excited for our students not to miss the opportunity to read this wonderful book as one part of our study of world history. I believe it will help students appreciate the sacrifice that many Christians have made for their faith and (when used in conjunction with the other resources within our guide) help students gain a fuller picture of each person and his/her role in history. Even if your students have already had exposure to this book, reading it independently as scheduled in our guide will be a different experience. This book is used as one resource within our study of world history. :D

Courage and Conviction: Chronicles of the Reformation Church:
Let history come to life - just the way it should. Read the stories of the reformers in the 16th and 17th centuries who changed the face of the Christian church forever. Meet the German monk, the French scholar, and the Scottish tutor who protested corruption in the church. Get to know the queens and explorers who risked everything for the freedom to worship according to their consciences.

It was a time of war and upheaval, but also a time of promise and hope. From Erasmus and Luther to Katherine Parr and William Bradford, God used different personalities in different places to bring sweeping changes to church government and the way we worship. Learn from their mistakes and be encouraged by their amazing strengths and gifts. Extra features throughout this book look deeper into issues such as the Scientific Revolution, wars of religion, the Puritans, and the settling of the Americas.

Contents:
This volume spans the years from 1500 to 1700. Chapters highlight the lives of Desiderius Erasmus, Martin Luther, Menno Simons, John Calvin, Katherine Parr, Thomas Cranmer, John Knox, Jeanne d’Albret, William Bradford, Samuel Rutherford, John Bunyan, and John Eliot. Additional background features include: Reformation Church Timeline; What was the Reformation Church?; The Catholic Reformation; Big Changes in the Reformation World; War and Religion; The Settling of the Americas; Confessions and Catechisms of the Reformation; Other Reformation Christians; and Enlightenment and Awakening. :D

Note: This is the only book in the “History Lives” series that we haven’t used in a previous Heart of Dakota guide. This is because Mystery of History III did such a good job of covering the people and events from this time period in our guide Resurrection to Reformation that we didn’t need it. We are thrilled to include this book now, allowing students to complete the series.

Critical Thinking Using Primary Sources in World History:
Use primary and secondary source material to explore the lives and times of such notables as Roman Emperor Octavian Augustus and the Formation of the Roman Empire, Eleanor of Aquitaine and the Angevin Empire, Martin Luther and the Suppression of the Peasant Revolt, Oliver Cromwell and the English Civil War, Peter the Great and the Westernization of Russia, John Newton and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, Maximilien Robespierre and “The Republic of Virtue”, Robert Peel and the Corn Laws, Sylvia Pankhurst: Advocate or Subversive?, Boxer Rebellion and the Westernization of China, and Francisco (Pancho) Villa: Outlaw or Revolutionary?

This resource takes evaluation of primary source documents to a new level by providing historical background information about the person and the time period being studied, critical-reading questions to guide the reading of the documents, and multiple documents about a singular event or person for students to compare. After reading and analyzing the provided documents (and using what they know about the person and event from other history readings), students must then take a stand about a “charge” leveled against the person in history and defend that stance using excerpts from the primary source documents to support their stance. This process develops critical thinking and opinion-based writing skills, and prepares students for document-based assessment. Grade level: 10-12 Note: Either reproduce these lessons or purchase one per student. :D
See sample pages inside: http://walch.com/samplepages/050094.pdf

World History Timeline Figures:
We are thrilled that Amy Pak has consented to create a printable CD of her beautiful timeline figures to specifically fit our World History guide! This CD will contain hand-drawn detailed images, along with Amy’s helpful descriptive text under each image, to guide students to remember key points about each person or event. These timeline figures will be scheduled to coordinate with the readings in our World History plans and will need to be be printed, cut out, colored, and placed on gallery pages within our Book of Centuries. :D

Book of Centuries:
Pages for the Book of Centuries come 3-hole punched on heavy paper for easy insertion into a 3-ring binder. Pages are in full-color and are appealingly designed to provide a permanent record of time that students will add to throughout their high school years. A full-color cover is included to place in a clear sleeve in the front of your own 3-ring binder. Students are instructed within the "Learning Through History" side of the plans in each high school guide where to place various entries on the provided pages of the Book of Centuries. Each century opens to a two-page spread, with a gallery of portraits and images designed by Amy Pak on the left side and a page of lines representing 5-10 year increments on the right side for written entries. This helps organize student's timeline work to create a visually appealing record of time from the student's study of history throughout high school. Each student needs his/her own Book of Centuries, however this is a one-time purchase as students keep the same book throughout all the high school years. Note: If you already purchased the Book of Centuries for use with the World Geography Guide, then you will not need to purchase this item. :D

World History Journal:
Student Notebook Pages for Hearts for Him Through High School: World History come 3-hole punched on heavy paper for easy insertion into a 3-ring binder. Pages are in full-color and are beautifully designed to provide a permanent keepsake for your student(s). A full-color cover is included to place in a clear sleeve in the front of your own 3-ring binder. Students are instructed where to place various assignments on the provided pages of the Student Notebook throughout the "Learning Through History" side of the World History plans. This helps organize student's work to create a visually appealing portfolio of assignments from the student's study of world history. Entries within the full-color notebook include multi-paragraph narrations, graphic organizer-style notes on varying viewpoints from You Are There! listening sessions, written opinions, quotations in context, analysis of multiple primary source documents about the same event, support for conclusions drawn from primary source documents, interpretation of maps, and other written responses. Students also file their maps from Short Lessons in World History in the notebook as well. Each student needs his/her own set of Student Notebook Pages. :D

Blessings,
Carrie

I couldn't agree more with pp! This is what I love about HOD! I love your books. I pretty much have read cover to cover most of the books my kids have for school long before they see them. I am reading them on box day. Thank you so much for the wonderful sneak peek! Looks AWESOME!

Amazing !!!!!!! :D I absolutely love it! ;)

Carrie, once again your selections are superb! My oldest will start WG this fall, and the new WH is on our horizon. I truly can't wait to order this, and dig in myself, with these fabulous resources. It sounds like the work involved with the primary source documents will be much more in-depth in this new guide. I can see how you've prepared students step - by - step for this through earlier guides. ;)

I've been very anxiously awaiting the next sneak peeks, so thank you SO much, Carrie! I can't wait to see what else is in store! :D

Carrie it never ceases to amaze me how you manage to come up with such a great and varied combination of sources. I love how it has everything from reading books that are written in a living style, to audio sources, to books that have questions and quizzes and require deeper responses. I too am excited about the level the primary documents study will not go to. I can see easily how what we are doing in MTMM is preparing him for this. As others have said the great thing is that I get to do this as my summer school :D , the summer before he does it. I have learned so much from the HOD books and now actually enjoy history myself. When I think back to my ps high school years one of the classes I thought was so boring and dreaded was history. Just reading from a textbook and memorizing dates and places sucked all the life out of history. The way HOD does history brings it all to life in such a wonderful way.

I also got to see these wonderful resources at MACHE this weekend. My son has done several guides already and is currently doing the WG guide as a sophomore. When we went to the conference, he wanted to look at other options for World History. Grass is greener syndrome, as he has friends whose school doesn't seem to take as long as his does. I wasn't about to bend to his whim, but I thought I would appeal to his curiosity and let him see what is out there. After showing him the many other World History options available from different vendors, we went to the HOD booth, looked at the World History display, and he got to talk with Carrie briefly. As we walked away, he said, "We're sticking with HOD. Just doing a textbook would probably be faster, but I know I won't learn as much, and I do like reading the books."

So there you have it, a thumbs up from the teen crowd. We are looking forward to ordering and getting our boxes. I look forward to a good summer of reading myself. :-)
I've done all the guides now with at least one child and still feeling the HOD LOVE. LOL!

The history post... at last! I'm so delighted to see that you are using another pacworks resource. I really, really like their materials. And all the other materials offer such wonderful depth. Nicely done. Do you have an alternate suggestion for a student who has just completed Trial and Triumph?

When will the placement chart be posted?
With Joy!

I have been checking and checking for this sneak peak! I'm so excited to finally see it - however, now I have a conundrum. I had thought about doing something else with my upcoming junior next year since she won't be able to follow the whole plan for high school. I have been looking at various things. But, this year with WG has impacted her faith so much that I didn't want to change anything. Now, that I see the incredible compilation of materials you have, I'm pretty sure I will have to re-think my plan. I just love so much how you use so many different types of books and materials rather than just one textbook. I could never put that together on my own. I'm so excited to see it in person in Cincy and get my hands on everything! Thank you! :D
