More Details:
In our book, Civics for Christian Homeschoolers, we review what the Bible says is the true reason for government; government types like democracy, socialism, communism, republics; the Declaration of Independence; the U. S. Constitution; types of laws; a Christian’s rights; juries; voting; the poor; good and bad government…and more!

In our book, Economics for Christian Homeschoolers, we review economics from a Biblical perspective which champions the free market—students tackle such topics as capitalism and socialism, Austrian vs. Keynesian views of economies, supply and demand, profit, labor unions, unemployment, money, and how nations’ economies historically have been harmed by government interference (wage and price controls, minimum wage laws, taxes, inflation, tariffs, make-work schemes, and so on).

Classic Literature
Our book set is Classic Literature for Christian Homeschoolers. Students analyze these areas of Classic Literature: short stories, mysteries, five novels, and a play.  Students also review literary elements (theme, plot, character, setting, poetry terms, irony, symbolism, tone, and style), comparing often humanistic worldviews with a Christian view.

Vocabulary, Grammar, and Usage
Students study usage and grammar rules and concepts (the possessive case, serial commas and comma use, pronoun-antecedent agreement, parenthetic expressions, restrictive clauses, non-restrictive clauses, pronoun cases, verb inflections, and so on).  Vocabulary includes about 40 words, their origins, usage, and synonyms. Concepts are reinforced through regular practice worksheets, exercises, and quizzes.

No boring essays to write! Compositions often relate to areas of study in other subjects such as Classic Literature and Civics.  Students receive thorough corrections on their turn-in essays, with the benefit of Scott Clifton’s degree in journalism and his experience as a writer and editor. Students write five essays on various topics, building up to the Assessable Artifact (a research paper of 1500 words, one per semester). Each Assessable Artifact counts toward the college credits for Composition I and Composition II. Scott gives students class time to work on these papers, and takes class time to individually review students’ drafts, offering help, tips, editing, and suggestions!
