We take a close look at a number of important ideas, persons, movements, and events in American history, including the origins of American liberty, America’s “conservative” revolution, the Constitution, the “Civil War” and Reconstruction, World War I, the Great Depression, the “New Deal,” World War II, communism and the Cold War, the civil rights movement, and modern presidencies.  We have a number of in-class group studies, activities, and discussions.  U. S. History also includes various audio-visuals like photographs, paintings, documentary film clips, and radio clips.


British Literature (Book Set: British Literature for Christian Homeschoolers)

These selections uplift and challenge students, and they demonstrate various aspects of British history and culture.  We discuss literary elements such as theme, plot, character, setting, metaphor, irony, symbolism, tone, and style.  The sometimes humanistic worldviews of the authors are compared with a Christian worldview.

• Turn-in essays
• 12 British Literature project questions, spread throughout the year

Compositions often relate to other U. S. History and British Literature subjects.  Topics include a satirical essay on a modern topic, a character sketch, news articles, etc.  Students receive detailed corrections on their turn-in essays, with the benefit of Scott Clifton’s degree in journalism and his writing and editing experience.
