With History 400, you receive:
Government 400 is designed for your student's independent study. The Government and Bible Student Guide provides daily reading assignments, along with additional notes and questions to reinforce reading and aid understanding. Use your accompanying Parent Guide to follow along, monitor learning and discuss, as desired.
Government / Civics
Your primary text, Basic American Government, provides an excellent overview of the background to the Constitution, the Constitution itself and what has happened historically to bring its interpretation to its current state. For balance, we include the popular and highly palatable Complete Idiot's Guide to U.S. Government and Politics.
Other books in your Government 400 course unearth fascinating details and survey the subject broad and deep. A few highlights:
- Our three-branch government explained: Get inside the presidential election process, a summary of the Supreme Court and a complete behind-the-scenes explanation of Congress.
- Encounter a powerful story about the need for the Civil Rights movement.
- Liberal? Conservative? Erase any confusion, as differences in today's parties are clarified.
Civil Law of the Bible
Should religious truth influence civil government? The politically correct answer is no. The level 400 Bible and Theology program challenges that answer.
You and your students will interact with Scripture in an ambitious new way. Two thought-provoking books, God and Politics and Truth and Transformation, ask you to question assumptions and serve as your guide to examine civil government through a Biblical lens.
With Economics, You Receive:
As with its upper-level counterparts, students can readily and successfully study Economics on their own. Your Instructor's Guide (with two lesson plan options, general and AP* prep) provides daily assignments, helpful notes, thought-provoking questions and answers, too — all of which reinforce your student's reading and understanding.
Students will encounter the 18-week Economics course in an inviting way. From Bible-focused journal questions that offer insight into God's perspective on money and other earthly treasures, to challenging computer-graded exercises, this course readies your children for college and life. Students will find a solid foundation that helps develop good stewardship values to guide them over time.
