Level W - One Year World History

Great for ages 12-14

Sonlight's complete World History program takes two full years. If you have the time to do all of Sonlight G and H, that's still my top recommendation. You'll enjoy many more favorite books, and you'll get a deeper, richer study of history.

But not everyone feels they can spend two years on World History. Some customers are new to Sonlight and only have a year before they need to start the high school programs. Some customers know they have only this last year to homeschool, but would like to complete a whole sweep of History.

If so, rather than do only the first half or the second half of World History, I recommend this one-year condensed program. Although, of course, I had to leave some things out, it's my best effort to slim down our two-year program to a single year.

Besides having to remove some books, Sonlight W has one significant change from G and H. In the two-year version, students read the four-volume Story of the World. But four volumes, as well as all the other history books, would be too much in one year. Instead, Sonlight W uses Hillyer's Child's History of the World as the foundation for the History. It has excellent content, and allows the students time to read additional works that add variety and depth to their studies.

Estimated daily time for One-Year World History plus your other subjects: Student: 4-6 hrs | Parent: 2-3.5 hrs
