12th Grade American History Course Overview
What is this course about? Read this description by course instructor, Dr. Gary North:
I teach students to think, then dig deeper, then re-think.
This course requires students to read and analyze primary source documents. It requires them to read recent conventional opinions on historical figures, inventions, and events. It requires them to listen to my assessments of chronological developments in these areas: politics, law, economic history, and religious history. They must also look at maps. A lot is revealed by maps.
This course teaches students to consider the five W’s: what?, where?, when?, who?, and why? It also teaches them to consider this: how?
In this 36-week course, students complete daily reading assignments and watch a video commentary on Monday through Thursday. Friday’s video will review the previous four lessons. The student will be expected to write a short essay on Friday about the main topic of the week.
