Guided by the truth revealed in God's world, Stobaugh's Studies in World History course rejects common post-modern approaches to the past and instead takes a firmly Christian stance to history, truth, and knowledge.
A chronological junior high history course (one year curriculum), Volume 2 covers "The New Age to the Modern World (1500 AD-1900 AD)" Chapters focus on the Clash of Cultures, Europe & the Renaissance, Reformation, Revolutions, and more, while examining history, geography, religion, economics, and government systems across the world and through time.
The 34 chapters each have five lessons, one for each day of the school-week. Taking approximately 20-30 minutes each day, lessons include a short reading followed by discussion questions. Some questions are open-ended, while others are comprehension questions derived from the text. Black and white photographs of archival documents or artifacts are included throughout.
Chapters open with a "First Thoughts" section that provides background information and an introduction to the historical period, as well as chapter learning objectives. A sidebox lists important concepts, terms, and theories to be learned; these same words are bolded in the lesson text.
A teacher's guide with tests, answers, discussion questions, and other materials is sold-separately.
