Covering Ancient History 3932 BC to 1000 BC, Volume 1 begins with Creation and concludes with the Judges of Israel all within 35 chapters. The American History portion, which covers 1500 to 1776, is presently a very well laid out, extremely detailed, written timeline that can easily be supplemented with books from the library.
Honor of Kings Education Philosophy:
Table of Contents & Chapter One
"Our general philosophy of educating children begins with the idea that God is the Creator of all, including the subjects our children learn in school. As an example, Genesis speaks of the created animals. Thus, we study biology. Because God created everything, we believe it is inappropriate to teach any school subjects in a way that excludes the Creator.
We believe that education should be thought-provoking. That is to say, parents achieve their best results when they teach children how to think for themselves rather than simply spoon-feeding them information. Our curriculum does just that through logical thought progression while using activities and exercises to illustrate key points.
We also believe education works best when it is structured, so that children always know what is expected of them and adults have some way to determine success or failure. Structure doesn’t mean learning can’t be enjoyable, but making school “fun” at the expense of structured learning usually doesn’t achieve the best results."
