  • Diana Waring’s A History Revealed

Diana Waring’s world history curriculum makes history memorable and exciting, while encouraging relationships and engaging students!  What’s also wonderful about this approach is that during each time period, one-per-month, we are simultaneously looking at what Christians are doing throughout the world:  missions, revivals, note-worthy actions, beginning of organizations still in place today! This is a FUN course!            (All courses may be taken in any order)

WORLD HISTORY

Students love Diana Waring’s approach to world history (A History Revealed) which includes a variety of learning approaches for all learning styles!  This is a FUN way to study history!!!

Romans, Reformers, Revolutionaries covers a tumultuous time in history when the Church explodes throughout the world; uncharted regions are explored; distant cultures are united; and religious wars burst into flame. Technology, medicine, philosophy, and art sweep nations into bitter turmoil and proud independence. Through it all, you will see God moving behind the scenes to accomplish His purposes.

Therefore A History Revealed implements a variety of learning approaches!  This curriculum doesn’t just teach history; it includes a focus on timelines, music and art appreciation, architecture, literature, foods, maps, etc. of the time period.  This is important as it enables students to make meaningful connections between these various disciplines and to understand them within their historical context.  Variety makes this a fun course! A History Revealed approach is engaging, active, never a dull moment.  Every 4 weeks, a new time period studied with

Week 1:  Reading, listening to CDs         

Week 2:  Research and Present PowerPoint

Week 3:  Hands-on Project 

Week 4:  Creative Expression

SPEECH 

Presentations once a month on an area of interest.  Students get a broad feel for each time period as they sit back and learn from each other’s research.  Using PowerPoint or posters, students share with the class their research and develop confidence in a small classroom setting where what they say matters!  Making their own choices every month for research and a hand-on project or artistic expression (a plethora of ideas in the textbook) makes this course educationally interesting!!

Hands-on project or Artistic Expression once a month:  Some bring recordings of music of the time period; other prefer performing (music, puppetry, drama, journalism, art, etc.).  Others show art (by use of projector) or create their own. Others choose from ideas for journalism, architecture, graphic design, etc.  Others love cooking a food from the culture we’re studying and sharing it with the class.  The list goes on and on.  A History Revealed provides SO many ideas for expression so that students truly get a hands-on, multi-sensory educational experience.  Coming from so many angles makes learning stick. Actively involved, students learn best by doing and speaking
