About This Seminar

For home educators, subjects like math and grammar seem difficult to teach from a uniquely Biblical worldview. On the other hand, history appears easier to teach as a Christian. However, history has its own challenges. Often, educators break the story of history to make moral sermons or to highlight a unique act of providence. Unfortunately, this approach leaves large spans of time without any mention of God. In this seminar, Brian, will demonstrate how a worldview approach, centered on content selection and critical-thinking skills, enables all children to develop a Biblical worldview through the study of history as a complete narrative.
