If you’re looking for a resource to help you teach American history from a biblical worldview, we highly recommend Dave Raymond’s American History Curriculum. You can access free lessons using our affiliate link here.
We especially appreciate the evidence-based view it provides of historical characters. It neither romanticizes nor vilifies, but, rather, presents a view that accounts for the complexity of human nature and the problem of sin.
From the website: “History is best understood through the dual lenses of dramatic story and godly wisdom. Veteran history teacher Dave Raymond gives a comprehensive history of the United States by applying a Christian worldview to the characters, events, theology, literature, art, and religious beliefs of the nation. It is an engaging class for Middle school and High school students (Worth one High School History/Social Studies credit.)”
In my opinion, this course offers an excellent balance of interesting DVD lectures, serious reading, and challenging writing coupled with worthwhile portfolio and project work, all presented from within a Christian worldview. – Cathy Duffy
We’re still working through the lessons, but so far so good. It looks like a resource we can recommend!
