History is approached differently by different curriculums. Some day I will include some information about that, but for now, I will say this: If your children have to be tested and history is included on the tests, you might need to choose the same path as your local school system, otherwise you will be free to choose how to go about teaching history to your children.

There is not really much here in the history section at this time. I have some reading schedules, printable forms, pictures of presidents, maps, and some book suggestions.

World View - A course for older children (Would probably be best for high school. Earn credits in Bible, literature, and history.)
The main book:
"Description: Help your kids construct a cultural compass for navigating a lifetime! Laying the foundation for a biblical worldview, this one-year curriculum trains young people to "examine everything carefully"---ideas, books, movies---and "hold fast to that which is good." Features weekly teaching overviews; daily assignments based on Scripture, literature, and American history; and penetrating short-answer and essay questions. Grades 7 and up. 479 pages, softcover from Cornerstone Curriculum." quoted from CBD
