Wonderful High School World History Books
Review by
Student Book
This is a great high school-level World History course. My son and I both liked the way it is written. Every lesson is engaging and thought-provoking. I especially like the start of each chapter. You are given a chapter overview and a list of things the reader should be able to discuss, analyze & reflect on by the end of the chapter. I also like the highlighted boxes which pull out key vocabulary or important facts. The use of original book excerpts, speeches, passages, and quotes was a great addition. There are beautiful colorful pictures in this book—they help to bring each topic to life. More than anything, I feel that this course has prepared my son to be able to understand and comfortably discuss the history of our world. *This book uses the same format as the American History student book which was nice to see.

Teacher Guide:
Includes 36 weekly schedules, Activity Sheets for each chapter, Answer Keys for activity sheets and reviews, a comparative worldview chart, and a detailed World History Timeline and

This course is written for a 10-12th-grade child to do independently. There are thorough directions that guide them through each lesson.
Great World History Course
Review by
The World History course is an excellent history course for your upper high-school student (10th-12th grade). It is a one-year course (36 weeks) that will earn your student 1 credit. Time investment is about 30-45 minutes per day, five days a week.

This course covers world history with a Christian worldview starting at Creation and following through into the early 21st century. The student text is split into 36 chapters, and each chapter is split into the daily corresponding lesson. The text is just beautifully put together, easy to read, written for easy understanding, and the pictures and graphics are bright and vivid. Each chapter gives an overview, objectives, and key people and places.

History can be a hard subject to study, but the author has written this text with an approach of “an unfolding of God’s plan for the world,” and it really is just an excellent and fascinating course to go through!

The Teacher Guide is direct and to the point. It easily guides you to lead your student through this amazing course. This course is developed for the student to complete independently, other than parent/teacher evaluation of assignments and exams.

The Teacher Guide includes everything needed to complete this course successfully. It includes a suggested weekly schedule, as well as all of the daily worksheets, worldview assignments (day 5 of each week), and the four quarterly exams. Answer keys are included in the back of the Teacher Guide for easy evaluation.

All assignments are appropriate for the grade level this course is meant for. They are varied in activity each day and check for understanding of the text.
Great World History course!
Review by
I cannot say enough! First assignment right off the bat goes over how your student will be reading through Genesis and its commentary during the course to lay a biblical foundation for your child. Day 5’s assignment is to read scripture and commentary and take notes. Another important skill I think this course develops within your child as they progress.The course text book is great, full of color, chapter overviews and what information your child should have been able to glean from each chapter for discussions. Honestly, I can grab any “history book” and teach my child the facts of the world, but to teach them to see things from the lens of our Creator and the gospel- that makes this course SUCH a winner. Your child will not only be learning word history, but they will gain a deeper understanding of Genesis, the beginning of time and most importantly, our Creator.
History from a Biblical Worldview
Review by
History has always been a subject that I enjoyed, but I can honestly say that many history textbooks books I’ve seen are really dull. This is a pleasant exception. It seems like a natural progression from Angela O’Dell’s World’s Story (which is also a very enjoyable read). It is thorough without being overwhelming or boring. It is written in an engaging style, and it is broken apart in very digestible portions for daily assignments. The assignments and exams seem to follow the text. One of the features I appreciate is the box at the beginning of each chapter that contains the topics that the student should be able to discuss after reading. This is really helpful in promoting independence for the high school student. The addition of So Noted is a really neat way to set a proper foundation for studying world history. What a great course to help solidify the student’s comprehension of the history of our world, as well as their worldview.
As a side note, there is an academy course that supplements this course with videos for 4 out of 5 days each week.
Bringing History to Life
Review by
I will be the first to admit, I never enjoyed history in school growing up. I found it so dry and boring. Honestly, I thought this would be my least favorite subject to teach my children. Masterbooks history has repeatedly changed my mind in that department with their history curriculum. I found this to be the case with their elementary curriculum, but I was curious to know how it would be in high school. My daughter is in 10th grade, and we thought this curriculum would be a good fit for her to get her high school world history credit. I was very surprised to see how they brought forth high school level teaching, while still making history come alive. The Bible is such an important part of history, and we only felt it appropriate to teach history from a young earth perspective, which this curriculum does. Each section is taught from a Biblical perspective. The curriculum starts in the beginning with creation and goes through modern times (even covering Sept. 11). Colorful pictures capture the student (and parent reading too). There are daily questions in the teacher's guide to go along with each lesson. I highly recommend this curriculum for parents looking for a Biblically solid high school history curriculum.

We have found this book to be very challenging and difficult to understand. It is hard to get the answers from the text we just read and even the reading seems to be on a college level! We were frustrated the whole way through this book!
Nearly Unusable
Review by
This has been an extraordinarily difficult book to get through. Questions do not correspond to the chapter well at all, the answers listed in the back of the teachers manuals often are not found in the text itself.
Considering changing curriculum at the change of the semester.
Very Disappointed.
Review by
I really wanted to like this book and tried to overlook the reviews that I had read before purchasing it. But now I am regretting my purchase. We are on Chapter 5 and I have found that many times the worksheet assignments do not go well with the text book. The wording is confusing and the information to place the correct answer is not in the textbook. I wish I could be refunded for this purchase and the purchase of the video teaching as well. The teacher is speaking and then she is cut off in the middle of her sentence. Some lessons are only 3 minutes long and I find it wasn’t worth the money. I’m uncertain to continue or what to do.
Good info, not so great workbooks
Review by
I bought this for my 10th grade twins. The information and daily "chapters" are good. Very direct and to the point about the info they need in consumable daily chunks. However, and I do find this among several workbooks from Masterbooks, the daily assignments are frustrating because some of the answers are not from the reading, nor are they "make a connection and infer from the reading" answers. On multiple occasions I have gone over their assignments and thought that questions were worded poorly or confusing, or that the info was just not there! I do love Masterbooks as a way of thinking, and creating discussions, but the occurrences are too frequent for me to really consider again.
Good book
Review by
It was a good book overall and comprehensive. Yes there was a contradiction with the answer key but overall a good book for school. Thank you!
