focuses on world history during the years 1800-1956. Focusing on interpreting history from a biblical worldview, lessons offer an explicitly Christian perspective on world events.

The Student Text lessons are designed specifically for homeschoolers who have the freedom to learn through multiple learning styles; students are given multiple options for learning that include visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning modalities, and lessons integrate the four learning styles and eight intelligences. Units open with a list of key concepts before diving into chapters that clearly explain events with a narrative-style tone. Each unit is then broken into four one-week segments, called phases, which cover multiple learning methods and provide the accompanying activities for the lessons.
- In Phase 1, the student reads the unit article and then listens to fascinating stories of history told by Diana in the What in the World is Going on Here?, True Tales, and Digging Deeper audio CDs. Discussion questions, critical thinking/comprehension exercises, and a self-evaluation are also included, along with a list of optional additional resources to read.
- Phase 2 focuses on exploration and discovery. The student researches a topic of his or her own choosing and also learns vocabulary and constructs a timeline.
- Phase 3 focuses on the geography, arts, and sciences of the period covered through activities in science, art, architecture, cooking, and music. Mapwork exercises ask students to mark physical, geopolitical, and other important information on maps while considering the implications of geography.
- In Phase 4, students are encouraged to express themselves in their own unique way, choosing a project that may include writing, art, music, drama, movement, conceptual design, or other areas of expression.
