Are you looking for high school history, taught in depth, by a brilliant teacher with thoughtful discussion among students and instructor? Home School connections has wonderful offerings of online classes and I must highlight the history being offered for the winter/spring. My older children have had the pleasure of learning history taught by Mr. Campbell. Our family has found him to be an excellent tutor, inspiring a love for history and an ability to think through what it means for us today. My older children all agree that they learn well in Mr. Campbell's classes because "he explains everything well, tells great stories and makes it fun."
The classes will be taught in two six week sessions, covering the period from the end of the Western Schism through the Protestant Revolt and up through the end of the Thirty Years War and the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. These courses (designed for upper high school age) will acquaint students with the pertinent people and ideologies that led directly or indirectly to the outbreak of the Protestant Revolt. Protestant ideas will be contrasted with Catholic theology throughout in order to give the course an apologetic dimension in addition to the historical.
