About the Course
Prerequisite: English I or testing out of English I.
This class is combined with English II (World Literature and composition) as one 2-hour class.
Students will be using The Classical Historian World History curriculum, which teaches students to think independently, make decisions, read, write, speak effectively, AND learn history/literature rather than just memorizing useless facts. The Classical Historian uses a Five Step Method:
1. Students learn the Tools of the Historian.
2. Students are challenged with Open-Ended Questions.
3. Students research in a Variety of Secondary and Primary Sources.
4. Students engage in a Socratic Discussion.
5. Students write Analytical Essays for history/literature and a term paper.
Students will have a biweekly review in their grammar studies using World Literature authors. They will also be reading selected World Literature books and working through James Stobaugh’s World Literature textbook with Biblical worldview discussions and analytical essays. This class counts as credits toward two separate classes: History and English.
There is a Fine Arts credit class that works alongside this class which will be on Thursdays. It is highly recommended that World History students take that class with Mrs. Griffin. A term paper will be required for both classes, but one term paper will count for both.
My name is Mrs. Erickson and I teach English, History, Creative Writing, and SAT/AP test prep. I was born and raised in Upstate NY and graduated from Houghton College with a BS in Christian Education. I also have a teaching certificate from the Evangelical Teacher Training Association in Christian Education. I have worked with all ages, from young children to adults, teaching Christian Education classes and tutoring students in Reading/English for 25+ years. I homeschooled my two boys in the Classical tradition throughout their schooling years and have taught in the classroom for about 12+ years. I have been married to my husband Mark for 28 years, and I am a grandmother to three grandchildren. I love to crochet, cross stitch, read, and spend time at home.
