A Young Historian's Introduction to World View
You absolutely need to teach your children how to evaluate life with respect to world views. It is critical for social relationships and for the understanding of current events, and it is absolutely mandatory for grasping history. Your history program may or may not occasionally reference world views, but unless you purposefully make it your goal that your children understand what a world view is, they just may graduate with a disturbingly weak understanding of why wars are fought, how rulers obtain power, and how certain cultures are debased while others are glorified.
Engaging Discussions and Hands-on Activities
A Young Historian's Introduction to Worldview is the most complete, most accessible, most child-friendly program we have ever encountered. Through engaging discussions and hands-on activities, your children will use deductive reasoning to recognize that the same set of observations can be interpreted differently based on the world view of the interpreter.
Looks at Twelve of the Most Well-Known Religions and Philosophies
Four fundamental world views are presented: naturalism, pantheism, monotheism, and polytheism. Contained within each of these are a variety of specific religions and philosophies; the course will be looking at twelve of the most well-known. Because each of the world views is presented matter-of-factly, it is up to you, the parent, to discuss and solidify your own family's values through the numerous Table Talk sections.
Provides Answers to Questions Many Adults Have Yet to Resolve
A Young Historian's Introduction to Worldview uses stories and hands-on activities to graphically illustrate the differences in world views and to further simplify this complex topic. By the end of the course, your young children should be able to answer these questions: Who is man and what is his purpose? Who or what is God? Why is there evil and suffering in the world? What is truth and how is it acquired? Amazing! These are questions most adults have yet to resolve!
Your Child Can Learn to Discuss World Views
A Young Historian's Introduction to Worldview includes a ninety-page workbook and virtually everything you will need to complete the course. Technically, this course can be completed in four lessons, but I think most families would find it more doable to divide each lesson into two to four sessions. It is hard for me to gauge ages for this one. Ten and older should readily grasp the ideas, but I would think that with a slower pace and a bit more repetition and explanation, even a six-year-old could follow the concepts and begin a routine of discerning the world view behind the motivation of all he encounters. Highly, highly recommended.
