History Online with Diana Waring

Online History Class with Diana Waring

This fall, I am premiering a world history online course, Napoleon Through MacArthur, for high school homeschool students. Capturing students’ interest so they actively engage in learning, inspiring their motivation to dig deeply, and welcoming their unique contributions to the class are my priorities. And, honestly, I can’t wait!

Working with the Software Research Center at Anderson University for technical assistance, they have helped me design my course utilizing the best technology available to universities. We are collaborating to make this course as fully interactive, curiosity-driven, and creative as the World Empires, World Missions, World Wars curriculum on which it is based.

If your homeschooled student is in high school, and if taking a course from another teacher would provide help to you and your student, then this is a good option. (All three of my kids took at least one course with another teacher during high school, and it was a great experience.) I still believe that there is no substitute for the nurture, the knowing, the interaction that is present between parent and child in homeschooling. Therefore, parents will also have opportunities to be involved in what their students are doing in this course.

Richly relational, deeply educational, broad in scopeIn September, as the author of World Empires, World Missions, World Wars, I will be your student’s “tour guide” and mentor as we venture back into the tumultuous times of the 1800s through the 1950s, giving visual presentations of specific features in the ever changing historic landscape, engaging them in discussion about what they are seeing, answering the questions that will naturally arise, and directing their assignments. We will not only study the major historic events and people (including missions, revivals, and Church history), we will also expand into the cultural elements of the time, such as literature, architecture, art, music and science. Students will have ongoing opportunities to create projects (including group projects) to share with the class—and to learn from one another’s projects. It is going to be richly relational, deeply educational, and broad in scope.

If this resonates with you, I enthusiastically welcome your students to my Napoleon through MacArthur course—where the online learning environment has been designed for them to thrive!

Read the course description, and enroll for the course if you are interested. Class is limited to the first 25 students to sign up.

If you are unfamiliar with my curriculum, here is an endorsement by Dr. David Aikman, Ph.D. historian, former Time Magazine senior correspondent, and author of several books including Jesus in Beijing:

"Diana Waring has written a careful, insightful history of the important developments in Europe and North America from the French Revolution to the beginning of the Cold War. What makes her account important from a Christian worldview is that she weaves in spiritual developments -- revivals, new Christian movements, prayer ministries -- with no false dichotomy between spiritual developments and the actual historical developments of the day. I recommend her work warmly."
