12th Grade A New Nation Overview

Number of Credits

The best way to determine credits is to log how much time your student spends working on a given course. Check with your state laws, but a 1-credit course generally requires 120-180 hours of work, and a ½ credit course generally requires 60-90 hours of work. With Comprehensive lesson plans, your student can easily earn 1 Bible credit, 1 math credit, 1 history credit, 1 science credit, 1 language arts credit, ½ art credit, and 1 music credit.

Supplementing

What happens if your child needs more material to meet a credit requirement? Choose some of the themes from the lessons and get books from the library for your child to browse. Videos are also a terrific option. Visit museums and nature centers.

Themes

In Bible, you and your student will study biblical worldview and missionary stories. In math, he or she will learn and master the principles of calculus. History/social studies covers the settlement of America, the French and Indian Wars, the Revolutionary War, American government, and the War of 1812. Science emphasizes histology, physiology, and body systems. Language arts teaches the writing process, elements of writing, personal writing, subject writing, creative writing, persuasive writing, academic writing, research writing, workplace writing, reading skills, study skills, speaking skills, thinking skills, viewing skills, and editing as well as an appreciation for Early American literature. In art, your child will be exposed to fine arts and learn to create art with pencils, paints, and markers. Music covers music’s connection to history, culture, literature, and art.

Flexibility

This program is designed to meet your needs. It is set up with a 36-week, 180-day lesson plan. In the last few weeks, you will find fewer activities so that you can catch up or explore other areas of interest. This program seeks to give you the tools to meet your child’s educational needs.

Record Keeping

Purchase a large three-ring binder and one divider for each subject. File written pieces, artwork, notes, tests, and quizzes. If you would like to add more content, pick a topic and help the student write about it. Include pictures of completed projects and experiments. Consider videoing plays, activities, or speeches. Check with your state to see what is expected for recording attendance and learning.
