alt Restoring America's Biblical Foundations

Teaching the Mighty Works of God

Lynn Meier

How important is the History program in establishing a student's philosophy of history and government? How can the teacher direct young students in identifying God's Providence in their history lessons? Can young children understand history in the light of Biblical principles?

This workshop will address the answers to these questions. Using the Chain of Christianity as the foundation of the Elementary History program, the teacher can assist the students in mastering a knowledge of America's Christian history. Direction will be given for preparing solid history lessons which teach ideas and principles, rather than just facts and dates. Specific examples of student work which promotes reasoning from principles and ideas will be shown.
