11th/12th Grade Western Civilization II

Primary Text:

Western Civilization by Jackson Spielvogel

Supplementary Reading:

The Law

This course begins where Western Civilization I leaves off (with a little review), although the two classes do not need to be taken in order. This course will focus on the history of modern Europe from 1715 AD to the present. It will cover history, politics, art, music, mass culture, family life, religion, philosophy, and current events. Christian worldview will be integrated into the study of history. We will be using Western Civilization, Vol. II, Sixth Edition or Western Civilization Combined Volume, Sixth Edition, by Jackson Spielvogel as our primary text. Outside reading and writing assignments will be assigned.
