I wanted to thank STEPS personally because switching over to Steps for my son has really changed our lives. I know that sounds over the top, but we have had a rough year with him. We have always homeschooled but this year chose a virtual academy because I was tired of spending a fortune on curriculum and still feeling unsatisfied. He started having major issues and we were on edge all the time. Earlier this year we pulled him and a friend had recommended Steps so we thought we would give it a try. HE LOVES IT!! We haven’t fought over school since we started and he even will talk about what he has read and thought about when we are just out and about. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  -  S.S.D., Homeschool Parent
History for Step 3 students, ages 9-10 who read fairly well, and older students still developing literacy.  

One of the richest periods in all history. The amazing story of Jesus Christ and the birth of Christianity, and the similarly amazing tale of Mohammed and the birth of Islam, two great forces which compete for the soul of the world to this day. Two great religions are born, even as Rome triumphs and then finally fails under a succession of Emperors who create one of the most powerful empires ever known, only to at last see it crumble.

The course is focused around the first Newberry Prize award-winning children's book, Van Loon's The Story of Mankind . Those sections of the book required for study are included in the course.

The course specializes, as do all STEPS courses, in developing the students understandings and ability to think and form their own ideas and opinions. Additionally, as with all our history courses, this one is structured to increase the student’s vocabulary and understanding of geography, as well as of history.

19 lesson plans, plus two tests and answer guides.

Concepts covered in this course include:

  • The story of Jesus Christ
  • The birth of Christianity
  • The Fall of Rome
  • Barbarians at the gates of Rome
  • The rise of the Catholic Church in Europe
  • How Rome became the center for Catholicism
  • The life of Mohammed
  • The birth of Islam
  • How Mohammed brought the Arab people together
