Gileskirk/Christendom History course: ! We will use the Gileskirk Humanities curriculum presents DVD lectures by Dr George Grant (www.Kingsmeadow.com) with classroom discussions and assessments. Gileskirk is more than a history course: “It is a study of world culture emphasizing the basic classical approach of moral philosophy, equipping students with tools for a lifetime of learning: a working knowledge of the timetables of history, a background understanding of the great literature classics, a familiarity with the sweep of art, music, and ideas, a worldview comprehension of basic geography, a principle approach to discerning the significance of current events, and an emphasis on a Christian life paradigm. The idea is to study human achievement in context both in terms of its historical and societal sequence and in terms of its providential and cultural importance. Out of this integrated understanding of God’s world every other subject and discipline is formed.”! David Bissett! Cost: $100 !

Since much of Chemistry is math based, students must have either completed or be taking Algebra II concurrently. Students must be committed to getting to class on time each day and keeping up with the work outside of class.



In this course students will be exposed different aspects of the science of Chemistry. The class will meet once a week and will include a review of the chapter, Chemistry problem solving

(Math), and a hands-on lab.

At home, students will be expected to read approximately one chapter of the textbook per week. This may realistically take 1-1.5 hours per day, 4 days per week. Review questions at the end of the chapter are to be answered on the homework sheets and handed in. Weekly quizzes will be

taken in class. Tests will be taken in class at the end of each unit (4-6 chapters). Tests will be modeled after the SAT Chemistry subject tests. Students who do well in this class are encouraged to take the Chemistry SAT II subject test in June.

There will be a summer homework assignment which is due the first day of class. This will help us to complete the textbook, give you a realistic understanding of the type of homework involved, and give me, the teacher, a preview of your reading and math abilities, as well as your ability to follow directions and complete the assignment. Based on this homework, I may suggest a student wait another year before taking Chemistry. I will send this assignment out via email in the beginning of August. Please do not try to do it all the day before the first class.
