Should you take this course?
“I am an 81 year old grandma in the midst of taking the Principle Approach to Government course using Skype, with Mr. Ben Gilmore. My 16 year old grandson is taking the same course. If you are into homeschooling, or interested in the history of the Constitution, this is what you need to know about the course.
“You will need two large books with which many homeschoolers are familiar: THE CHRISTIAN HISTORY OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; CHRISTIAN SELF-GOVERNMENT, Compiled by Verna M. Hall; and TEACHING AND LEARNING AMERICA’S CHRISTIAN HISTORY, Developed by Rosalie J. Slater. This course is strong in character development, and gets to the very basic foundation of understanding God’s Hand in Human History.
“The course consists of twenty-four 75 minute classes (mine is twice a week) and about 4 hours a week study. I found I put in much more time because of interest.
“I would like to see this course as a pre-requisite for all who want to be involved in homeschooling. But why stop there? It would do wonders for our Public School System, character building for all our youth, and in our Higher Education System for any person who desires to be a teacher.” [Cora R.]
And another – –
“This course will challenge your intellect and touch your heart as you explore principles of American government–both civil and self (personal). You will acquire a Biblical world view as Ben Gilmore, a world-class Master Teacher, guides you through America’s Christian history. Meet some of our country’s founding fathers and those who influenced them, like Montesquieu, Locke, Blackstone, Bradford and Adams). Learn the truth about what it means to be an American Christian before it is too late. Then ask the Lord to show you His role for you in His story.” [Cindy S. a home school mom]
Principles of American Government – A three month online course – Tuition $195.
The next course begins Monday, January 6, 2014. Prospective students should discuss the course with me and locate text books well before that date.
American Christian Academy (ACA) will gladly acknowledge five high school credits toward American Government earned by ACA students who receive no less than a C grade. Be sure to state on the Report Card that “Mr. Gilmore of ACH Study Groups was the teacher / tutor for this course & include a copy of the ACH report card.”
