*Use a basic college-prep text and add additional activities to “level-up” the credit. In our homeschool community, homeschool high schoolers earn the coveted Honors designation when they add 135 extra hours of related activities (be sure to include a key on the transcript that will explain the way Honors credits are earned). This is a rigorous requirement, but that is what an Honors credit is all about.

7Sisters’ History and Philosophy of the Western World is a World History curriculum that adds sparkle to the transcript AND each chapter includes meaningful activities for leveling-up from College Prep to Honors. My homeschool high schoolers have enjoyed the additional activities. The papers that they wrote for some of the enrichment assignments also counted as some of their required writing for their Language Arts credit that year.

*Use a basic college-prep text and add 16 additional “real books” such as biographies, non-fiction, even a little well-written fiction can count.

Here are a few of the books that my teens have included on their leveling-up booklist. They also read books on the suggested booklist included in History and Philosophy of the Western World.

Our umbrella school allowed them to count their Honors-level World History reading list toward their required Language Arts reading requirement.

Creating an Honors-level World History credit by meaningful extra hours or meaningful reading is a meaningful way to get homeschool high schoolers engaged in actually LEARNING World History.
