Calculating High School Credit for History:

HSLDA recommends spending approximately 150 hours on a subject to qualify for high school credit. This is how Dave Raymond’s classes generally break down to achieve that credit. Some students will spend more time in some areas and some will spend less, but there is clearly enough different types of work to qualify for full high school credit:

Americn-History-Credit-Chart

* The reader includes 400 pages of original historical materials. It increases in length as the year progresses. For example, Part 1 is 150 pages and Part 2 is 250 pages. If additional reading is desired for older students, we include recommendations for that.
**If a parent desires to do two or more thesis papers for older students, that is perfectly acceptable and will only increase the amount of time spent in the class.
