Welcome to "Hook Date" Old Testament and World History

This course if for students 12 and older.  Students who have participated in the Well-Educated Heart program will now have a reservoir of stories about the countries of the world.  This course will help students organize their stories in a time line and add to their knowledge for studying Old Testament and World History in greater depth.  

The "hook-date" method is a great way organize historical facts and stories. Students are encouraged to memorize the hook dates with their key personalities and dates at the beginning of this course.  They will be amazed at how easy it is for all the stories to fall into place with these hook-dates in mind.
