Human Development from a Christian Worldview Second Edition is a popular Social Science elective course for many homeschool high schoolers! This is because they learn fun and practical stuff like:
- Why do two year olds say “no”?
- Or: Why do grandparents tell the same story over and over?
- And: Why do teens think about themselves so much?
These are Human Development questions answered in this downloadable etext.
What is a Human Development curriculum in high school and why should your homeschooling high schooler have this on his/her transcript?
- Human Development is the study of God’s wonderful design for people as they grow from conception through old age. It explains how people change physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally throughout each stage of life.
- It is a one credit high school health credit.
- Human Development is the perfect course for any teen that has to interact with others and/or plans to grow up, get married, have a family, (and maybe take care of his aging parents someday).

What are homeschool parents saying about Human Development from a Christian Worldview?
“7sisters curriculum has been exactly what we needed for our high school students. We have a freshman, sophomore & a junior in our homeschool high school. We used the human development course as part of our health curriculum. All three of our students took it together. Two of them pursued the honors level and our oldest chose to follow the basic level. It held all of their attention and they all learned so much from it. It allowed for honest discussions and left room for exploration. They were all able to choose activities that fit their own personal learning styles.” – A.C.
“Wonderful book! My daughter has very much enjoyed learning from it for her health credit in high school. She has enjoyed many of the enrichment activities.” – B.E.
“The Human Development course is absolutely awesome! I think it should be required for all students.” – M.B.
