A Comparative History Curriculum to Accompany the novel, The Brotherhood of the Scroll, this course is designed to introduce you to the history, geography, and biblical references of the exile of Judah to Babylon, and how we can learn and apply this knowledge to present day events.
Clash of the Superpowers uses the parallels in the geopolitics of 600 B.C. and compares them to events happening in today’s world to engage the student in a conversation about geography, history, politics and religion. If we expect young people to be engaged in the process of self-government, we must awaken their innate curiosity to see how all these seemingly dry subjects relate to their daily lives. This course will allow you to help students explore the history of 600 B.C. when Babylon and Egypt vied for world domination, and apply the lessons learned to the modern clash of the superpowers.
