The Worldview & Cultural Literacy Course

a free online course based on the Choices We Make cards & booklet for those of high school (11th grade) age or greater wanting to:

1) make sense out of “the confusion of existence” / see “the big picture”

2) better understand words / beliefs / background behind choices we make

In a metaphorical sense, a goal is summarized in this admonition:

As you shop in “The Reality Marketplace” avoid spending your “reality cash” too early, before you have seen everything.”

The course can be formally completed in an intensive one year full 52 weeks, in a more leisurely two-year (four 13 week sessions) format, or in any other way of your choosing. Based on the 104 worldview themes paired to make 52 choices—where (we suggest) each week you focus on a different choice—everything you need is available online. This includes the 104 world view theme web pages— including thousands of “More to Explore” links—and the 52 choices web pages—including the “Related Words, Beliefs, Background” pages from the Project Worldview Cultural Literacy Encyclopedia. Altogether this has over 1500 entries with descriptions totaling nearly 90,000 words. Typically two ten question self tests—designed to not only test your understanding but to guide your learning and promote critical thinking—are provided for each choice, with (altogether) nearly 1100 questions.

Each week, after reading the theme descriptions for each choice (found both online or on the cards / in the booklet), you will read the “Related Words, Beliefs, Background” encyclopedia entries for the choice, take a first self test, review any wrong answers and encyclopedia entries as needed, use the “More to Explore” links to surf the web to glean additional understanding in a real world context, take a second self test, and finally again review any wrong answers and encyclopedia entries as needed. Each 13 week unit will end with a unit exam.* The course will end with your using either this booklet or a deck of 52 Choices We Make playing cards, and recording selections you make on a scorecard you’ll find online. These data will provide input and enable your completing the “Choices We Make Worldview Analysis for One Person” computer program. This will give a  % correlation between your worldview and various “generic” worldviews. Another routine will point out internal contradictions in your worldview based on your choices.
