All this talk about history reminds me of a Rob Corddry piece on the Stewart Show where he reported in satirical fashion that to teenagers learning history ranks just above eating a plateful of one’s own shit.
Exaggeration, sure. Point made. An exciting area of human study needs a better rap.
Ah yes, I’m looking forward to student teaching to see just how tough this is going to be.
I never undersand why students [teenagers, kids] would hate history. What is to hate? Yes, there are a lot of details, but that is what makes it so fascinating… Kids like history..they just don’t know it…If you like Lord of the Rings..or those “adventure” games [electronic] you like history…you like a complicated story..:) I hope that made sense..
