In her blog today, Crystal Collier mentions about having to take history in school. I was among those who responded.
In my book, I recalled how I was a bit jealous of those who began college at a university rather that a community college. I did not feel that I was about to embark on the college journey at a community college since I would not be occupying dorm rooms and such that is encountered at universities.
I responded to Crystal's post with a synopsis of what I said above and saw another comment from someone who disliked history in school because there was too much memorization needed, and then there were the dreaded tests. Yes, tests always gave me anxiety. The good thing about memorizing historical facts today is that there will be no more tests afterward.
It's definitely time to teach something new in history, instead of the same stuff all the time.
