Alright STEM Academy enthusiasts, let's talk history!
It never fails that at least once, and I mean at the very least, I have a student who asks the age old questions: "Why do I need to know what happened two hundred years ago... Why is this important... Why should I care?"
The answer to those questions is simple: it's why our world is the way it is today. History is why you have cell phones. History is why you have the privilege of asking those questions. History is why you get to have an education. History is why every single thing today, is the way it is. Without history, our world would simply not exist.
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION:
Is everyone going to like learning about all aspects of history... No!
However, my absolute main objective when teaching history is for every student to develop a love of history.
You may not enjoy learning about our founding fathers, or how our constitution was formed, but you may enjoy learning about the many wars that helped form our country. You may not care about the election of 1860 but you might find it interesting to learn about President Lincoln's assassination.
The point is, find some area of history that you enjoy and never stop learning.
