I don’t teach Social Studies. I don’t know what that is. Like the words “diet” and “discipline”, “history” has gotten a bad rap because it has been so badly abused. History is awesome. It is not all about dates and battles. It can show you where you’ve been; it can predict where you are going. It can make you question your dearly held beliefs. It introduces you to ideas that you would not otherwise have. It is a way to travel the world.
