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.
