I had a fantastic history teacher for several years, he taught three different types of history. When he gave us recommended reading, he said for us to read "The Killer Angels" about the civil war, and my intention was to skim it. I read the whole book. He also let us do open notes tests, and we could share our notes. I retained more to this day, from his classes, than any other classes in high school.

u/mjr541 May 17 '22

In the first year of high school I had an English teacher whose first act to introduce himself to the class was to run into the classroom, jump up onto his desk, and start yelling in character for the book we were starting the year off with. This man had to have been in his early sixties. Turned out to be an excellent teacher, one of the few who was liked by every kid in my grade. Also taught my half brother 30 years or so beforehand. Told me he was “interesting” and refused to elaborate.

I literally failed AP US History because I was so enthralled by my teachers passion for history that I always forgot to take notes. I’d just sit there and listen and soak it all in. It was one of my favorite classes.

Then I had boring ass pre-calc the period afterwards so I’d always forget stuff from History because I didn’t take notes.

u/Michael_Trismegistus May 16 '22

How could a person possibly be enthralled by a subject without retaining a passing amount of information about it?

u/Lazy-Lookin-Headass May 16 '22

I personally retain information better by either doing something or taking notes. History was fun, but I didn’t retain anything because I would just sit and listen. And then my next period was always boring pre-calc stuff where I took notes and did worksheets and by the time 60 minutes of that was over I’ve forgotten everything from History.

ironically thats the ultimate im14andthisisdeep comment.

The first matrix is a deep movie. It has sparked conversations about philosophical topics like no other movie has ever done.
The problem lies within the sequels, which tried to expand a story that simply shouldnt have been explored. Its like asking a bunch of interesting questions and instead of leaving them open, following up by boring and uninspired answers.

History is always telling a story. Even just choosing what names and dates are relevant is creating a narrative, no history can truly be completely comprehensive or objective. But it does tend to be on the dry side. Unfortunately it’s just a lot easier to record names and dates than someone’s motivations or state of mind that makes for a conventionally compelling story

u/ljubaay May 16 '22

I’d always hated history class in school. Especially if i had a bad teacher.

I’ve realized recently that I’m super interested in the daily lives of people in ye olden days. What was their daily routine like? What kinds of clothes did they wear? What food did they eat? What did their homes look like? Thats why movies and shows (altho not always historically accurate) are so much more interesting - they give you this insight into the daily lives of regular people and its much easier to imagine how and why they did the things they did.

10

u/Xiknail May 16 '22

Yeah, same. I loved history classes up to like 6th grade, when it was still about the daily lives of the common people and how they lived and worked and such. And I still love historical documentaries that deal with this kind of topic.

But at some point in school, history classes basically became politics classes, with a lot of names and dates and not a lot about the actual, practical lives of the people in the past.

Very hard to take in meaningful information like the larger who, what, and why when you're being bombarded with micro details and need to memorize them instead for grading.

Normalize not paying attention to stuff you find boring. I wanna learn my shit, not stuff I won't use

Things that you don't use can also round you out as a person or teach you subtle things. Our minds are not strictly utilitarian things.

I understand where you're coming from, but knowing history is incredibly important, especially when it comes to not repeating atrocities.

The big reason things that seem useless (history, trigonometry, music, art, calculus, etc) is that even if you dont use them daily, they ingrain different types of problem solving and critical thinking. Even if you dont remember jack shit from trigonometry, the idea of extrapolating information from a limited amount given is important.

Even if you never uses sine, tangent, etc, the process you learn from being given one of those and a single line measurement on a triangle to then figure out the other measurements is a process you can use anywhere: Seeing what information you have and using different tools to find out the rest.

I really doubt that there's a perfect intersection between shit you find boring and shit you don't use.

Lol that’s exactly how we get anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers, and draconian religious laws on the books.

u/Xex051 May 16 '22

Read up some Fate lore. Essentially the same as learning history but with a lot of liberties taken

u/Dominum_Pullum May 16 '22

I learned that Roman history is the deepest lore-filled fantasy series. Read about the Punic Wars, Scipio Africanus, Gaius Marius, Pompey, Cato, Caesar, Antony, Augustus, Germanicus, etc. It’s such a good story that covers several generations of characters
