Do you hate social studies in middle school?
it is really comfusing and i dont even know why we r supposed to know it!! we are learning about dead people!! I have nothing against dead people but social studies shouldnt be soooo boring!!
If you look at it in the respect that the people who made the history you are currently learning about were just like you and me. Most of them were normal people, some of them just kids or young adults when they fought in wars and helped to build governments.
If you look hard enough, you’ll find parts that are VERY interesting.
There’s a great book out there called…. U.S. History Uncensored: What your textbook never told you
There’s so much that’s not being taught in schools, it’s a shame you’ll never find out any of the juicy stuff until you are in college.
take the civil rights for example. we want to try and prevent the bad things from happening again, but just like african americans weren’t treated fairly look at today with all of the non straight people. history is repeating itself all over again. people are becoming judgemental about people who aren’t straight.
we have social studies to try and prevent history from repeating itself but look at today’s world. it is.
i did have the most boring teacher in the world too for geography. you just kind of have to live with it and try your best to pay attention. if you don’t understand something, ask. =]
