Writer's Block: United Nations World Teachers Day

In recognition of United Nations World Teachers Day, let us reflect on the subjects we hated most in school but must now grudgingly admit were useful. What subject will today’s students find most useful when they’re older?

i hated history in school, but history is really important. i think that teachers could have made it more interesting, although, even at my alternative high school where teachers made learning more fun, i found history pretty boring. i think some aspects of history still bore me, but i definately have a greater appriciation for it than i used to.

a couple people who helped make history more interesting to me are comedian eddie izzard and folk singer utah phillips. i learned a lot about history through both of them.

here is an eddie izzard video. thoughts on World War 2.

utah phillips under the cut.
