    BIG Snoozer....I think history teachers TRY to make their classes unbearably boring....


    :)


    The History Channel is pretty cool, though.

    Nah.. They make it pretty boring.. Maybe it's just the "textbook" end of it.. The History channel IS pretty cool, and it's probably because there's a visual to go with it.

    Depends on the teacher, some people can make anything sound intersting, while others would make better sleep aids. :huh:

    History teachers don't understand why the kids aren't as interested in the subject as they are themselves, yet most seem to lack the skills necessary to draw the student into the subject so that they can see it as a story, like the History Channel does. It is a rare and pleasant experience to be in a class with a History teacher that has that ability.

    I think that was my point... You've got a bad teacher, when the entire class is half asleep, the teacher gets irritated, and says "If you find this class so boring, why not just toss your books out the open window, and leave.", and the class does.

    It's a case of schools hiring 'educated'...not 'educaTORS'.
