WHY STUDY HISTORY????
Transcript of WHY STUDY HISTORY????
Become an informed citizen.
Become a better critical thinker.
Learn from the mistakes of the past.
If you don’t know history, you don’t know your world or your culture.
History is story time all the time!
History is who we were, who we are and who we will be.
Individuals can impact history... sometimes for the worst...
Luckily, history is fun.
That’s because history is all about the story.
Hollywood loves history!
Ok, what about TV?
• Come on this is easy…
• We even get our own channel!
• Is there a math channel? Nope!
• ELA channel? No way.
• Science? well ...
II. HOW DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE PAST?
I. WHY STUDY HISTORY??
If no one can tell us about these distant times then we need some evidence...
Putting a story together from archeology is like doing a big puzzle without any visual clues.
Aren't those people all dead??
It was soooo long ago!
History has nothing to do with me!
History is OUR story... with real heroes, villains, and adventures.
The past informs our everyday lives...
"The farther you look back, the farther you can see ahead." -Henry Ford
Older people can tell us stories of the times long ago when they were kids...
what about very, very old times ???
Evidence could include written records:
books, letters, maps
Well, what if I don’t like movies,
I only like video games...
In the earliest times there were no written records, however, there are other types of useful evidence to help us understand the past.
We find evidence of the past by uncovering objects in the ground...
“Ah yes, the past can hurt, but as I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.” -Rafaki
