Why Study History?
I have a sign in my classroom which asks why students should study history and it is one of the first exercises I ask my students to ponder. But I have never been able to vocalize it as nicely as AP World guru Peter Stearns does here. Included in his reasons are because it provides identity, allows us to analyze evidence, is good citizenship, helps us understand morality and more.
