Basically, I care about people <3
History is the only class I like this semester, but only because of the teacher. He just makes it so engaging and interesting! He doesn’t just give you a list of events and names, he puts faces on those names and tells how they felt and what they believed. Like today he read aloud true court transcripts of testimonies of teenagers who had worked in mills in the 1800’s as children, telling how they worked 14 hours a day and were beaten by their overseers. I was nearly in tears!
He tells the lesson like a gripping story and gets so into it! You can tell he’s passionate about what he teaches. I don’t think a lot of teachers feel that way about what they’re teaching. It’s really an enjoyable class that always grabs and holds my attention, though I nearly always leave feeling very sad.
And that is because he talks about topics like slavery and child labor not in a detached “that’s just history” way, but in a way that makes you feel something. He speaks about it like we would today talk about current issues like child abuse or all of the genocide going on. He makes you feel something about the topics, makes you relate to the people who lived during those time periods. He shows that they were people, and that we should care because we’re people too, and must learn from the past.
