Bill Gates is funding a new kind of History course for American High Schools and Colleges alike - how this could be a genuinely brilliant way to approach and learn the history of the world both culturally and scientifically. For many of us (myself included), the traditional approach to learning scientific and mathematical concepts has always been very difficult. It’s not that we’re not interested (or, at least, I am) in learning these concepts, it’s just that I have always struggled with the ways in which they are taught. But history is a subject I always excelled in. Integrating these disciplines with history - how the world developed and evolved - creates something much more tangible. This is something I can relate to, something I can understand. It’s not so much broad as it is inclusive. It’s a long article, but 100% worth reading. So just read it. And, if this course is offered at your school - and you’re like me, someone who has always struggled in math and science, but yearned to understand the concepts - take advantage of it. I know I hope to.
