I remember when I was in middle school, I was required to take at least one History class prior graduation. I didn't do well in History because it wasn't my cup of tea, which I didn't want to learn about the Civil War nor World War I. However, I didn't see the point to have History included as part of the curriculum because it didn't really help me in the long run. Is History part of a required class in your school?

Yes, History was a required class in school. I had to take it till I was a sophomore. I did fairly okay but I never liked the subject. Always thought it was too dull and boring, but maybe that was because of my teacher.

I think history is a very interesting course to study and i love the fun in making research and uncovering the truth about certain things.

Sad to say, but here in our country history is a required subject in every course no matter what it is. And our professor in our history subject do always remind us that we should be thankful of our history, because without them we are nothing, without them we are not enjoying this freedom specially here in our country where we are colonized before but thankfully my fellow country men who is also a hero of our country fight for our freedom that is why we should continue their legacy so their sacrifices will pay off.
