A large amount of my understanding of the world comes from playing strategy games. Unfortunately history courses here really only cover Australian history, which is not exactly riveting, and either the Cold War or Communism in general during the first half of the 20th century. Very strong focus on essay writing with a disappointing lack of actual content.

What you need to do is get into reading military and political histories. Cannot tell you the wealth of insight you gain from both. My understanding of the present is largely based on the conclusion of World War I as it shaped the politics that lead to World War II and the problems with terrorism we face today. (mainly from unresolved border disputes and from the ideals of Woodrow Wilson's League of Nations and fourteen points).

It's a standard course here in Australia, but in the final three or four years of High School you get to choose your own units and with geography being kind of boring as shit very few people take it up. History courses will teach you all the cool political stuff anyway.

I take it you find history fascinating then? I agree with the boring as shit bit about georgraphy. It really can be boring. I rather learn where places are on maps for referencing when I read history books.

Is geography still offered as a course, or has it been taken out from the national/state curriculum/s entirely?
User avatar #238 - straggler (05/27/2014) [-]
I BELIEVE it's an option in some public and private schools. I attended private school and I don't think it was offered there due to lack of funding. It IS offered at the college level however. It's unfortunate that geography is no longer manditory

Probably because it's Pennsylvania...I have the misfortune to be located in an area of the state where it's been known to downpour without a cloud in the sky.....
