In my school system I remember getting very cursory introductions to history at lower grade levels. Probably we were studying US history in 4th grade because I think that year we took a field trip to Gunston Hall. 5th grade I believe was Virginia history. 6th grade world history (with a heavy bias toward Western Civ including Egypt and the Middle East which is a part of Western Civ). My 6th grade teacher made us memorize every country and capital in the world but that was unusual. 7th was either U.S. or Virginia again. 8th was Civics. 9th was World Civilization (again heavily biased toward Western Civ especially Europe). 10th was US history. 11th was Government. In 12th I opted to take AP European History (college level course, not required).
Anyway I don't think Mr. Snow came up in any of those classes.
At secondary school (high school) level we didn't do hardly any British history. We did the industrial revolution and 19th century Ireland but other than that we did Russian Tsars, Russian revolution, 1920s America, unification of Italy, cold war Berlin, Spanish civil war, Hitler's rise to power and both world wars (which I know Britain was very involved in but it was taught more from the perspective of Germany and France aside from a stop off in the blitz).
Dont ask me the order (all I remember is local in elementary school and romans in middle school)> I didnt take history as a subject so had it only in primary school and the first year of high/middle school. I think that corresponds to 3th grade up to 7th grade. but maybe only the last two years of primary school, really cant remember anything below those (and really only the last one)
Ow yea napolean.. cause pyramids romans and stoneage were stuff that would ve interested me anyway, but I am sure I wouldnt have looked up napoleon as an 8 yo, so I must been taught about that one.
mainly local history, but also Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and about the Mayans, Aztecs, Incas and did a bit on Romans.
World War one and two, the Great Depression, Slavery in the US and history of China.
More about World war one and two, the opium wars, russian revolution and the cold war.
Then I dropped history for my last two years to do geography instead; guess that's why i like this site :)
Might be silly, but only NOW I realise you might have misread it as sir. I allready thought miss was a strange counterpart of sire...
Kill Devil Hills: not a city
Btw, you misspelled "speech" in the MLK question. :)
This was harder to make than I thought it would be so I got bored and stopped at 15 answers. Sorry.
(like; you had a lot of beers... "no I didnt, I only had 12 beers and also one coca cola!")
History (after the 15th century) Isnt my thing. History/polictics and sports ( unless it is a general description, like which sport has penalties) ore my worst quiz subjects.
Best is science and words. (And I think in english science includes biology and nature right? And maths, for me science means formulas and experiments, so basicly physics and chemistry.)
