When you are researching something, there is always the question that you have in the back of your mind, and that is, how do you know? There was a history teacher that would spend an hour on a history lecture for his students, the information may seem valuable, but there is always the question that begs, “how do you know”. There is really no excuse to not have the information that you need because information is everywhere, but it may not be accurate. A lot of what has actually transpired throughout history, does in face, come down to point of view.
- The complexity and range of knowledge available these days is broad, and it can be hard to keep up with it.
- Being able to look at past events(history) from more than one point of view helps greatly with understanding.
- Being able to sort through the viewpoints and compare them with known facts and contexts help a person to learn well.
“Yet, this is why history is important. Reality its complex. To understand what actually happened, a view of the events from above is critical.”
