Nowasday, many students in my country are very lazy to learn History at school. There are many reasons: History is boring, and it is very difficult to remamber history events. When i was a student, i did n't like History too. What about you?

Hi there... When I was a student I did not like history at all since our teacher wanted us to memorize the names and the dates of many events which makes me crazy!!! Literally!!!LOL...but now that I do nt have to memorize dates, I just read history books I fount it was actually a good books to read, full of story. It is much knowledgeable. Then I started to wonder why our teacher didn't teach it to us that way. It was like she teaches us only on how to memorize things without giving much value of the thought of the story.

I am a teacher myself. I am teaching high school students. For me I think teacher should be creative enough to make the lesson they are teaching fun and enjoyable.

yes, you are right, the teacher must spend more time to make a good lesson to attractively students. If all teachers can make that, students will love the subject that he/she teach!

Hello tamosree, as usual you hate history like other. But it is not your fault. It's a fault of your history teacher who was failed to make interest about history subject. In this matter I agree with @vovandat. Teachers should take different way to make interest about history. Already I said that if you take this like a story hat it's will so easier to remember. I also a science student but my subject combination is botany, zoology and chemistry. So tamosree your subject are so good. But nowadays i am afraid about math. Actual I am not in practice that is the reason. Nice to meet you. Will meet you soon.

I to am not a history buff. I like to read about historical things once in a while, but learning it in school is totally different. I find it much more entertaining if I learn it on my time and in my own way. But history is very interesting. It shows you how things have changed in this world. History is also in our lives. I am sure you saw things or did things in your life when you were young and things are much more different now.

Well, I never said I was good in history. I also said I am no history buff. It is interesting only when I am in the mood for history. I think I did okay in history when I was in school. But I doubt that I would do good today. It has been many years since I was in school.

History is always interesting to me. It is true that it is very difficult to remember the exact date and year of the history events. But history was one of my favourite subjects in school and still now it is my passion. When I go through any topic history, I can visualize it before my eyes.

I find history to be a rather fascinating subject but there are just many people out there that do not share that fascinating for the things that happened. Yet those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Obviously it appears that some people in power have not learned from history, because they are rather dooming the people they they serve by repeating the bad mistakes of the past. I think that history is one of those subjects where it really depends on the teacher. I have been blessed with some really awesome history teachers that just made history come alive. And there were a couple of teachers where made it about as exciting as watching paint dry. Of course, that would be the case for many subjects right in school.

I share this sentiment. History is really hard to teach, especially if your students really do not appreciate it. But if a teacher can encourage the students to look and experience beyond a thick books and boring details., then people will most likely relate to it better than the subject being preached.

Yes, you are rght! History is important, but with many students History is very booring subject. If there are have many good History teachers can make History alive, it can attractively students.

I like history, but it's not easy to hate it, judging from the way it is taught most times. Since there is limited time to teach and learn the subject, it is often limited to a list of historical dates, places and names. History can be very interesting if it is approached by learning how people lived in different times, and if we understand how people were thinking. But it requires a lot of reading and explanation to understand what and why was happening. Not to mention that school books show only one writer's interpretation.

I didn't like history when I was student. Our teacher was always in a bad mood and she showed no enthusiam whatsoever. It was obvious that she didn't enjoy the lessons, and it was not very inspiring. The lessons were pretty boring and I didn't enjoy them. Today I have become interested in history and I often read historical books. I like to read about the history of my country. I recently borrowed some historical books at the library and they describe life in the Middle Age, life around 1600, life in 1800, life in between World War 1 and World War 2 etc. I enjoyed those books a lot, and I don't hate history anymore.

No, I hate that stuff. Partially because my history teachers up till now are all boring and I can't feel any enthusiasm from them but mostly because there are just too many things to memorize.

I never liked History class. At that time, I just don't really see how that would help me in life. Even with a very passionate teacher who tells history likes it was his story. But, if its my husband who talks about what he knows in the world history realm, I find it really interesting to listen to. I even raised questions and also add a few insights. He loves world history and talks about it like it was part of his life story.
• Vietnam

Oh, i think so, at shool, we must learn more and more History events and teachers ask us remember more and more information. If your husband loves history, you can listen his story and increase your knownledge about History.

Hi, Vovandat, when I was in the high school I hated history because of my teacher. She wanted us to remember all the date and facts and her lessons were boring. She caught me once when I was not prepared to answer and I had a lot of troubles with her. But years after this I watched Discovery channel's films about the Second World War. I learned a lot of things about the war on the Western front. We hadn't learned this in school because my country was part of the ex Soviet bloc. It turned out that history was interesting for me. So teachers are very important for everyone of us.

I love history always did. Perhaps I was lucky with a teacher who was a great story teller. He made history come alive (esp. the middle ages). I love any kind of story (fairy tales are during the middle ages as well). Without history it's hard to understand how we became what we are. I think it's up to yourself how boring it is, what you make out of it. History is way more as just the history of your country.

You have a good teacher, because he can made History alive. If there are more and more History teachers can made History alive, there are many students like History

I love history because I will know what has happened, what my country used to be. From history we will learn the mistake. I know it's not easy to remember things but if we listen and read a lot, we will remember things easily.
