For us to understand what had happened in the past and not by memorizing details of the past. The common misconception of history is that some teachers are likely to let students memorize the names, places, dates of the past and its not that easy to store all that ideas in your mind. I mean, it would be appropriate to let students understand why and how it happened rather than let them memorize..

In order to shape your future will be, you have to look back and contemplate about the significant events of the past. This is where history comes in. history classes isnt intended to stuff your brain with dates, names and other bits of information. It is there to help you see the development of the human society, their culture, diversity, and contribution to our world today. In looking back, you will realize, on one hand, how much we have moved forward and what we still lack, on the other hand. Knowing these will urge you to think critically and assess yourself, your society and your significant role to the development of the race.

yes I have. When I was a kid I wondered why needed to know what happened years ago, now that I am adult I realize that we learn to see how far we've come, the people who made a difference and the mistakes we've made. We also learn customs and beliefs, of other countries and how they can be.really Without history you have no future. You have to know where you've been to know where you are going!
