History is the key to understanding war, revolution, famine, and social upheaval of today’s world. History does not just recite facts and names but involves analysis and understanding. History is the sum total of the human experience, and that experience serves as a mirror reflecting today’s events. When studying history, students learn how to read critically, develop an analytical argument, and write persuasively.
