For and against studying hard for that subject- history

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


There are many subjects at school that need to be alert and able to retain as much information as possible. Have you ever thought that some will not use you at all or would it be easier if you didn't have to be so readable?
      History is one of those topics that the world wonders if it is worth studying so much.
      To begin with, it is history that gives the people an identity. It shows what our forefathers have done to get our country to the stage it is nowadays. It gives us reasons to feel proud and lucky that we were born where it was intended. But why should we know when there were wars or who ruled the country in a certain period of time? Well, it is obvious that all this shows how much the past has survived and who is responsible for success or failure. It is good to know when and why there  ............. were wars or revolutions, so we will know how to avoid such crucial situations. In addition, history presents another perspective on life among citizens and points out that inequality in society has led to more social upheaval, so young people will know how to control the situation among people. Plus, this field offers young people a chance to seek more, given that the world's well-known history is not always true or complete, so young people will want to access careers like archaeologists, historians, archivists, journalists, etc.
        On the other hand, if you aren't  passionate about this subject, it is quite difficult to remember all the dates and all the historical personalities who took part and who have made victories for the country. Plus, the way this subject is taught is an outdated one that doesn't stimulate young students to give more time to preparation for the.............  subject matter. And then you need to discuss how all the information studied in history will help you if you aren't active in the field of research. Not very much, because if you move away from this subject, you will find it difficult to find moments in which you can use the smallest details of battles or events of centuries ago.
           All things considered, history is a subject to be studied in order for young people to know what it was and not to repeat the same mistakes and to avoid social events that could be more than harmful to the world. History also presents another face of the people. Plus, it offers a field that allows curious people to dig up to the oldest things people can think of today. But it also has to be considered as a school matter that contains many information that isn't easy to remember or understand. So it must be taught in a pleasant way, but that is as complete as possible because young students can keep in mind as many as possible.

I completely agree with you. Something that a lot of people don't understand is that we need to know our history in order to know our society, and to know what works and what doesn't when it comes to the consequences of certain events or initiatives. It is true that some details, such as dates, are hard to remember and sometimes useless, and also the way history is thought in schools is not the most attractive; but all in all I think that we need to know our past in order to know our identity as a society and what to do with it.



Maybe you are right and not all we learn at school is that important for our degree or University studies. But as for me, each subject has its utility and by combining all of them you gather knowledge and get a panoramic view of this world. Maybe genetics seems to be not that useful to a programmer and the causes of the Word War II change nothing in a scientist life, but all of them help you in improving your way of thinking and making right decisions for your future. For example, my French teacher liked Maths at school and the logic of solving problems helped him to understand the logic of grammar in sentences. What about history, it's not the date which is important. To understand it, you need to know people and try to recognize the past events in daily life, because history is repeating. This subject always shows us how people interconnected since their existence on this Planet and it proved that a country needs “socializing” to survive, just like a human being. We don't only find out who won the war, who died in that period or how many kids Ferdinand I had. We learn about the terrifying number of people who were killed without a reason, about the way they were manipulated and had lost their freedom. That’s what history teaches us, helping people to analyse things from a different point of view and to avoid making the same mistakes our predecessors suffered from. It doesn't need a hard work, just a bit of attention and interest.

Of course history has it s own benefits for example it develops your rhetorical skills, but this is not matter that we have to study constantly, despite the fact we do this.In foreign countries students are studying local history, while Romanians people have to learn about other countries involved historical events .I tent to believe that history mast to be studied in the faculty of history.)
