a long time ago...

I don't remember much of what I learned in high school. Let me rephrase that. I don't remember much of what I studied in my classes in high school. The social aspects are a completely different story. What I probably remember the least is Canadian history. Pretty sad really, since I love this country and am very proud to be Canadian. Just don't ask me when Jacques Cartier first landed or who the 14th Prime Minister was. I won't be able to tell you.

So I was listening to the latest episode of Quirky Nomands, one of my favourite podcasts. I can absolutely guarantee that if history was taught this way in school, you'd have a lot more kids paying attention. I know I would have.
