Every Lesson is a history lesson.
Every skill and every fact is a story of curiosity, necessity, discovery. History is full of more than the movement of people and the decisions of kings. Literature can spring from philosophies which in turn may rise from scientific discovery, itself a likely product of mathematical innovation. Languages reflect the geographical borders people inhabit and describe, perhaps even prescribe, the art of that population. When we say we’re more geared for humanities than the sciences or mathematics, we’re missing out on the human stories behind those essential subjects. When we prefer their skills and facts to the stories that produced them, we’re missing out on the connective tissue of our societies, narrative. In fact, both narrative and skill are necessary for us to employ our education with knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
