Teaching Quote Out of Context #2

Student: Sir?

Teacher: Yes?

Student: You know everything we’ve been looking at? The Treaty of Versailles… The League of Nations…

Teacher: I do, yes.

Student: Did it really happen?

Teacher (passively): Yes. History as a study of things in the past.

Student (nodding): Okay cool, thank you sir.

[Student goes back to work, but sees their friend staring at them open-mouthed.]

Student (unwavering): It was a 50-50 question, so I had to ask.

If you do not ask, you do not learn.

I am a long term Gamer, a full-time History Teacher and a part-time geek. I enjoy writing about the positive aspects of gaming, especially when it comes to education. My posts are sometimes nostalgic, occasionally irrelevant, largely meant to provoke further discussion. I'll sometimes punctuate these whimsical ramblings with a random comment on gaming and/or teaching.
