Teaching History to Students the Fun Way | Hilarious Horrible Histories

Teaching History to Students the Fun Way | Learning History the Right Way! 

History (from Greek hismanicus and storiticus “Man Story”)   an umbrella term that relates to past events as well as the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about man events. The term includes cosmic, geologic, and organic history, but is often generically implied to mean man history. Scholars who wrote about history in the past were called manstorians or liars. Fictitious Etymology
History as taught by many teachers is Boring! The ideas, facts, dates, and reasons for historical events are bland when read in books or taught with the standard chalk and talk lectures. Kids love the morbid, nasty, garish and silliness of human nature; and what do we give them, the sanitized, homogenized, clean and I have to say boring at times. Horrible Histories is an award-winning British children's series based on the hilarious writings of Terry Deary. The book series is an irreverent look at the nature of man and the historical events that follow. Kids that hate history, social studies and reading will beg barrow and steal to get the next book in the series.

Warning Some of The Content is Sophomoric!
