myrosiedog, that's fantastic you're going to finish your degree! I hope you do teach children how fun history is (and how important it is). There was one of those studies recently that showed how American kids couldn't point to very many places outside of the U.S. on a world map (and if you asked them to find certain states, you were out of luck). That wouldn't be that surprising for grammar school children...but these were college kids! They couldn't even find Africa or China! Hint: THEY'RE BIG.
