American Students and History

I am currently working on a post about Sacrament Rock in Barnstable, but this video arrived in my email thanks to a student of mine. It was pretty scary, but not that surprising. Sometimes it seems like teaching is a real uphill battle. I wonder if the result would be the same if a random group of adults were asked the same questions. If that were the be the case, our country is in a whole lot of trouble. 

Additionally, I wonder why questions regarding the American Revolution were defined as “trivia.” To me, this type of information does not seem trivial at all. It is at the heart and core of why we are a sovereign country.  Anyway, take a look.
