History seems so segmented the way it is taught in regular school. What I would like is a whole Earth approach...like we base the history around the year and find out what is going on around the globe.
Much of American history is influenced by what happened in England and Europe, for that matter, and you cannot get a good grasp of history in general without studying the older centuries before our younger "America" ones.
Plus, I never realized how barbaric the "barbarians" truly were until I read a book about Ghenghis Khan - super fascinating btw! - and I had to keep reminding myself that other nations were so much more advanced at that same time.
Anyway, what do you think of this approach? Any curricula like this, or do I make my own?
