What is the history? You can say that it is boring lesson, which based only on facts and dates and in every lesson you wanted to sleep and in 11th grade it was like nightmare because you need to know so many facts in order to prepare UNT. . We
have to forget about the system of UNT when we are talking about the history because this test stop our analyzing skills. We can know the date of the battle but we cannot analyze why it happened and which was consequences of it. We learn history to understand the effects of certain events in the modern world and it is one of the way to understand people psychology. Mainly knowing of history is our intelligent.

Have you ever think that before your appearance to our world were your ancestors your parents grandparents and etc. and your ancestral line has been interrupted since the first man on earth till todays the day. Why we should ignore the period when our ancestors lived? It is not right because we show disrespect for era where they lived and so to their way of live. We should know our history in order to respect and remember our ancestors

If we are talking about history in today's classes, then I can tell from personal experience that history classes were one of the most boring classes. There are two reasons why, first of all books were written extremely hard to understand language so that students did not want to even open a book. Second one is that for the most part teachers make history to seem like a difficult subject, which is why student associate history with something not very exciting and pleasant. It is very important to present history in interesting and exciting way or else students will not even bother to study history.

Yes, some kind of teachers can make the wrong impression of their lesson. However we can judge the way of education but the information is more important. We have to understand that Without past there would be no present, and without present
there will be no future this chain can be represented as an axiom and history is a link in the chain. Let's consider some live situation which will prove you that knowing of history is very important for modern man. We should learn our own
national history because if we take for example Englishman who knows his national history and Kazakh who
do not know his own history the conversation will be awful for Kazakh guy because after the good explanation from Englishman about his national history Kazakh guy will be very confused because he will not know what to say. Let's consider another situation, when you become a parent and if your child ask you to tell him or her some historical facts and you will not know them you will be feel ashamed. We should learn our national history because it is our intelligence
