There is a lot of discussion today about students lack of knowledge about American History. Most of them do not even know who fought in the American Revolution. Educators blame the situation of the No Child Left Behind Law which requires achievement tests in math and reading, so those subjects are emphasized. It seems to me that the knowledge of history could be improved by simply assigning history books in reading class. Surely they read something in reading class. I hope the students are not stuck reading about Dick and Jane.
