Strange New Classrooms

Things I love to hear

Student 1 (as we are starting to learn about Stalin): Ms. S, why if Stalin killed more people than Hitler have we never heard of him but we know about Hitler?

This led to a very interesting class discussion about how history is told/taught.

flash forward to a couple days ago

Student 2: Ms. S, now that we know about Stalin I’ve been seeing references to him everywhere!

I have done my job. :D
