The Knowledge That Survived Four Years of High School
The topic selected by my English teacher this week for our Youth Voices post is fascinating: what are the most interesting things you've learned in high school? That question has definitely made me think: what are the pieces of information I have remembered from my freshmen year or that I've loved hearing about my senior year? One of the most interesting topics I've studied in high school is mythology: not only does my Latin class discuss Roman and Greek mythology, we also learn about Egyptian and British mythology. Mythology is a fascinating subject for me and the way Mr. Soran tells the mythological stories makes them sound like the epic fantasy stories that I love reading.
Another topic is Chinese culture. Their culture is completely different and they have totally different etiquette rules. For instance, it is horribly rude to not finish the food you're served in China even if you don't know what you're eating. Another topic that is still with me is my AP European History class my sophomore year. I love studying anything to do with European history, especially the Medieval and Renaissance periods. AP Psychology was also an amazing class. Ms. Rowland teaches with examples and I often remember virtually the entire lesson she gave when I study for the tests. My high school experience at Judge has been unforgettable and I am eternally grateful to all of the teachers that made me a better and more knowledgeable person. I wouldn't be the same person I am today without them.
