History and Literature

I am a history teaching major and an English teaching minor.
My entire life as been so deeply embedded in these two subjects and I can’t imagince life without either one. In fact, I can’t imagine either subject without the other.

History is a form of story-telling. Has been since the beginning of time. The oral tradition was just that–a way of telling stories before written language. However, it was more than just stories, it was a way to pass down geneology and information as well as myths and legends.
Throughout time, history has influence literature, but literature has also influenced events in history.

I love both subjects so much and am amazed when people can’t see the connection between the two. I can’t wait to become a teacher and teach both subjects. I want to be abel to create an integrated class program. A class for both history and English. A high school version of Humanities.
I feel that is the best way we can learn about ourselves.

History is a novel for which the people is the author.
