If you haven’t seen the short clip of a Texas high-school student asking/telling his teacher to teach instead of handing out “packets”: watch.

Welcome to World History and Asian American Studies!
As we go thru the year; you will discover alot of new things you never knew about not only about the world but the mysterious continent of Asia. As you can see - I got to visit Great Wall of China during the summer of 2011 as well as many other sights in China and Japan!
