BLOG: Remembering 4th-grade Idaho History : Blogs
I found history textbooks dull so dull I have even considered writing my own. But I found fourth-grade Idaho history fascinating partly because we were required to memorize the names of all 44 counties in alphabetical order. I didnt realize the purpose of this exercise until I got my drivers license, but many lessons arent realized until later in life. Besides, I was a competitive student and thrived on amassing trivial knowledge. Nearly 50 years later, I can still recite all 44 counties on a good day. I can make it through about half the counties in 10 seconds, but I find myself slowing down after Franklin and Fremont.
