Most students are bored by history courses as they are usually taught, primarily because a large amount of time is spent teaching dates and statistic. The best way to teach history, therefore, is to spend most class time recounting the lives of historical figures and very little on dates and statistics.
Each of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends EXCEPT:
(A) One should avoid boring oneâ€™s students when teaching a history course.
(B) It is not incompatible with the attainable goals of teaching history to spend very little class time on dates and statistics.
(C) It is possible to recount the lives of historical figures without referring to dates and statistics.
(D) It is compatible with the attainable goals of teaching history to spend most class time recounting the lives of historical figures.
(E) Students are more bored by history courses as they are usually taught than they would be by courses that spend most class time recounting the lives of historical figures.
A) if you dont mind about your student's boredom in history classes, than why change the teaching method?
B) rephrased: it is ok to teach history spending less time on statistics
C) The stem demands only to spend less time on statistics, but never says one needs to dimishe statistics and dates completely
D) same as B only by emphasazing the opposite
E) Basis for a change. if this is not the case, then the boredom of students may have a different cause and the alternative suggestion is no valid.
