PEDANTIC SCHOLARSHIP, HISTORY AND MYTH MAKING

Since your time is precious, and your money is precious and since there is so much competition for your attention, just what in the world is so compelling about this resource that you should pay for it? Especially when you can get all you can eat for free at the internet buffet?

We show the Big Picture.

Education is compartmentalized, and social studies which should be able to - doesn't deliver the big picture. We use the net to interrupt the state sactioned text books who have bought the right to have publishers print the myths that they want to you to believe but do not really explain what happened. We interrupt the education text book industry supply chain - but more about that later . . . 

HISTORY AND MYTH MAKING

Pedantic Scholarship and Myth Making.

Story telling is like a game of chess. We have an interdisciplinary style so that in the end you'll know the big picture. This online curriculum will explain all the moves made by all the players - - not just those pieces of information that the government has paid publishers to print, but the hard facts of history made by documented known and unknown culture makers who have been censored by the corporate and government sanctioned myth makers.

Teachers are sometimes labeled "pedagogues" if they're pedantic -- that is, overly strict, close-minded, and self-important. And the word "pedagogue" comes from Greek Antiquity, where it referred to the slave who led his master's children to school.

PEDAGOGUE

This is the power of the internet.
