Today, I have to write a diary for a soldier in the trenches during WWI. Now, I thought that History was about learning facts, but really it just involves learning a few facts and writing what we think about them. Take this diary homework for instance; I have had 2 lessons on WWI, yet they expect me to write this diary for the whole war! I don’t really know what I am supposed to put into it, because I haven’t exactly learnt much about it, have I?
