You probably will learn even less from the Summer School version of History class. Summer School classes are not usually nearly as thorough as they are during the regular school term.
Some men learn from books. Some learn from being shown. Some just need to urinate on the electric fence for themselves. -anonymous

I always taught my students that this is a very loaded quote. It’s almost always after the “event” that the “lesson” is clear. While an event is transpiring, it’s simply looking for patterns, which may or may not be accurate. For instance, during the 1930s, with the horror of the Great War still fresh in minds/sight(amputees everywhere), “history’s lesson” was avoid war, yet we see the events related to Hitler’s conquering w/o firing a shot as a lesson to “always stand up to an aggressor”.
