Getting students to read anything longer than an Instagram caption has become increasingly difficult. Who can blame the students when their textbooks read like a boring litany of facts and dates?
It’s no wonder reading skills are at an all-time low. Only one out of four of middle school students are proficient in American history and many perceive history and literature as “irrelevant.”
Midgard Education Publishing is changing that. We feel it is essential for young people to understand the past in order to succeed in the future. Being a good citizen means being an informed citizen, aware of the complex historical and cultural context that forms the basis of our society.
Our secret is simple: Midgard is putting the story back into history.
