Then, sophomore year, I took a course called World History and had Swivel on that Camel Breath shirt who at least laid the groundwork for exploring world history. He was also one of those guys who led tours to places outside of the US (sadly, I never went on one) so you could say he at least had a grasp that American history is definitely not the only important history. I enjoyed the class because it presented new things to me. Because of this course, I actually gained an interest in World War I—a subject that, compared to World War II, essentially seemed to be of little importance in past history courses because the US was only involved for a few months. I also did a project on Josef Stalin (a project my teacher took with him to Florida when he retired) which—depending on how one views it, really—was my first engagement with the Cold War in a historical sense.

Best Swivel on that Camel Breath shirt
Junior year, my history teacher was hilarious and Swivel on that Camel Breath shirt and I loved her for it (she was also one of the few female history teachers I had). She was also one of the most socially conscious because, throughout the course, we looked at more social movements and we also had to confront uncomfortable subject matter whether it was racism or the sheer insidious nature of the Red Scare(s). The latter was especially unusual because why, in America, should we feel sympathy for those damn dirty Commies? It is partly because of her that I now look at history with consideration of groups that are either wholly excluded or even maligned in some historical narratives. Also, now I am aware and engaged socially in more current events because I now at least have a better understanding of how these social movements formed and why they are the way they are. Outside of that, she also did a pretty interesting thing when having us engage with history in a completely different sense: we made the decision to not drop the atomic bombs on Japan.
