You’re short on time. You need (or want, maybe) to understand a historical concept or event. You’ve spent hours at the library, or in class, or online, skimming through old books with old ideas. That essay deadline is coming up, and nothing makes sense. You may hate history as a subject, or maybe you even like it a little.
But history doesn’t like you. At least, that’s how it feels sometimes.
Because chances are, your history lessons in school weren’t that informative, or weren’t taught in a way to help you learn anything – just to memorize and regurgitate a list of numbers and names that you’ll forget after the exam. And maybe you want to educate yourself on a topic, but a lot of the sources are dense, hard to read, and harder to verify.
That’s why you need ASAP History. Here’s a brief look at what we have to offer:
- Easy-to-understand notes on historical events, people and concepts
- Daily historical facts
- Citations and suggested sources
- Essay prompts and questions to kickstart the creative process and smash through writer’s block
- … and more. We’re always growing and looking for ways to improve your history-learning experience!
We’re here to help you better understand the world we live in, and the past that is an inextricable part of our present and future – and maybe learn something fun along the way. To the curious, stressed-out, pressed-for-time masses – whether you’re a high school student, a teacher, or just a human being – we’re here to help. Welcome to ASAP History, and happy reading!
