It is a simplified English language reading programme that encourages historical reading.

I've not found a cartoon history of Scotland that I consider worth using as a teaching tool for complete fucking noobs.

Roberts - History of the World
Norman Davies - Europe: A History

I'll add the world history youtube series by the historian John Green. With this knowledge you will have a solid foundation with which to converse on reddit.

I've not seen Green ever raise reading issues, historiographical issues, or present anything other than a chronicle narrative of the most trite reductivist kind.

In contrast Goznik is worth the read and develops reading skills. Goznik raises sourcing issues, issues to do with narrative representation, complexifies his narrative and occasionally raises historiographical debates.

Why don't you fuck your cunt with a cactus.
