Atascocita High School World "history" is teaching a book A History of World in 6 cups (beer, wine, spirits, tea, coke). I read the book. It is focused on the enlightenment of wine, spirits, beer and other substances.

Questions such as... come from the teacher.

WINE
1. How did the use of wine differ from that of beer in ancient Greece and Rome?
2. How was wine used by the Greeks?
3. How and why did wine develop into a form of a status symbol in Greece?
4. How was wine consumed? What does this tell us about the ancient Greek culture?
5. How did the use of wine in Roman culture differ from that of ancient Greece?
6. What is the relationship between wine and empire, medicine, and religion.

Quote examples:

Socrates uses wine to pursue truth...

Shared bowl of wine, shared ideas, best arguments and solutions win

wine did away with inhibitions to reveal hidden truths

Is this really history. Do 14 and 15 year olds benefit from learning about the benefits of alcohol

No, it's more liberal BS, probably common core crap! Why glorify alcoholic consumption? 

Butterbean --- 322 days ago -

I'm a non-drinker, but I've heard that a large quantity of alcohol makes America great again. Or at least it creates an illusion of greatness. Or it helps to get through the current governmental fog.

Or it just gets you drunk.

Can you provide a link on how this is part of the curriculum?

Seems Mr. Duez has a very unique curriculum. Historical perspective in beverage context LOL.

I believe it does. Alcohol has played a significant role in many historical events, and daily lives.

Our children don't need to be exposed to alcohol and drinking.

JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WRONG THINKING SCHOOL LEADERSHIP! (or lack there of)

Comes as no surprise, Texas is a pretty alcoholic place... 

Karras --- 321 days ago -

This is not a big deal, just another way to categorize world history: from Beer all the way to Coca-Cola.

The only thing I don't like is requiring students to read during the summer. Suggest it yes, but requiring homework over the summer is BS.

Dan Huberty's sent staffer sent an email saying that Dan is perfectly comfortable with the content of this class. He calls it college level content and appropriate. So much for family values

Now I understand why....

I wouldn't say Texas is a pretty alcoholic place, but I would say it's cute.

Like they are not already?
