Making boring subjects less so

Darlene and I were discussing how boring some high school classes were back in the day. I'm certain that not much has changed. But we both agreed that typically boring subjects like History could be made more exciting if combined with other classes like Drama. Imagine how much more interesting history would be if you not only learned about it, but acted out historical scenes from the past.

Imagine how interesting geography would be if you went out on a field trip to explore local ruins from past settlements or acted out a typical military route march (which requires map reading skills).

I'm sure other combinations are possible too.
