Consider the following situation:
Your obedient LDS son or daughter will shortly be writing the final exam in ‘History of the Americas’, a first year university coarse.
The review materials indicate that a potential question on the exam may be on the topic of ‘Please describe the impact of the horse and gun on the societies of the aboriginal American inhabitants.’
Said son or daughter feels like this is a good time to correct the many errors in the history book she bought for the coarse and plans on ‘taking a stand’ and filling in the instructor on how horses and chariots pre-dated the Spanish arrival in the Americas, and thus the ‘arrival’ of horses with the Spanish had no effect whatsoever.
How do you council your child to behave during the exam Should they just write what the marker wants to see? Should they take a stand against the obvious lies in the history book? Is there any middle ground?
