Has Legends ever helped you in school?
« on: March 28, 2008, 04:04:08 AM »
Was there ever in time during school, where you remembered Legends, and you got an answer right?

Thanks to Legends, I remember the names of John Henry and Mary Shelley during a county Academic Brain Challenge.

Hopefully, this should be a really interesting topic.

Heh... For me, I'll recognize a name and go, "Hey, I've heard that name before!" but when I try to think about what was significant about that person, I fail. Miserably. That's what you get for tracking only the names of episodes and not their legends.

Yeah, same here.  Its like I've heard of Ali Baba before, but everything that I learned about him, had really nothing to do with the episode.

As a member of my school's Scholastic Bowl team, I'd like to say that I happened to know most of the historical figures without the help of Legends.  However, the show did help me learn about Tokugawa Ieyasu, and that has come up many times in Scholastic Bowl.

Speaking of which, as a Scholastic Bowl player, I am one of the few people who truly enjoys the Steps of Knowledge round.  I really enjoy the buzzer battles between teams that actually know the material, and seeing a good team blitz through the round is satisfying.  Sadly, not many here seem to share my opinion.

Well, I know most of the people as well, but I also remember Legends for reassurance of the fact.

In 3rd grade, I completed a worksheet about Ponce De Leon using knowledge I obtained while watching Legends of the Hidden Temple. I got a D.

Yes. Simon Bolivar, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Alhambra, Edmund Hillary, and many others!
