Composition for Guan Zhong of the First Test Paper of National College Entrance Examination in 2020, tested the examinee's cognition of the value of the times of traditional culture. Examining the record of Guan Zhong in The Analects of Confucius can reveal the Confucian historiography. Confucianism adheres to Comprehensive Historiography requiring comprehensive dialectical observation, insists on Humanistic Historiography believing the people are the creators of history, perseveres in Heroic Historiography convincing princes and generals are the decisive force of history, upholds Orthodox Historiography advocating the maintenance of a unified situation. Middle school students should make a dialectical analysis of Confucian historical views, getting rid of its dross, saving its essence, inheriting and carrying forward for it in the case of Chinese traditional culture deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.
