If you are looking for websites that provides video resources in the area of social studies check out this post. Richard Byrne provides a list of ten websites, stating "As a Social Studies teacher, I have used all but one of these sources in my classroom at least once and most of them I've used multiple times."

The list includes:

* Hip Hop Videos - "a series of short, upbeat lectures on topics in US History and World History."

* PBS Video - high quality documentaries.

* History for Music Lovers "is a great place to find music videos about dozens of topics in World History."

Check out the post for an additional seven sites!

Included in this article is an interesting story of how one HS ELA teacher modified (just a little) her literature unit to incorporate more nonfiction.  The result?  A much improved unit in her assessment.
