Erin Kelly's insight:

Using any of the animated maps provided, pick any documented battle and respond to the following:

 

1) Which battle did you watch and why do you think it was important to history?

 

2) Who were the key players in the battle you watched?

For the Fussiest of Students~A Crash Course in World History on YouTube

For the Fussiest of Students~A Crash Course in World History on YouTube | Hair-Raising History | Scoop.it

Give John Green 40 weeks, and Green will give you a playful and highly visual crash course in world history, taking you from the beginning of human civilization 15,000 years ago through to our modern age. If you’re not familiar with him, Green is a bestselling author of several young adult books (Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns). He has quick paced but informational videos from the beginning of time onwards-sure to catch the interest of the most fussiest of students.

Erin Kelly's insight:

John and Hank Green's 'Crash Course' is a great learning tool, to be used in a complimentary manner with other classroom material, possibly as a study aid. Fast-paced and engaging, students could utilise 'Crash Course World History' as a study tool or refresher. The channel also covers Literature, Biology, Physics and other subjects. A fresh perspective on the same information can never hurt.

I've never really been interested in American history but as I highly enjoy John Green I think I might give it a try. American history lessons here I come.

Want to brush up on your own understanding of world history? Ok, for students as well, but John Green sure does talk fast.
