Top Ten Civil Rights Songs

Top Ten Civil Rights Songs | Ms. Redman's Junior 20th Century History Class | Scoop.it
The civil rights movement has resonated deeply with generations of musicians. .

 

This link connects you to 10 YouTube clips of important songs that were inspirational in the shaping of the Civil Rights movement.  This is a poignant way to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day this coming Monday, but it is also a great archive for potential teaching resources...lessons that use music can have a profound impact.

Shelby Redman's insight:

Music tells our stories and shows a lot about the time in which it was made. This would be amazing to incorporate into the classroom. Teachers could break students up into groups and have them work on individual songs and pull historical inferences from them. Then you could bring the class back together to discuss.  There a lot of great visuals included in these videos.

Shelby Redman's insight:

I love these Crash Courses. They offer a great sense of cheesy comedy and are very informative. You could follow these up with primary documents. Have the students find articles about points in the crash course they were interested in.

The Entire History of the World—Really, All of It—Distilled Into a Single Gorgeous Chart

The Entire History of the World—Really, All of It—Distilled Into a Single Gorgeous Chart | Ms. Redman's Junior 20th Century History Class | Scoop.it
This “Histomap,” created by John B. Sparks, was first printed by Rand McNally in 1931. (The David Rumsey Map Collection hosts a fully zoomable version here.)

Greta Brewin's curator insight, October 27, 2013 12:28 AM

This is a 'Histomap' created by John B. Sparks and first published in 1931. It depicts literally all of the world’s history from 2000 BC up until the 1900 AD. This would be great to just have printed out and displayed in your classroom, allowing student to study it as they please. I would have loved to have this to look at during quiet reading back in my day. It really is fascinating and fairly easy to understand. It works as a great visual aid to allow students to understand who had power and to see as it depletes. Although a large part of the historical knowledge shown on the chart is not a part of the Australian Curriculum, having it in the classroom allows students to explore and research these eras of history in their own time. 

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, January 24, 4:38 PM

Often times I find it hard to think of history as simply a recolection of time. Youspend your childhood looking at timelines and learning history linearly you often forget that this is not the case. I found this work to be very asthetically pleasing and helpful as well.

If Facebook had existed during World War 2 Read "Facebook News Feed History of the World: World War I to World War II" and more funny articles ... (Facebook newsfeed #history of World War I to World War II.

Via Thomas Faltin
Shelby Redman's insight:

This is incredibly entertaining. I would use this to relate to the students on the level of social media and it could be used as a timeline to show events of the war. I do find it to be a bit provacative but if I know the level of maturity of my class and they could handle this I think I would use it. I would recommend other teachers use this idea as well. The timelining concept is great for history teachers. You can make fake facebooks and timeline important events in history. It is a great tool for studying and it reaches students on more levels than just a text book.

10 Cold War Weapons That Terrified U.S. Military Intelligence

10 Cold War Weapons That Terrified U.S. Military Intelligence | Ms. Redman's Junior 20th Century History Class | Scoop.it
When US-Soviet relationships were at their frostiest in the 1980s, there was no telling what sort of exotic threat was about to come roaring through Russia's Iron Curtain. That's where the Defense Intelligence Agency came in.

Via Thomas Faltin
Shelby Redman's insight:
This is an incredible article to show the causes for fear during the cold war. Fear was the main cause of the Cold War and this shows the reasons we had for being worried about spies, arms, and technology in Soviet Union. In class we could do guided notes or think pair share ( I would recommend this to others). This is something I would recommend to other teachers to use because it is a piece that works for so many students. It has pictures, it is pretty easy to read and it pertains to the topic of the Cold War.

A Crash Course On The Cold War

A Crash Course On The Cold War | Ms. Redman's Junior 20th Century History Class | Scoop.it
John Green is back with another installment of his Crash Course in US History. Episode 37 covers one of my favorite topics to teach, the Cold War.

Via Thomas Faltin
Shelby Redman's insight:

Sometimes we dont have the time to get every point in history covered in class so things like this are great. Crash courses by John Green provide the main points and concepts and serve as a great tool to review, intro, or refresh. You can use these in any way in your class.

 

I would show them in the beginning of a unit and maybe even end with it.

World War II: Women at War - Alan Taylor - In Focus - The Atlantic | Ms. Redman's Junior 20th Century History Class | Scoop.it
For the nations who were deeply involved in World War II, the war effort was total, with women volunteering in huge numbers alongside men and filling traditionally male positions at home, in industry, and the military.

Via Rajesh Kripalani
Shelby Redman's insight:

This is a great piece that could help show the multiple role that women played during WWII. Teachers could use this for a project and have the students do further research on the women in the war. Photos tend to interest students more so than reading an article. Photos allow for students to connect on a visual level. I would pull these up on the overhead and lead a group dicussion about what is happening in the pictures.

Shelby Redman's insight:

This is quite an interesting piece. It is evidence that the effects of war last decades! This would be a great tool to open up discussion about lasting effects of war and world war I. I would reccommend that teachers use this to tie up their unit of World War I or even at the end of the year to show that the 20th century had effects on the 21st century. This would be great for homework reading or small group discussion brought together by a larger group discussion.

Story of Korean War in Colour (Documentary)

Best way to understand what's the fuzz going in Korea right now is to go back and review the history to have a better insight about the origin of hostilities...
Shelby Redman's insight:
This documentary depicts the first confrontation of the Cold War. I personally think this documentary does a great job showing the true hardships of the Korean War. I would recommend that teachers use this in their classrooms during this unit because the common person does not know much about the Korean War (I didn't even know anything about it until college). I would recommend a two day viewing of this with parent permission due to the gruesome nature of the video. I would recommend that you disclose the gruesome nature and for those who cannot watch provide an alternative reading assignment. It is a great piece with so much information and does a great job capturing the Korean War.
