Jared Medeiros's curator insight, February 11, 2015 10:00 PM

This pirate excursion map is so cool and gives a great look at the travels of different pirates.  As we get farther away from these time periods, it seems like the idea of these Caribbean pirates are fictional.  To hear true historical events about these individual pirates is very interesting.  I would  love to take a time machine back to Port Royal during these times to experience that madness.

Brian Wilk's curator insight, March 28, 2015 9:34 AM

Imagine the horror a native of the Caribbean must have felt when white men came into their scenic lands and pillaged their villages and plundered their treasuries? Blackbeard otherwise known as Edward Teach, would light slow burning cannon fuses and place them in his beard to create an aura about him as he fought and raided these port of call. Calico Jack Rackham, a great pirate name if there ever was one, was best known for having  a pair of female pirates aboard. Instantly becomes one of my heroes! Then you have William Parker who was actually an opportunist backed by England who plundered Spanish treasures throughout Central America. Here is my favorite pirate joke; what is a pirate's favorite letter? "R" you say? No, it's the letter "C", pirates love the sea....

Best Sites for Primary Documents in World History » Copy / Paste by Peter Pappas | World History II | Scoop.it

Common Core offers an incentive for teachers to use historic documents to build literacy skills in a content area while empowering students to be the historian in the classroom. But document-based (DBQ) instruction in this context requires four key elements to be successful:

The right documents.Knowing how to look at them.Letting students discover their own patterns, then asking students to describe, compare and defend what they found.Basing the task on enduring questions, the kind that students might actually want to answer.

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.

Mary Lou Buell's curator insight, November 6, 2013 6:00 AM

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

Erin Kelly's curator insight, April 6, 2014 8:49 PM

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.
