Paul Avila's curator insight, November 30, 2013 9:21 PM

This is a pretty good article for teachers who are trying to divert from the traditional methods of leading the class. The main focus should be the steps given, which are easy to learn and broad enough to adapt any classroom. I would recommend others use this article as a guideline to how you should lead the class room. I like the idea of imagining the role as a "learner first."

If all of world history is a movie, what are its biggest plotholes?

If all of world history is a movie, what are its biggest plotholes? | Education and some History | Scoop.it
That's the question asked this week on a particularly fun thread on reddit. TheMediaSays asked fellow redditors to critique the history of the world as if it were a piece of scripted entertainment.
Nicholas O'Kieffe's insight:

THIS IS AMAZING! I know it is completely ridiculous but it is hilarious and works perfectly with the other Scoop on imgur, which is a sub-Reddit.  It is clever and would absolutely gain the attention of my students.  Personally if I ever get the chance to at least preview some of this I would love it.  It is provocative and still mildly educational.  Obviously there would be some serious historical content added by yours truely.  Advancing things like this will be good for education, I am living in this generation and I know just how much the cyberlife has become part of who I am.  Why not embrace it and adapt it, right?

Jewish and Latino communities share history, goals in Tucson - Arizona Daily Star

Jewish and Latino communities share history, goals in Tucson - Arizona Daily Star | Education and some History | Scoop.it
Jewish and Latino communities share history, goals in Tucson Arizona Daily Star Today a small group of Jewish and Latino Tucsonans want to re-stake their historical common ground by starting a new dialogue, a new relationship that will lead them to...
Nicholas O'Kieffe's insight:

This is huge! Arizona has literally been history in the making with how much controversy has been following this state.  The fact that they are trying to build these bridges is a good sign.  Without some kind of agreement or bond, the fighting and conflict will continue.

The 5 Most Badass Medics in the History of War

The 5 Most Badass Medics in the History of War | Education and some History | Scoop.it
This is what happens when G.I. Joe and Dr. House mash it up. (Don't let paralysis get you down.
Nicholas O'Kieffe's insight:

I know this is definitely out there as far as educational, Cracked.com does have it's moments though.  As a history major I absolutely love this look at medics! Being a medic in any situation is stressful to say the least, being on the battlefield while trying to save lives must be unexplainable.  Though this article is light-hearted to say the least, I still think it holds value.  The viewpoint is unique and certainly unlike the traditional explanation.  I believe articles like this can be utilized but would obviously need some kind of control and handled with care.

How the Common Core Standards Can Help U.S. Students Understand History

How the Common Core Standards Can Help U.S. Students Understand History | Education and some History | Scoop.it
Nicholas O'Kieffe's insight:

I surprised by this article.  Not only does it include both history and education, but it is this take on the Common Core that I was not entirely prepared for.  Granted I wasn't sure what to expect with this title, could go more than one way.  I think this is worth a read.  We have talked about the Common Core so much this semester I think this is a good addition to those discussions.

imgur: the simple image sharer

imgur: the simple image sharer | Education and some History | Scoop.it
Imgur is home to the web's most popular image content, curated in real time by a dedicated community through commenting, voting and sharing. (@Sarelya23 Here's the tough little bully boy who said MY education is lacking.
Nicholas O'Kieffe's insight:

Okay this one is a stretch I will admit, but it is very personal for me.  imgur is one of my favorite sites.  The majority of it contains nonsense and hilarity and is just fun to spend time on, but every now and again something big comes from it.  It is a community, we are a community and from the times I have been exposed to it, we do not tolerate bullies and cruelty.  People have disclosed some very personal information in the hopes of support and they have recieved it more times than not.  imgur is a great source of information and is where I have stumbled across inspiration and information that changd me.  I would say that it is very possible to use sites like this to relate and teach students well.

A Student Explains What's Wrong With Our School System And Why We Mistrust Teachers. Nails It. | Education and some History | Scoop.it
He wants to support his teachers, so he calls out everything we're doing wrong.
Nicholas O'Kieffe's insight:

I know what I am looking for in my Scoop.it! and this is certainly a part of it.  As an educator in training, probably will be for my entire career lets be honest, this struck close to home.  He brings up a lot of things that I know I have talked about with many of my classmates both in and out of class.  I think this is most important because it reaffirms that I am not the only one that feels something needs to be done.
