I interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to announce that I’m going to be participating in the Fourth Writer’s Platform-Building Campaign…
I’ve never done one of these before, but I figured it could be a nice way to meet new people! =)
And now, onto the educational portion of this post…
One of my new favorite things is John Green’s Crash Course, wherein he does a video in which he teaches his teenage self about world history. In case you have yet to witness the awesome, here are the first couple of videos:
They’re really good. They’re funny (of course!), educational, and perfect for a teenaged audience who might not be particularly interested in history since John connects everything back to things that are relevant to teens, like cheeseburgers and relationships. I’m bookmarking them all so I can use them in my own classroom someday…I think they’d be great to hook students into a new topic!
