I just found an amazing resource for understanding more about world history in a fun way. (Thanks for putting them on the playlist for our unit, Moi!) As a "big picture" kind of thinker, I love how these videos capture the important essence of a historical concept without killing the viewer with names and dates. (There are some of those of course, too!) I would love to catch up on this series and watch them all! What great background knowledge for teachers when looking at historical context of current concepts.
It's like BrainPop for adults!
