For the podcast I will use in my class, I chose John Green’s Crash Course World History and Crash Course US History. These are podcasts that are directly available on Youtube, which all my students regularly use. Also I can download and save them for viewing offline in any podcast player using keepvid.com.
Here’s the first episode, which gives probably the best answer to the question, “will this be on the test?” that I’ve ever heard. It is about the history of the Agricultural Revolution.
I will use this clip to kick off the Agricultural Revolution. I’ll then have the students reenact early man and early hunter/gatherer societies. I selected this podcast because it fits seamlessly with my content, is well-written, interesting, and funny. The kids will love it:)
