Video: “Evolution Of Music”


This is a great entertaining video, and it got me wondering if it could be a model for some class projects — would it make sense for students to create similar videos demonstrating the historical transitions in, let’s say, the rule of law, or how children were treated? You’d want to be very, very careful (and I’d probably avoid it) with using it to examine racial and gender attitudes, but there may very well be other attitudes that would be worth examining.

I’ve got to think about it some more, and would love to hear comments.

At the very least, the video will offer a few minutes of enjoyable entertainment:

  1. This would be great for a science class. Kids could trace beliefs about, say, how to treat disease or other scientific theories through the ages. Now I need some ideas for my English class, hmmm!
