Wide Angle’s “Video Bank” Is An Excellent Social Studies Resource



Thanks to my talented colleague, Elisabeth Johnson, I’ve learned about “Wide Angle: Window Into Global History,” a project of Channel Thirteen in New York.

It has a collection of multimedia social studies lessons and a “video bank,” which I think is particularly impressive. The videos are divided by themes (power, conflict, migrations, etc.) and each video has suggested guiding classroom questions, a transcript and more.

I’m finding that the page they have listing the videos “by location” particularly useful for my Geography class.

I’m adding the site to The Best Geography Sites For Beginning & Intermediate English Language Learners.
