I’ve previously posted about a Robert Krulwich NPR column, “Let’s Play History As A List” and how I’ve applied it in my Social Studies classes.

Simply put, students list a few words, along with their rationale, to describe an historical era.

Melody Sheep just produced an excellent video, Our Story in 1 Minute, which makes me think that a version of “history as a list” could be adapted for video, too. Obviously, a student-produce video wouldn’t be as slick as this one, but it could be used as a model. What do you think?
