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.

I’ve also previously posted about a video produced by Melody Sheep, Our Story in 1 Minute, which makes me think that a version of “history as a list” could be adapted for video, too (I’ve embedded that video at the bottom of this post).
Now, I’ve discovered a similar video that looks pretty impressive, and it’s called “Our Story In 2 Minutes”:
You could also include the almost iconic version of Billy Joel’s – We Didn’t Start The Fire. http://bit.ly/GANamr Link there to teacher resources for the video.
