“Reading Through History” Looks Like An Excellent YouTube Channel For…History Classes

“Reading Through History” has a large selection of short, well-done videos about U.S. and World History. Importantly, the audio narration is slow (with accurate closed-captions), which makes them accessible to English Language Learners.

Reading Through History was set up by a group of western Oklahoma social studies teachers. Our purpose is to create meaningful content that combines the subjects of reading and history, thus promoting social studies through reading.
