This video guide contains eight questions for students to answer while watching episode seven (“Brain Boost”) of the History Channel documentary Big History. Episode eight looks at caffeine, tracing why humans find it addicting, why it evolved in plants, and how it affected trade and revolutions in world history.
There is also a discussion or essay question for the students to answer after they view the video. My goal was to have questions that run the gamut of Bloom’s taxonomy.
An answer key is included.
Why so cheap? My other video guides sell for 99 cents per episode. Since these episodes are half as long, it seemed fair to price them at half the usual amount. Once the season concludes, I will offer all episodes from this season in one package at a discount. Look here for a link when that time comes.
