Episode Guides for the Crash Course Literature YouTube Series!
Each guide comes with two versions (with and without timestamps), and a complete answer key.
Have you ever wanted to cover more great novels, but just don't have the time?
Have you ever wanted to give your students a broader understanding of the literature that will be covered on the A.P. test, or just a more comprehensive understanding of literature than you would ever have time to fit into one year?
This has been a solution for me. I can cover a novel in a way that introduces it to my students while also giving them an idea of what the novel is about, and why it is important and influential. All in 10 minutes!
It has been a pain free way for me to broaden my students horizons, while still teaching all of the novels and curriculum that I already have squeezed into the year. I simply keep the worksheets on hand, and when I have a class that runs fast, or an unexpected substitute, I pull them out.
This product easy to use, no-prep product is a perfect last minute lesson plan, review activity, extra "filler" to keep on hand, substitute lesson plan, or homework assignment.
*Great AP test prep!
Plus it's only $0.80 per episode!
-Answer key included for every episode guide
-Questions are a variety of formats and vary within each episode guide:
-Fill in the blank
-Pacing within the episode is about 1 question every minute.
-Sometimes my students struggle to catch all of the questions as these videos present a great deal of information very quickly. This may not be as much of an issue with older students. To combat this issue though consider …..
-Cut down the questions. Have them answer only odds, only evens, or have them skip specific ones that don’t align with your learning goals for the day.
-Watch the video twice. This allows students to catch more of the information and fill in any questions that they missed.

What is “Crash Course Literature”?
“Crash Course Literature” is a YouTube series that is fast paced, packed with information, and gives a retelling and analysis of many of literature's finest works. It is a fantastic introduction to a novel, a great review, or a quick overview if you are running short on time. Though the episodes are dense with facts, Green explains the literature in a way that reaches all learners, while still succeeding in making it fun, light-hearted, and relevant for students. These episodes not only analyse the novel being discussed, but make it applicable and engaging to our students. A link to the episodes is included in the product.
This series was also created with the AP test in mind, making it a great resource to have on hand to help your students prepare.
