This is a set of episode guides for the “Crash Course U.S. History” YouTube series. Each episode has an episode guide that comes in two versions. One includes the timestamps so that students can easily find where the answers are within the videos. The other version does not have the timestamps, but the questions still go in order within the video.
-Answer key included for every episode guide
-Essay Questions are included for every episode. These questions can also serve as great class discussion starters.
-Use the whole essay question, or have your students do only part.
-Questions are a variety of formats and vary within each episode guide:
-Fill in the blank
-Pacing within the episode is about 1 question per minute
-Sometimes my 5th grade students struggle to catch all of the questions as John Green talks very quickly in these videos. This may not be as much of an issue with older students, or with those who are more familiar with video note taking. 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.
