Teach Thematic History using Crash Course Season Two Worksheets
Fans of Crash Course World History appreciate its humorous approach to telling in chronological order the story of human history. To really understand history in all its beautiful complexity, however, it’s also essential to take a thematic approach that spans many eras, looking for patterns and commonalities.
That’s what the second season of Crash Course World History does. Instead of dealing with a single historical event per episode, it tackles a major historical force in each episode, showing how that force changed human history over centuries and millennia. Season Two covers issues such as disease, money, war, climate change, drought, energy, capitalism, democracy, and peace movements. This will give your students a much deeper understanding of not just what has happened in the past, but why events unfolded as they did. And that deeper understanding, of course, will equip your students to better understand the world in which they live!
Season Two is definitely thematic, but it also contains some episodes that DO tackle a limited historical era. These episodes cover events and issues that got limited (or no) coverage during the first season. OR, they cover events that were emphasized during Season One, but in much greater depth, with an eye toward understanding multiple perspectives. Episodes of this type include ones about Israel & Palestine, Iran, WWI, WWII, the Vikings, Japan, industrialization, and Asian responses to imperialism.
This Crash Course World History Series 2 Worksheet Pack covers a single episode in detail:
29 - Capitalism and the Ducth East Asia Company

Why Students Love World History Crash Course Season Two
Few classroom strategies are as successful as this simple approach: make learning fun! That, or course, is easier said than done, but when it comes to teaching history contents, the YouTube series Crash Course World History Season Two is a great place to start.
The script of each episode is packed with humorous observations about life and culture -- ones that help to make strong points about the history being communicated. Just as importantly, the host, John Green, has what it takes to keep students' interest: enthusiasm about the topics, a quirky way with props, and a funny, sometimes deadpan delivery of content. Students like watching the series, which means they pay attention to it and learn!
Each episode of Crash Course contains about 10 minutes of content plus a brief time for the credits. Episodes are available for free on YouTube at the following playlist:
