TEACH WITH HUMOR USING U.S. HISTORY CRASH COURSE!

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 American history content, the YouTube series Crash Course U.S. History is a fantastic 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!

Primary Sources Emphasized!

Teachers like it too, though, because the content is solid, relying on the regular use of primary sources, including the "Mystery Document" feature which occurs in every episode, in which John Green reads from a famous document of the period and has to see if he can identify the author.

Where to Find Crash Course U.S. History

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:

Crash Course U.S. History

If you are new to Crash Course, I encourage you to watch a few videos as soon as you can. I expect you'll be just as enthusiastic about the classroom possibilities as I am!

Instead, they focus in on the key issues that students watching the videos should master in order to have a clear and concise understanding of the topic under study.

ARE TIME STAMPS A PRIORITY? HERE YOU GO!

Teachers who like to provide time stamps for video questions will find the work already done for them in this resource! A question sheet without time stamps, however, is also included for each episode.

IDEAS FOR USING THESE CRASH COURSE WORKSHEETS

Only a teacher knows what constitutes best use for a particular class, but I always find it helpful to see what creative approaches other teachers are using. Here are some good options for these worksheets:

  • Print off copies and have students complete them as they watch the video.
  • Assign the worksheet to be completed online as a TpT Digital Activity -- look for the "TpT Digital Activity" area on the product page to get started!
  • Accommodate students who claim that the worksheets "go too fast:" Assign students to do only the evens or only the odds. After watching the video, pair students up to discuss and fill in missing answers.
  • Create basic and advanced levels from the same worksheet: This is easily done by declaring that the "basic" level is odds-only (or evens-only) while the "advanced" level consists of all the questions.
  • Encourage students to challenge themselves to do the advanced level by offering extra credit or by announcing that the basic level can only earn a C at best, but A and B grades are available at the advanced level.
  • Use a preview/review approach, using the worksheet as an anticipatory set!
  • Run a game show: Have students watch the video carefully and take notes. Form groups afterwards and have them pool their notes, briefly discussing the whole video. Pass out the worksheets only AFTER this discussion and have each group fill out one collaboratively. Go over the answers out loud, calling on groups to respond. This option means making fewer copies: only one per group.
  • Run a multi-round game show: Print out only one copy of the worksheet and cut it apart to make question strips. Have students watch the video carefully and take notes. Form groups afterwards and have them pool their notes, briefly discussing the whole video. Ask the questions out loud, handing the question slip used to the group that first supplies the correct answer. In this way the question strips become a point counter to keep track of group progress. After all questions have been used, have each group ask each of their questions of the other groups -- this provides an additional level of review and gives groups a chance to recoup points they missed on the first round. This option means making only a single copy!
  • Let students self-assess their learning: Print out one worksheet per student, but hang onto them until students have finished watching the video. Then pass them out and have students work in pairs or individually to see how much they remember. Watch the video a second time to let them fill in the gaps. Finally, go over the material aloud to review with the class and let them fill in the blanks.
  • Use worksheets as a traditional quiz: As above, but collect papers for grading before going over the items aloud.

I am sure there are many more fun and engaging ways to use these worksheets, but I do hope that you find them useful and that the video series helps you keep student interest in history high throughout the year.
