Product Description
History of the World in 2 Hours is an EXCELLENT History Channel docudrama that can be found for FREE on YouTube or purchased from the History Channel or Amazon.com. It provides students with a clear overview of four time periods:

Prehistory
Ancient History
Medieval History
Modern History

I created this assignment in order to help my students conquer the Common Core Explanatory Writing Standards as well as prepare them for SBAC questions that require them to watch a video and write a response using information from their notes.

This PDF contains the following:

1) PREHISTORY QUESTIONS for students to answer as they watch the first section of the movie.

2) ANCIENT HISTORY: This handout provides an essential question to help the students focus in on the key elements of this section of the movie. Students take notes that will help them write an explanatory paragraph responding to the question.

3) MEDIEVAL HISTORY: This handout provides an essential question to help the students focus in on the key elements of this section of the movie. Students take notes that will help them write an explanatory paragraph responding to the question.

4) MODERN HISTORY: This handout provides an essential question to help the students focus in on the key elements of this section of the movie. Students take notes that will help them write an explanatory paragraph responding to the question.

5) EXPLANATORY PARAGRAPH REFLECTION Students evaluate their three paragraphs and write a reflection on their progress for their topic sentences, information and concluding sentences.

6) TEACHER NOTES that are VERY detailed. There are notes for each section of the movie so that you can help the students get the key information as well as SAMPLE PARAGRAPHS.

The entire movie is available on YouTube or you can order it from Amazon or the History Channel.

NOTE TO 6TH GRADE TEACHERS I indicated that these assignments could be used for 6th grade. With guidance and scaffolding, a 6th grade class that is high functioning, honors or GATE could tackle these assignments. They could be used with students who are not as high functioning, but you would need to provide guidance and pause the movie frequently to make sure they catch the key elements and get them written down in their notes.
