Product Description
In which John Green, Hank Green, and Emily Graslie teach you about the Anthropocene, an unofficial geological era that covers the last century or so, in which humanity has made massive progress. We've discovered the Higgs-Boson particle, and awesome electric cars, and amazing smartphones. So all this collective learning and progress has been good for everyone, right? Maybe not. We'll look at some of the pros and cons of all this "progress," including environmental impact, changes in the way people live and work, and political changes and wars that come along with the modern world. We've come a long way, but there's a long way to go. Crash Course will also take a look at what's going to happen in the near future. If we manage to make our way through the coming bottlenecks, we could be OK in coming centuries. Don't get too hopeful, though. The Sun will eventually die, and the Earth will be destroyed, and later the universe will eventually experience heat death. But we won't talk about those downers until next week.

Here is what is included in this 4 page download:

1. Note Taking Guide for Students: This is essentially a blank section to take notes in.

2. Teacher Notes: A place for the students to write a short summary of what they have watched.

3. Quiz Questions: 10 Quiz questions and answer key.

4. Discussion Questions: I have chosen 3 discussion questions from the video that could be discussed at the end of the episode.
