History Resource Menu
Students enjoy learning from content creators like Crash Course, Khan Academy, and Extra Credits, so I have been working on a History Resource Menu that treats the wide world of nerdy internet videos like a textbook. The spirit of this project is to organize helpful YouTube videos by region of the world, as well as the dates they cover. That way, the overwhelming sea of videos can be used strategically in the classroom. Below is a picture of the table of contents.
Sections by Region
In this History Resource Menu, each region of the world has its own subsection, and each section is linked together in one massive document. Below is a sample of one section.
My hopes is that a document like this can also be used by original content creators to discover what other content creators have done and find collaborators.
Special Topics Section
The History Resource Menu also has a special topics section. That way, useful YouTube videos can be organized thematically. Below is a picture of the table of contents.
Hopefully, this YouTube organizer can be a tool for teachers looking for resources, as well as for students who want to have a study guide for internet videos.
