This resource is a large collection of videos covering events in United States History. John Green's Crash Course series combines humor, content, and commentary into 10-15 minute videos on key events and time periods in history. The videos can be used in a variety of ways such as to preview or review a unit or to supplement a teacher-directed lesson. The videos are engaging and historically accurate, however, teachers may want to prepare students as the narrative moves very quickly and some of the commentary is quite high level and may require debriefing.
