Website of the Week: HistoryTeachers Channel

HistoryTeachers – History for Music Lovers (Gr. 6-12)

Created by two history teachers from Honolulu, Hawaii, HistoryTeachers has over 50 music videos that cover such topics as Napoleon, The French Revolution, Shakespeare, Pompeii, Vikings and more. Their YouTube channel has been going strong for almost 3 years now with new videos being uploaded about once a month. Below is their video about William the Conqueror and the Battle of Hastings. I will never forget the year 1066 again!

INTEGRATE

  • Use a video to help introduce a new unit and start a class discussion about the topic, the players involved, how it affects them personally, etc.
  • Obviously, if you don’t find a video on your topic then maybe you could ask your students to make their own music video!
