Looking for dvd history curriculum

Postby krisj1980 » Fri Oct 04, 2013 7:59 pm

Does anyone know of a fully online or a dvd history curriculum. This is one subject that I do not enjoy teaching and have a habit of putting it off and not doing it at all.

Fun history help

I don't know of an entire DVD history curriculum per se, but if you're looking for great tools to help teach history in this age group, consider going to www.chestercomix.com. My son absolutely loves these and he has aced his history Standard of Learning tests (SOL's) in Virginia every year. He is now starting 6th grade and STILL remembers this stuff! Plus it makes it fun and who doesn't love a comic book! Hope this helps!

Take a look at http://Study.com. I was referred to that site by my daughter's science teacher for her to get further help in her chemistry class this summer, and just love the site. I got a year membership and plan to use it as supplemental help for all subjects next year. Also it is a great research resource.

It does require membership, but through Homeschool Buyer's Coop I got a fantastic discount https://www.homeschoolbuyersco-op.org/study.com/?source=79953.

That said, I would like to caution you. I was trained as a history teacher, and so I look at things perhaps a bit differently. History is a lab science. It's not just dry facts. Take a look at 10 Essential Elements of Teaching History https://darlenenbocek.com/10teachinghistory, especially points 4, 5 and 6. Interacting with the material in a meaningful way is what "doing history" is. If you are just wanting to "get through" some curriculum, your students are missing out on a great opportunity to learn history through interacting with it. Think about what you remember about history class. The positive memories are when you made a connection with something in the past--like a story or a person that struck your imagination somehow.

What benefit is there to doing history? It teaches you to think, to analyze, to persuade, to discuss. Lecture + text + tests maybe gives you regurgitated information ABOUT the past, but doing history changes your life.
