A perfect way to introduce a course in high school World History is to begin with this Crash Course video on The Rise of the West and Historical Methodology. Host John Green reminds students to think critically while studying and writing about history as he explains the concept of the Western World and how history can be viewed from the lens of multiple perspectives. Students will delight in this lively video of almost 12 minutes. Green’s style is humorous, engaging and highly entertaining. He uses his “me from the past” self caricature to poke gentle fun and takes an occasional swing at the politics of the day.
