These videos from Crash Course are engaging introductions to a variety of topics in world history. Students may recognize John Green as a contemporary young adult novelist, who uses his credibility to draw students’ interest into new topics. The material goes by quickly, so these videos are best suited for introduction or review, and should be supplemented with a robust curriculum. The linked website includes the video and a transcript for each episode. Relevant episodes include “Islam, the Quran, and the Five Pillars Without a Flamewar,” “Islam and Politics,” “Conflict in Israel and Palestine,” and “Iran’s Revolutions.” >
