Have you ever considered how much time, energy, money and lousy grades could be avoided if world history could be summarized for the kiddos into videos lasting a few minutes? For instance, consider the European conquests of Africa, the American continents, and India. The chillerns spend all kinds of time having to memorize the nigglingest details and names the teachers can’t even pronounce. Pizzzzarrro. Montezooooma. Courtessss. Geroneeemo. Krazyhorse. Not to mention the even worse ones in Africa and India.
But the hilarious fact is that all that isn’t needed. All those books didn’t need to be printed. All those names and dates didn’t need to be memorized to understand the basics of the European conquests of more-primitive geography.
Here it is. The incredible 4 minute 56 second summary of the European conquest of Africa, the Americas and India:
If the video doesn’t play the link below should work:
Those kids can now go back to playing on the computers with a total understanding of the history of their ancestors.
I’m going to search around to try finding some more good summaries of other hard-to-remember history.
