Frances says, have you found ‘Crash Course’ on YouTube?

Frances has found these ‘Crash Course’ fun films on YouTube. There are loads to try, some are really good for getting a sense of the overall story in a whole period. Here’s one that summarises the Cold War in 12 minutes. That’s quite a challenge! Of course, it’s an interpretation made in the USA. But then, all history is an interpretation remember. Great young historians are skilled and knowledgeable enough to assess an interpretation by cross-referencing and you have to start somewhere – be curious and be sceptical! Thanks, Frances!
