    Why Study History?

    Have you ever had your students (or parents, or administrators) wonder why History is being taught in schools? I made this video to address that very question on the first day of my Social Studies class. [Please note: I apologize for the low-quality video. Unfortunately, this is due to the quality of the original clips used. If possible, the video may look best without maximizing the view. Hopefully the message and tone is still conveyed despite the low quality footage.] This video was made solely for use in the classroom and educational purposes. Written and Edited by: Joanna Hayes Music: Coldplay - Viva La Vida Clips: History Channel, Discovery Channel, Pepsi, "Babies" trailer, Nike, CNN, AP, NBC, CBS, and archival footage Contact: jhayesteach@gmail.com Website: http://hayeshistory.tumblr.com
