Drunk History [not for students] ... series
YouTube Channel
Based on the award-winning and wildly popular web series, Drunk History is the liquored-up narration of the USA nation's history.
Host Derek Waters, along with an ever-changing cast of inebriated storytellers and top actors and comedians, travels across the country to reenact the rich tales that every city in this land has to offer.
Booze helps bring out the truth. It's just that sometimes the truth is a little incoherent.

World War I Rotogravures
http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/collections/rotogravures/
World War I Rotogravures
During the World War I era (1914-18), leading newspapers took advantage of a new printing process that dramatically altered their ability to reproduce images. Rotogravure printing, which produced richly detailed, high quality illustrations?ven on inexpensive newsprint paper?as used to create vivid new pictorial sections. Publishers that could afford to invest in the new technology saw sharp increases both in readership and advertising revenue.
The images in this collection track American sentiment about the war in Europe, week by week, before and after the United States became involved. Events of the war are detailed alongside society news and advertisements touting products of the day, creating a pictorial record of both the war effort and life at home.

Trenches on the Web - World War One
http://www.worldwar1.com/
An Internet History of The Great War
You are at the "Trenches" Home Page. These pages contain information on the people, places, and events that comprised one of the worst calamities of modern history. Entire kingdoms were to vanish in the clash. The map makers of the world would be busy indeed!
The trenches are set up in such a way as to allow you to explore the "The Great War" at your own pace and in your own manner. If you don't know where to start then the Reference Library is a good bet. It is a complete catalog of everything out here. Then again, if you know what you are looking for, you can go right to the search facility (although I'd hate to think you're in a hurry to get out of here).

Teaching with Techology

Welcome to Teaching with Techology, a resource created by a teacher, for teachers looking to incorporate technology into their classrooms!
I began teaching High School History in 1985, but I never used a computer in the classroom until I arrived at the Noble and Greenough School (Nobles) in Dedham Massachusetts in the fall of 1998.
Thanks to the training and financial support I received from Nobles’ Computer Department and Administration, I am now teaching laptop-based courses exclusively.

Use of ICT is a National Curriculum requirement in all subjects. The potential of ICT for history study is enormous yet, in my opinion, it is vastly under utilised. This site attempts to offer innovative, exciting and above all beneficial ideas for the use of ICT in secondary school history.
