  • Instructions
    • Anything written in yellow (slow down and pay attention) is useful information. You should write it in your notes IN YOUR OWN WORDS.
    • Anything in red (STOP and pay close attention) is critical information and should be copied exactly.
    • Anything in green (go on to the next point) you do not have to write.
    • Any time you see a video with no text it is your responsibility to write notes for it.
  • 3 Reasons to Love History
    • 1. If you don’t know history, you don’t know your world or your culture.
    • 2. History is story time all the time!
    • 3. History is who we were, who we are and who we will be.
  • But don’t take my word for it…
  • You see, Rafiki knows…
    • “ Ah yes, the past CAN hurt, but as I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.”
    • Rafiki is a cartoon monkey and he knows this and you’re smarter than a cartoon monkey right?!
  • Ah, c’mon, one little thing in history doesn’t matter to me you say… … oh really?
  • The smallest decision can change the world. That is what history is all about.
  • Fine, but I’m only in 7 th grade, I can’t change the world. Sure you can. But even if you don’t, at least you don’t want to be like this do you…?
  • We’d all agree, that’s pretty bad. But I have even worse news… Some of the adult world sees you like this…
  • Luckily, history is fun. That’s because history is all about the story.
  • Hollywood loves history!
