History for Music Lovers is a collection of 53 videos, centered around historical events and people (like the Spanish Inquisition and Anne Boleyn), set to popular hits (from the Beatles to Lady Gaga). The videos have been created by two history teachers in Hawaii. The lyrics are displayed on screen, so students can follow along as they listen and watch the videos. A great way to introduce to a new topic in the classroom! The songs will likely be familiar to most students, and the creators have done an outstanding job with the costumes, editing and special effects!
At Heritage Hall, we believe that, when used appropriately, technology can enhance learning. Technology does not replace the teacher.
