History For Music Lovers

20120108-084249.jpg

I am a music lover. Heck, I named one of my sons Jonas after a Weezer tune. Putting popular music songs with difficult to remember historical content is certainly a way to help our students retain that info. Thanks to Carl Stressing for the heads up regarding History for Music Lovers! It is mostly on YouTube. I know we can’t get it in the classrooms but at least we can encourage our students to check out the links at home or on their smartphones. The blog below does a great job describing the background of these popular modern videos that have gone viral online.
