Dracula: A History
Dracula: A History is a great way to teach something substantive on Halloween while at the same time, taking a day off from regular instruction. The video covers early vampire myths, the first commercially successful vampire stories, and the history of Bram Stokers Dracula and the connection to Vlad III the Impaler.

Student Gardens in history class: The Potato
Time is precious in class, I know, but spend half a class and plant some potatos in your classroom especially if you are in district with students who would never have a chance to do such a thing. Seeing how long it takes to grow a plant is a great way to show students how important food storage was throughout history. Read the blog to be inspired and learn about the history of potatos. #worldhistory

In Defense of Textbooks
Always demonized for their vagness, I argue that textbooks are still essential supplies in our classrooms today. Especially now during these trying times and when parents are now taking charge of their children's education while they utilize distance learning, textbooks are perfectly paced and outline the basic information students need to know which actually gives us a foundation to add additional information to the lessons. Read more about my thoughts on textbooks.

Who Should Get Credit? Erikson or Columbus
Making a decision and forming an opinion are important history skills and really lend themselves to the Erikson/Columbus debate. Especially as Columbus Day becomes more controversial this is a unique way to teach about the first European discovery of the Americas and allows your students to make up their own mind.
