Teaching World History Through Popular Culture



The below link illustrates children studying 7th Grade History connecting what they learn in the classroom with popular culture in the world around them. I am very impressed with this idea and I believe it has the potential to not only work in conjunction with teaching History but also within Religious Education as we are constantly looking to find ways to connect certain topics within Religious Education with the personal lives of our students.

Would you be interested in doing something like this is your classroom? 🙂
