Introducing "History in a Nutshell" on Knowitall.org

August 30, 2018 - Posted in Education by Andrew Davis

Progress with History In A Nutshell is finally moving forward! With the success of the first two episodes, World War I and the 1918 Flu Pandemic in South Carolina, more content is on the way.

Episode three will cover what happens right after the American Revolution. Forming a new nation is not an easy task, and this new video will cover topics such as the formation of the first U.S. Congress, why the Constitution was favored over the Articles of Confederation, the Bill of Rights, and the branches of government.  Episodes four, five, and six will cover the 'Space Race' during the 1960's, in three parts: The Early Years and Project Mercury, Project Gemini, and then Apollo. 

When it comes to history, one common criticism I have heard is that history is "boring." But, history really does not have to be that way. Storytelling and delivery can make a big difference when discussing historical subjects, and the aim of this series is to make these subjects more understandable, and entertaining. History In A Nutshell episodes are designed to be short, sweet, and straight to the point. Given today's fast paced society, and ever advancing capabilities with technology, this series is aimed to help teachers and students. Some of the episodes featured will pertain to the 2020 social studies standards, while other episodes will be for filling in areas on Knowitall.org, where certain historical topics are either lacking, or outdated.  

Knowitall.org would also like to take this opportunity to open the platform to teachers, and the general public. If there are any historical topics not already on Knowitall, but would like to see covered in the future, please feel free to contact us
