Teaching Minutes from Kenneth C. Davis

Ken Davis, author of Don't Know Much About History, knows how to grab students' attention with little-known and often irreverent historical facts. His new series of free videos--Don't Know Much About Minutes--will be an on-going feature at dontknowmuch.

They are a great way to start off a lesson. Here's the first video in which Ken tells students what George Washington really said when he crossed the Delaware.

  1. This is what I wanted - history at its rawest form. Many students now do not even know SERIOUS and very important aspects of our history, so how do you expect them to be pround of who they are!
