This is going to be a short post for I just want to share with you a video I found on an on-line newspaper. The video covers the major events that have shaped the last 100 years from 1912 to 2012. I believe this is not the work of an amateur but a real professional body of historians. The video is illustrated with subtitles and clips about each event . It starts with Roald Amundsen reaching the south pole on 14 Dec 1911 and ends with Fukushima Daiishi nuclear disaster on Mar 2011.
If you are a teacher then you can share this video with your students and probably devote an hour or so to watching it all together then do an open discussion about its content.
Here the video of 100 Years in 10 minutes
