The United Nations Presents 2012 in Review

I'm sure that we'll be seeing a lot of "year in review" videos released over the next couple of weeks. Some  like Rewind YouTube Style will be fun looks at popular culture and others will have a more serious tone like this one from the United Nations. United Nations Year in Review highlights the major UN news stories of 2012 from natural disasters to political unrest. A PDF of the video's transcript can be downloaded here (link opens a PDF).

Applications for Education
The United Nations Year in Review could be a good video to use in a social studies lesson to either remind students about events of the year or to prompt them to investigate the events in the video in more detail.
