Timely Teachable Videos - Occupy Wall Street and More

What is the Occupy Wall Street movement all about? What are people hoping to accomplish through it? How did it start? C-Span Classroom has answers to those questions and more in this week's round-up of Timely Teaching Videos. I've embedded one of the videos below.

While these videos might not be the most exciting things you have students watch this year, they are quite informative. In fact, in terms of depth of information they're a big step above what you typically find on programs like CNN Student News. If you're a member of the C-Span Classroom community (it's free to sign-up) you can explore the discussion forums to discover how other social studies teachers are teaching about the topics in these Timely Teachable Videos.
