John Green who produces the very popular Crash Course videos about history and biology recently launched a new series of Crash Course videos about English literature. So far the series has three videos two of which are about Romeo & Juliet. I’ve embedded the two videos about Romeo & Juliet below.
Applications for Education
I like the potential of this new series to be a good source of review and introductory materials in a literature course. Like the other Crash Course videos these are fast paced videos that you may have to rewind and watch a couple of times to pick up on everything in them. If you use theses videos in your classroom you may want to pause them at various points and have discussions about Green’s analysis of Romeo & Juliet.
