Overview:

In this video from PBSLearningMedia, John Green teaches students about recent history. John covers the end of George W. Bush's administration and the presidency of Barack Obama (so far). John will teach you about Obama's election, some of his policies like the Affordable Care Act, the 2009 stimulus, and the continuation of the war on terror. If you still can't reconcile a history course teaching such recent stuff, just think of this one as a current events episode.
