The Movement That Inspired The Holocaust – Alexandra Minna Stern And Natalie Lira

What Is It?

The YouTube video The Movement That Inspired The Holocaust – Alexandra Minna Stern And Natalie Lira by the YouTube channel TED-Ed.

Here is the description for this video:

Trace the history of the eugenics movement in the US, and discover how the belief in ideal genetics led to forced sterilizations. — Since Ancient Greece, humans have controlled populations via reproduction, retaining some traits and removing others. But in the 19th century, a new scientific movement dedicated to this endeavor emerged: eugenics. Scientists believed they could improve society by ensuring that only desirable traits were passed down. Alexandra Minna Stern and Natalie Lira detail the history of eugenics in the US. Lesson by Alexandra Minna Stern and Natalie Lira, directed by Héloïse Dorsan-Rachet.

Can Stereotypes Ever Be Good? – Sheila Marie Orfano And Densho

Can stereotypes ever be good? – Sheila Marie Orfano and Densho

What Is It?

The YouTube video Can Stereotypes Ever Be Good? – Sheila Marie Orfano And Densho by the YouTube channel TED-Ed.

Here is the description for this video:

Explore the model minority stereotype, and discover how it became a label for Asian Americans and is used to enforce racial hierarchies.

In 2007, researchers surveyed 180 teachers to understand if they held stereotypes about their students. The most commonly held opinion was that Asian students were significantly more industrious, intelligent, and gentle. This might seem like a good thing, but treating this stereotype as reality can cause a surprising amount of harm. Sheila Marie Orfano and Densho dig into the model minority myth.

Can You Be Awake And Asleep At The Same Time? – Masako Tamaki

Can You Be Awake And Asleep At The Same Time? – Masako Tamaki

What Is It?

Here is the description for this video:

Discover the phenomenon known as asymmetrical sleep, where parts of an animal’s brain are asleep while other areas remain active.

Many animals need sleep. But all the threats and demands animals face don’t just go away when it’s time to doze. That’s why a range of birds, mammals, and even humans experience some degree of asymmetrical sleep, where parts of the brain are asleep, and other areas are more active. So, how does it work? Masako Tamaki explores how animals’ brains remain vigilant even at their most vulnerable.

Lesson by Masako Tamaki, directed by Biljana Labović.

What Makes A Language… A Language? – Martin Hilpert

What Makes A Language… A Language? – Martin Hilpert

What is it?

The YouTube video What Makes A Language… A Language? – Martin Hilpert by the YouTube channel TED-Ed, here is the description for this video:

Dig into the distinction between a language and a dialect, and uncover the history of standardized languages.

Outside of China, Mandarin, and Cantonese are often referred to as Chinese dialects, despite being even more dissimilar than Spanish and Italian.

On the other hand, speakers of Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish, which are three distinct languages, can usually communicate with each other in their native tongues.

So, when is speech considered a dialect versus a language? Martin Hilpert investigates.

Trace the rise and fall of the Lakota Empire, which, at their height, were the most dominant power in the American West.

In 1776, a powerful empire was born in North America. The Lakotas had reached the Black Hills, the most sacred place and most coveted buffalo hunting grounds in the western plains. Located in what is now South Dakota, control of the Black Hills, or Paha Sapa, marked the tribe as the dominant power in the American West. Pekka Hämäläinen explores the rise and fall of the Lakota Empire.
