Preserving the Union (10 parts)
In this video biography we get a very detailed look into Abraham Lincoln's life. The video is separated into 10 parts and plays continuously with a short ad between each part. Part 1 discusses his early life including his childhood and his introduction into politics at the age of 23 (9:15). Part 2 begins with his early adult life and the different jobs he held, his lonely stand against slavery, his courtship, and ends with the birth of his first son (9:15).
This is an interview with Judy Blume about why she became a writer and how books, such as The Diary of Anne Frank, can be a gateway to talking about difficult subjects. Teachers who desire the other two 2:50 long videos with the author may let the first video run, but the first one is probably the most valuable to students.

5.3 Global warming
To be able to understand the importance of the environment for our health, we need to know a little about the interdependence between environment and humankind.
