TED-Ed Lesson on the Creation of the Encyclopedia

By Maryann Yin Comment

Have you ever devoted time to exploring a set of encyclopedias? The TED-Ed team has crafted a lesson on “the controversial origins of the Encyclopedia.”

The animated video embedded above recounts the creation of this famous reference series. Over at the TED-Ed website, viewers can access a quiz, a discussion board, and more resources.

In the past, TED-Ed has produced video lessons on “how to write fiction that comes alive,” the hero’s journey, and the oxford comma. Do you prefer the print version of the Encyclopedia or the digital edition?
