Videos: origins of Hinduism

My students are having some challenges working out how to write their essays about the origins of Hinduism in the merger of two cultures: the Indus River culture, and the Aryan invaders of around 1500 BC.  This is complex stuff, and I’m not sure how much they get.  So I made these two videos to help them figure out how these two things fit together.

I find myself wondering what you, the blog’s visitors, think of these videos.  I make them in a vacuum sometimes, and I’m always curious whether they’re so specialized that no one else can use them; or whether others find them helpful.

I also provide you with the worksheet I made to help the students actually write the paper. It’s in PDF form, but let me know if you want it in another format: Hindusim Paper
