This video guide contains 25 questions from the episode of "America: The Story of US" entitled Bust. The questions go in order and force the students to track and pay attention during the viewing. The episode itself is excellent for the Great Depression in the early 20th Century. Some topics covered include the bank crash, the Dust Bowl, the building of the Hoover Dam, the rise of Las Vegas, radio, Mount Rushmore, and Joe Louis vs. Max Schmeling. It also briefly introduces events in Europe leading to WWII.
