Guided questions that go along with part 4 of the 12 part History Channel Documentary "America the Story of US". Discusses the Erie Canal, Industrial Revolution, Slave Auctions, The Major Abolitionists, and 1860 election
Excellent visual for students. Used as a Docudrama and engages all different levels of Social Studies students. Even students uninterested in Social Studies love this 12 part series
DVD's can be purchased here
If you do not want to purchase DVD, there are sometimes links on the internet at video.google.com. I highly suggest the DVD purchase as it will be a great to use for 7th and 8th grade Social Studies that go along with the curriculum.
I suggest stopping every 5 minutes throughout the video to check for understanding and answer the guided questions.
