This lesson is a set of detailed viewing questions and a short quiz for the History Channel's video America The Story of US Episode 2 Revolution. The video begins with the British attack on New York City, the British plan to cut the American Colonies in two, Daniel Morgan and his frontier army and their use of guerrilla tactics, the Battle of Saratoga, French aid to the colonies, the Colonial Armies winter at Valley Forge, the assistance Baron Vonsteuben to Washington, and the ultimate defeat and surrender of the British at Yorktown.
This viewing guide is designed to keep the student's engaged and learning important information they will need to know. I have personally used this guide in my class for several years and the student love it! They really enjoy the America The Story of US series as well! The quiz is strictly a viewing quiz to ensure that the students have engaged themselves while watching the video. You may wish to stop the video and discuss the answers with the students to ensure that they have gathered the best information.
I hope you and your students enjoy the guide as much as I have creating it! Be sure to check out my other products and leave feedback!
