60 Multiple Choice Questions on America: A History of US Episode 1! Includes a detailed viewing worksheet with 50 questions in video order and a "seeing the big picture" quiz with 10 more questions designed to test for overall mastery of the material. With a worksheet and a quiz to choose from, differentiating is fast and easy!

America: The Story of US is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the United States in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes.

This teaching packet covers Episode 1: “Rebels,” which tells the story of America’s settlement and colonial past, right up to the “shot heard ‘round the world” at the Battle of Lexington that opened the Revolutionary War. Specific topics include:

  • The American Revolution
  • Paul Revere
  • George Washington
  • Lexington and Concord
  • The Boston Tea Party
  • The Boston Massacre
  • Jamestown
  • Plymouth
  • Puritans
  • Pilgrims
  • Colonial Settlement
  • The Colonial Era
  • John Rolfe
  • Thanksgiving

Using any of the series’ episodes in class opens up several useful possibilities. They are so well presented that they are easily understood by students. This in turn means that episodes can actually be used as an introduction to a topic or a unit. On the other hand, they also make excellent reinforcers, so some teachers will want to show the episodes after the end of a chapter or unit for use as a review or recap.

ABOUT THIS TEACHING PACKET

I’ve kept this episode versatility in mind when making these materials. This teaching resource contains both a worksheet and a test on the episode it covers. These two components are based on different approaches to the video:

• The student viewing worksheet has 50 multiple choice questions, all presented in video order. These questions are fairly detailed. Certainly, many students will have good enough recall to be able to complete the worksheet after the episode has been shown, but because of the detailed nature of the questions, some teachers may want to use the worksheet as a “during-viewing” activity that will help students track information and stay on task

.

• The 10-question test, on the other hand, is designed to help students synthesize the episode’s information and see larger patterns that span different sections of it. My intent when writing the test was to focus solely on the “big issues” that arise from the targeted timespan of American history. Students who have paid attention to the video might should definitely have mastered these basic, fundamental issues from the targeted time period. All test questions are also multiple choice.

• Two answer keys are provided for all questions. One is designed for fast grading. The other one provides the full context of question and answer to help teachers review material out loud or facilitate class discussions of the material.

DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES

Because the worksheet and test take these different approaches, teachers can also use them to differentiate instruction. Since the test is much shorter and covers much more basic information, it can serve as a “basic” level viewing worksheet should teachers desire. The regular worksheet, in contrast, can double as an “advanced” viewing activity.
