This is a video guide to part one of the History Channel's documentary America: The Story of Us. It was designed for middle school students. The guide has ten questions total - about one question every four to five minutes.
Episode description (from the History Channel):
From Jamestown to Plymouth, early settlers fight for survival. Tobacco sows the seeds of opportunity; the north becomes a powerhouse of trade. Tension, taxation and resistance explode into war as the rebels take on the might of the British Empire. Washington's army is near defeat, but new weapons and battle tactics turn the tide. Forged through revolution, a new nation is born.
I try to pick important information for the questions and space them out so students must pay attention but do not have to write so much that they can't enjoy the video.
The America: The Story of Us DVD set is available on Amazon or individual episodes can be purchased on iTunes.
