A video guide to part five of the History Channel's documentary America: The Story of Us. Part five covers the Civil War. It was originally designed for middle school students but could work for older students as well.The guide has ten questions total - about one question every four to five minutes.
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.
Episode description from the History Channel:
The Civil War rages. The formidable Confederate army cannot match the Union's mastery of technology; railroads, supply lines and the telegram become new weapons in a modern war.
