A video guide to part seven of the History Channel's documentary America: The Story of Us. It was originally designed for middle school students but could work for older students as well.The guide has nine questions total - about one question every 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:
Americans conquer a new frontier–the modern city–with Carnegie's empire of steel as its backbone. Skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty are symbols of the American Dream for millions of immigrants. Urban life introduces a new breed of social ills, set against the backdrop of stunning skylines and ambitious innovations.
