A video guide to part nine 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 four to five minutes, although a few are closer together.
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.
Episode description from the History Channel:
Boom turns to bust when the stock market crash ushers in the Great Depression. Dust storms blanket the Midwest in darkness. Roosevelt's New Deal signals recovery; thousands find work on projects like the Hoover Dam and Mount Rushmore. Hope for the American future collides with world conflict brewing in Europe.
