This bundle includes resources for the popular History series, America, the Story of Us.
My first bundle included material for episodes 1-3. This one covers episodes 4 (Division) and 5 (Civil War). Note that you can purchase each episode guide separately, but the bundle saves you $0.50.
Each episode resource includes:
-teacher viewing/topic guide divided into 5-minute intervals
-anticipation guide to activate prior knowledge (includes answer key)
-student worksheet with answer key
-crossword puzzle with answer key
I have received great feedback on these products and use them in my own classroom.
A simple lesson plan using one of these resources might look like this:
1. Activate prior knowledge with the anticipation guide.
2. Students view video with a partner. Stop dvd periodically to give partners a chance to discuss key content and revisit their anticipation guides.
3. After video, discuss answers to content questions and anticipation guide statements.
4. Allow students to work with a partner on the crossword puzzle.
