STORY OF US EPISODE GUIDES

I have the students watch the first one in class and the rest at home.
MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA ASSIGN.
- 12 Years A Slave
video guide I show this after I review the Civil War.
- Lost Battalion
video guide I show this right before the students take their final. It is really good and shows the brutality and lack of communication in WWI.
-CRASH COURSE WITH JOHN GREEN:
These are videos I show in class as it does a great job of summarizing the event or events talked about. Each video is 10 minutes.
CRASH COURSE US HISTORY FIRST SEMESTER
I have the students work on these for 20 minutes by themselves and then have them work in a group of 2 as they go over them. ( Ill typically use these the more second semester)

These should be done for HW as I go around and check them in the beginning of class. I usually have the students discuss them with each other the day before we take the test.
- I have included a Back To School Night PPT (2)
- I have added the fill year of US History vocabulary sheets
