This handout is a very basic viewing guide for students when they watch Guns, Germs & Steel part 1. The first question on the handout has students hypothesize why have some countries become rich and powerful while others remain historically poor. The rest of the graphically pleasing sheet asks students to find Jared Diamond's key argument and write down evidence that supports his claim.
This viewing guide is more focused on the big picture of Diamond's claim and how he supports it with evidence. It helps students move beyond writing down facts from the video and understand the overall argument.
