This is a video guide to the miniseries "John Adams" by HBO. It is only for Part I: Join or Die. I used this in addition to my teaching of the novel "The Fifth of March" by Ann Rinaldi. This section of the miniseries starts with the Boston Massacre, followed by John Adams representing the British soldiers in court. It also ends alluding to the Boston Tea Party. There is one scene where a man is getting tarred and feathered that needs censored - it shows male genitalia in two scenes. I easily covered it up with a folder. WATCH BEFORE YOU SHOW.
I used this in a middle school setting, where we have 5th-8th grade students, and I think it is very appropriate. You just need to watch for that one part.
