In Episode 1 of "The West" (The People) students watch how the arrival of Europeans to the West drastically changes the lives of the Native peoples living there. Students will answer video questions while watching this episode, and then will use this information to answer a final analysis question.
"The West begins as the whole world to the people who live there. It becomes a New World when Europeans arrive, a world shaken by incompatible visions. And almost three centuries later, when Lewis and Clark venture west to find a Northwest Passage, this world becomes the testing-ground for a young nation's continent-spanning dream." - PBS
