Mankind: The Story of All of Us is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the humanity in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes. This teaching packet covers Episode 10: “Revolutions," which develops several major themes:
• Democracy and the American Revolution
• The Industrial Revolution
• British Imperialism in China
• The Opium Wars
• The U.S. Civil War
• Disease as a historical force
• Industrialized warfare
Using any of the series’ episodes in class opens up several useful possibilities. They are so well presented that they are easily understood by students. This in turn means that episodes can actually be used as an introduction to a topic or a unit. On the other hand, they also make excellent reinforcers, so some teachers will want to show the episodes after the end of a chapter or unit for use as a review or recap.
ABOUT THIS MANKIND THE STORY OF ALL OF US WORKSHEET PACK:
I’ve kept this episode versatility in mind when making these materials. This teaching resource contains both a worksheet and a test on the episode it covers. These two components are based on different approaches to the video:
DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES
Because the worksheet and test take these different approaches, teachers can also use them to differentiate instruction. Since the test is much shorter and covers much more basic information, it can serve as a “basic” level viewing worksheet should teachers desire. The regular worksheet, in contrast, can double as an “advanced” viewing activity.
