This video assessments and extended response question will give you a good assessment tool as your students watch the documentary "Slavery and the Making of America - Vol 1 Downward Spiral" by PBS © 2005. This film does a wonderful job of exhibiting the changes to the institution of slavery in the 1600 and 1700s Colonial America. There are good explanations of Indentured Servitude and Slavery, as well as the change of racial slavery. These sheets work well as a guided note for viewing the film as well. The extended response question I use as an exit ticket or homework. The answer keys are included in this product for the video questions.
The questions are in chronological order with the film.The entire video is approximately 60 minutes.
