PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STORY OF US BUNDLE EP. 6-12

UPDATE: I added the History Channel guide to this. It just makes things a bit easier when trying to use and show these videos in class. I like lots of options and this is another option.

I show this at the end of each unit while teaching US history. The students really pay attention and I think it makes everything more visual.

THE FIRST SEMESTER OF US HISTORY

THE SECOND SEMESTER OF US HISTORY

THE WHOLE YEAR OF US HISTORY

I like this series and have developed some study guides that go with each of the 45 minute videos. The videos were free on YouTube as I now show them off of Amazon Prime. If you do not like Amazon prime then you can buy them off of Apple or look for them cheap on eBay.

There are 6 PAGES for each episode. TOTAL OF 36 pages.

1. SHORT VIDEO GUIDE: I use 5 vocabulary words to help students remember what they are watching. This is the easy version.

2. LONG VIDEO GUIDE: I use 10 questions to help students remember what they are watching as well as draw on current topics today. This is the regular version.

3. THREE DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: I have included 3 discussion questions to extend the discussion.

4. ESSAY QUESTION: I have also included an essay question with my paragraph sheet to have the students write about what they watched.

5. MINI QUIZ: I require my students to pay attention and the best way to do that is to make sure they know there will be a quiz if any heads go down or eyes are closed. This is a 3 question quiz with a bonus question.

Episode #6 Heartland
The Transcontinental Railroad unites the nation and transforms the Heartland. Native American civilizations decline as farmers settle the continent. Cattle replace wild buffalo as king of the Plains; the Cowboy becomes a new American icon.

Episode #7 Cities
Americans conquer a new frontier–the modern city–with Carnegie's empire of steel as its backbone. Skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty are symbols of the American Dream for millions of immigrants. Urban life introduces a new breed of social ills, set against the backdrop of stunning skylines and ambitious innovations.

Episode #8 Bust
Boom turns to bust when the stock market crash ushers in the Great Depression. Dust storms blanket the Midwest in darkness. Roosevelt's New Deal signals recovery; thousands find work on projects like the Hoover Dam and Mount Rushmore. Hope for the American future collides with world conflict brewing in Europe.

Episode #9 Boom
America strikes oil and the boom time begins. Henry Ford brings the motorcar to the masses; the nation hits the road. Massive engineering projects modernize the West. Intended to cure vice, Prohibition fuels the growth of organized crime in burgeoning cities.

Episode #10 WWII
The attack on Pearl Harbor brings America into World War. The war effort revitalizes the nation's economy. American innovation and manufacturing might invigorate the Allies in Europe and in the Pacific, the ultimate piece of technology ends the war; a new global superpower takes the stage.

Episode #11 Superpowers
America becomes a global superpower; technology fuels a boom in the economy and the population. American pioneers conquer new frontiers, from the jet age to the space age, and run headlong into a new threat: Communism.

Episode #12 Millennium
The Cold War is the first test for the new superpower. The Challenger disaster and 9/11 are tragedies that challenge the nation. From the television to the credit card and the personal computer, technology drives America into the 21st Century.
