PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STORY OF US WESTWARD EP. 3

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 7 PAGES for episode 3.

1. SHORT VIDEO GUIDE: I use 5-7 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 #3: Westward

Trailblazing pioneers set out to conquer the west, but find the land already claimed. Wagon trains meet hardship on the road to California's gold. The steamboat ushers in a new era of commerce, industry, and unprecedented wealth. In the south, cotton is king but slavery fuels a growing divide. Violence flares across the territories and the election of Lincoln is a harbinger of war.
