1. Note Taking Guide for Students: This is essentially a blank section to take notes in.

2. Teacher Notes : A place for the students to write a short summary of what they have watched.

3. 3 MINI Quiz Questions: I like to use this as a verbal check if I did not assess them at the end of the video.

4. 3 Discussion Questions : I have chosen 3 discussion questions from the video that could be discussed at the end of the episode.

5. 10 Video Guide Questions: These are 10 questions that keep the students focused while they watch the video. I have included the discussion questions at the bottom.

6. 1 Essay question: I have selected one essay question to extend the video as HW or into the next day

7. Generic Guide: I have also made a 5 word generic guide for a class that might need a bit easier version of the above work.

The election of Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 ushered in one ofthe most prosperous eras in American history. The shortages of the war were a distant memory as consumers rushed to spend their wartime savings on the new homes, cars and appliances that were now abundant. The nuclear family as the haven from political and atomic anxiety depended on rigid gender roles and consumption, and television provided the images of themselves that Americans wanted to see. But beneath the complacency of the era lurked the indicators of a society waiting to rebel, and the realities of a nation divided by racial and class conflicts. This episode examines the "Happy Days" of the 1950s and the major events of those years such as the Baby Boom, suburbanization, the advent of television, Civil Rights, Brown v. Board of Education, youth rebellions and the fears of a society enmeshed in a cold war.
