PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Story of US History Channel episodes 1-6

I like using modern videos in class that reinforce what I am teaching especially in US History. The students have traditionally love these.

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 sheets that go in chronological order for the entire semester.
