This file contains student viewing guides for Episode 1: "Assume the Position" of the History Channel series The Ultimate Guide to the Presidents.
This video guide contains 24 questions. The guide is divided into segments for each president, with timestamps. The times noted on each president allow you to show only one president at a time if you prefer. This video guide includes presidents Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe.
The questions are designed for a mixed-ability group and run the gamut of Bloom's taxonomy. There is one question for every three-four minutes of video, giving students an opportunity to watch more than they write, yet still helping them pay attention.
An answer key is also included.
If you would like guides for all eight episodes, you can purchase the complete set for $5.99 at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Ultimate-Guide-to-the-Presidents-Viewing-Guides-Complete-Series-811601. The complete set is more economical than purchasing each episode at 99 cents a piece.
