This file contains student viewing guides for Episode 8: "Mantle of Power" of the History Channel series The Ultimate Guide to the Presidents.
This video guide contains 15 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 LBJ (his section begins in episode 7), Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Obama (note that the final four presidents are treated together in the video - and the video guide).
The questions are designed for a mixed-ability group and run the gamut of Bloom's taxonomy. There is one question for about every three 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.
