America: The Story of US is a MUST have for any middle or high school student. My kids actually ask for this video. Versions of it are all over youtube if you don't have the DVD.
This collection includes:
-Guided note sheet with main ideas (and key) that is split up with MINUTE MARKERS to get right were you need to go (DVD or youtube)
-A fill in the blank worksheet (NO KEY, sorry) for a younger students or students who need accommodations.
-A graphic organizer based around recognizing causes/events and their positive and negative effects on future events. (WITH KEY)
-A pre or post-viewing quiz or discussion questions to give/have with students.
Save the 4 hours it took me to make these and simply enjoy the video and get engaged with the content.
