13th warrior is a movie adaptation from the Michael Crichton book "Eaters of the Dead". Eaters of the Dead is Michael Crichton's version of the Viking epic Beowulf. I use this movie to show my students how the Norse interacted with other cultures.
An epic 700-year battle for freedom begins as the barbarians rise against Rome; Hannibal builds a rebel alliance and conquers the Alps; the shepherd Viriathus unleashes a wave of resistance to save his people from destruction.
American President helps show my students, in a fun way, some of the tasks that the President of the United States has to go through. I.E. public opinion, military leader, lobbying for votes.etc. The movie does have some mild language.
I use this movie to teach my Civil Liberties Unit. The Civil War comic series was created right after the Patriot Act was signed. The movie is a fun way to teach the students the National Security v Civil Liberties debate. I use the Sokovia Accords
