America's History in the Making: A Video Course for Middle and High School Teachers
Annenberg Media
This course for middle and high school teachers uses video, online text, classroom activities, and Web-based activities to explore American history from the Pre-Columbian era through Reconstruction. The video programs are divided into three segments: (1) "Historical Perspectives," an overview of the historical era; (2) "Faces of America," in which biographies of individuals illustrate larger events; and (3) "Hands-on History," a behind-the-scenes look at how history is studied, documented, and presented. Additional units introduce methods to strengthen teachers' knowledge of American history, while reviewing content. The online text, facilitator guide, and Web site supplement the video content. The video contains the following individual programs: (1) Pre-Columbian America; (2) Mapping Initial Encounters; (3) Colonial Designs; (4) Revolutionary Perspectives; (5) The New Nation; (6) Contested Territories; (7) Antebellum Reform; (8) A Nation Divided; and (9) Reconstructing a Nation.
