This live-action four-DVD set vividly brings America's story alive like no textbook can. Priceless archival footage, narration, historical reenactments, and an assortment of perspectives help fifth- to eighth- graders better retain and recall what they read. This visual reinforcement will give students the confidence to participate in classroom discussion, take tests, and improve homework performance. From George Washington and the Revolutionary War to George W. Bush and the horror of 9/11, here are the compelling stories of America's forty-three Presidents and the eras in which they served. Students will witness history as it happens, and gain a clearer understanding of pivotal events and an enhanced appreciation for the key figures that shaped history.
