Eminent Domain is done very well using a teen narrator. The examples and focus on recent Supreme Court case is excellent and relative to students. The line of thought provoking questions encourages discussion, debate, and further research. Students depart with a wider understanding of constitutional dilemmas and powers of local boards.

This was a great video....short and to the point with great stories that my students could relate to. It took what I once thought was a difficult topic to teach and made it completely understandable for my high school students. Thank you!

My students connected with the real people in the video. Before the video, they didn't understand how property could be taken away from it's owner. After the video, we had such an interesting discussion! They really learned a lot from the video. It was awesome in that it assisted me in teaching this confusing topic. Thank you.

This is a fabulous video It presents a fantastic opportunity to illustrate the fifth amendment and how it is not necessarily being applied the way our founding fathers had intended. It lead to a great conversation and the follow up info provided by izzit added greatly to the presentation. Thanks you for a fantastic film.

This is a wonderful production that explains very clearly a concept that can be difficult to grasp . My students would not have understood the problems with eminent domain as thoroughly without the actual cases that were highlighted and the questions that were raised by the program. Thank you for another excellent video!

This video is excellent in teaching our unit for 7th grade social studies and relates to the DE State Standard relating to eminent domain in which the Kelo case is the main focus. I would reccommend this video be used in all State of Delaware middle schools to accomplish the goal of teaching eminent domain.
