Working with inner city urban youth, videos are a great way to generate interest. Reading skills and research skills are very often lacking and the video helps to spark the interest needed for further investigations into the subject.

Excellent video on the transition to capitalism.
I think it is good for students to see how other countries gained their economic freedom and that it is not something that we should take for granted.
I thought this movie did a good job showing the difference between communism and democracy in a language that high school students could understand and relate to.
