I like how the video used the Declaration of Independence to introduce the topic of Affirmative Action. Whenever a founding document is used to connect a current event with the past I find this is a powerful method of stressing the significance of history.
I really enjoyed the teacher's guide that accompanied this video. It created many opportunities to discuss the Declaration of Independence.
This film is an excellent addition to the 8th grade Social Studies curriculum as we study the development of government, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Thank you.
This was one of best I have seen to date. It was well done and very informative.
A terrific video for showing students the value in the freedoms they have.
