How I Use It
I think this resource will be useful to compliment U.S. history and social studies teachers. I think it will be very helpful to students who need an addition visual for them to understand the materials. I may assign certain video as homework in addition to the text readings.
My Take
Ken Burns has always been known for engaging documentaries and this website organizes those longer films into short, more digestible sections. Overall, a very useful resource for those who needs a bit of visual aid beyond the text readings to make things more understandable.
