In this remarkable collection of primary source imagery, each episode traces one decade of events that are milestones of the changes in certain recurring American themes.

Those themes—science and invention, the land’s changing face, race relations, labor and industry, class struggle, cultural advances, immigration, politics, and war—are shown in motion picture footage (some famous, some rarely seen) and explained by historians and other experts. Good pacing, stopping points at topic changes, and clear narration make this film and photo archive an ideal tool to spark research, initiate units, or invigorate textbook readings. Programs are easily adaptable for different grade levels, styles of learning, and lesson types.
