THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTS
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Mini-documentaries communicate the main events of each presidential term. Prepared by a former Daily Show and Colbert Report producer, these fast-paced three- to five-minute segments deliver solid content in a format energized by lively puns, visual jokes, and memorable quips.
Each segment ends with three bullet points summarizing that president’s major achievements; additional video essays discuss topics such as the president’s role in the economy or his duties as commander-in-chief. Discs also include teacher’s guides with objectives; suggested resources; keys to relevant national history, social studies, arts, and language arts standards; activity suggestions for grades 3–5 and 6–8; and, for use with interactive whiteboards, quotes, pictures, and video clips that are part of a guess-the-mystery-president game.
