The Standard Deviants® deliver fast-paced recitations of key facts about American history from colonial times through WWII.
Keeping their trademark humor to a minimum and relying on brief chapters (about five minutes) to focus their rapid-fire presentations, young-adult presenters summarize numerous topics, including slavery, women’s rights, treatment of Native Americans, major economic developments from the colonial period to the Great Depression, the most important presidents from Washington though Lincoln and Reconstruction, and early wars (from the French and Indian through the Civil War). Useful for introductions or review, each DVD is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing a teacher’s guide with informational handouts, quizzes, and answer keys; the boxed set includes all the teacher’s guides on one disc.
