Digital Story: Basic Principles of the United States Constitution
From YouTube, produced by Hannah Thompson
This is a video made by students. It offers a basic review of the Constitution, but doesn't offer enough examples to be of use to those unfamiliar with the subject. Best used as a quick overview or introduction. A handout with the information would be of value for students who don't understand such concepts as federalism. (03:22)

The Bank of the United States (1st and 2nd)
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
Video accompanied by text. "One area of particular concern among bankers, businessmen, and government leaders was banking on the frontier. Frontier land was cheap, and speculators would buy large tracts expecting the price to go up as settlers entered the region. In order to finance their investments, speculators borrowed as much as they could from “wildcat” banks that sprang up to cater to this demand. These banks were themselves often speculative in nature, being more interested in making a fast dollar than building a secure banking business..."

Immigration Through Ellis Island (Island of Hope, Island of Tears)
From YouTube, produced by Charles Guggenheim

Award Winning Documentary Video Film. Ellis Island was the port of entry for millions of European immigrants. Between 1892 and the early 1950s, nearly 15 million people streamed through Ellis Island in search of a new life. This video contains the stories of extraordinary immigrants, largely in their own poignant words. From 1892 to 1954, over twelve million immigrants entered the United States through the portal of Ellis Island, a small island in New York Harbor.  Despite the island's reputation as an "Island of Tears", the majority of immigrants were treated courteously and respectfully, and were free to begin their new lives in America after only a few short hours on Ellis Island. Video is a series of black and white pictures and some black and white video.  Quality is good and information is good.  Video is appropriate for middle elementary, middle school, and high school students.  (28:25)
