The Golden Door - Immigration Documentary, Part 2
From YouTube

Video is hosted by a group of students.  This video discusses the 1882 Emigrant Act and 1917 revision of the act.   The 1882 Emigrant Act charged fifty cents for each immigrant.  This money was to be used for the care of the immigrant.  In 1907 the law was revised, $4.00 was charged on any immigrant for the first time. The increase in immigration changed education in America.  Immigrants needed to learn English, without education it would be difficult to leave the cycle of poverty.  Public and private systems developed.  Video discusses the working conditions of the early 20th century and how the United States had changed during this time.  Video shows some historical pictures and some students acting.  Video is good quality and contains good information.  Video is appropriate for middle elementary and middle school students. (08:46)

America's Economy Roars in the 1920's
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
At the close of World War I, the United States found itself in a recession. Millions of veterans were suddenly looking for jobs at a time when industry was reeling from the cancellation of billions of dollars in war contracts. In addition, shortages of consumer goods that were not produced during the war created high prices and inflation. The cost of living doubled from 1913 to 1920, causing great distress for many Americans. (Video is narrated with slides and speeches.)

How Do Tornadoes Form?
From teachersdomain.org, produced by PBS
On average, about 800 tornadoes occur in the United States each year. They can appear and disappear in moments, and key details about their formation are unknown. These factors make the research to understand and predict tornado occurrence extremely difficult. This video segment adapted from NOVA describes the challenges of studying tornadoes and shows how computer simulations are helping researchers observe what they can't possibly see in a real storm. Closed captioning included.  Run time 06:20.

The Mayflower
From history.com, produced by History Channel
This video was about the events that led to the Mayflower and the tough voyage across the sea to get to the New World. When winter came there, many died because they did not know how to survive. Though later, the Pilgrims made the Plymouth colony and it was the start of United States. Fast paced. Makes an excellent example of what students can do with a comic book, although this one was obviously done by a professional.

The Constitution, The Articles, and Federalism: Crash Course US History #8
From youtube.com, produced by John Greene
In this video clip John Green teaches you about the United States Constitution. During and after the American Revolutionary War, the government of the new country operated under the Articles of Confederation. While these Articles got the young nation through its war with England, they weren't of much use when it came to running a country. So, the founding fathers decided try their hand at nation-building, and they created the Constitution of the United States, which you may remember as the one that says We The People at the top. John will tell you how the convention came together, some of the compromises that had to be made to pass this thing, and why it's very lucky that the framers installed a somewhat reasonable process for making changes to the thing. You'll learn about Shays' Rebellion, the Federalist Papers, the elite vs rabble dynamic of the houses of congress, and start to find out just what an anti-federalist is. (13:04)

Native Americans after Reconstruction
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
This video is accompanied by text. "European immigrants are credited for “civilizing” the United States, but prior to their arrival America had long been inhabited by tribes of indigenous people. In the fifteenth century, when Christopher Columbus landed in what he presumed was the Indies, he began calling these inhabitants “Indians,” a label that would last centuries until the modern term “Native Americans” came into use.
Prior to white settlement, Indian tribes stretched from coast to coast across North America..."

The Economics of Choosing the Right Career
From YouTube, produced by Marginal Revolution University
As many who entered the labor market following the Great Recession know all too well, graduating with a college degree does not mean you’ll easily fall into a good career. Four-year college graduates with entry-level jobs actually earned more in 2000 than they’re earning today and student loan debt burdens are higher than ever.

Does this mean you should skip college or drop-out? Not necessarily. Unemployment is still lower for those with undergraduate and higher degrees. However, understanding the economics behind the labor market will make finding a career a more manageable task.

The labor market in the United States has undergone many changes in the past few decades. Whereas we once had many manufacturing jobs that required little training or specialized skills, the labor market today demands more people who can work with computers and information technology. 

Choosing a good career requires planning beyond getting a college education. You’ll want to carefully consider the career options available for your major, as well any specialized skills you’ll need to build outside of the classroom.

It’s also essential to understand how supply and demand affect your career options. How many people are also choosing that major vs. how many employers are looking for those skills? Is a particular career path susceptible to being replaced by a machine? What about outsourcing in the global labor market? What about laws and regulation – does it require an occupational license?

There’s a lot to think about! Choosing a career is a huge decision and understanding how supply and demand rule the labor market will help you better navigate your future. (07:31)

Limited Government (Principles of the Constitution Series)
From YouTube, produced by FreedomProject.com
This video clip is the first episode in the Principles of the Constitution Mini-Series. The clip focuses on the concept of Limited Government and how it applies to American citizens. The United States is a Republic form of government. A Republic consists of elected officials who represent the people and the people control the power. The original intent of the Republic was to protect the country and handle differences between the states. National government was to be a framework of defense with no more than the minimum power required. Limitations to the Constitutions were put into place to prevent massive power and limit the size of government the founders saw in other nations. The founders’ intentions were to limit government and its powers. Each of our countries three branches was created to act in the best interests of the people. The end of this informational video contains a series of five questions covering the material learned throughout the clip. (08:02)
