    Our class LOVED this movie about John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Seeing the pictures and reading the captions brought both stories to life for our deaf and hard of hearing students during our social studies unit

    This video is perfect for our Revolutionary War Unit for our 4th and 5th grade deaf students. We filled in a worksheet for John Adams and later Thomas Jefferson after watching the movie.
