    America--The Story of Us: Rebels is an excellent film. The cinematography is breathtaking. It really demonstrates the challenges our early settlers had at the start of our nation.

    This is a great lesson in history and keeps the attention of the viewer, even one who thought they didn't like history.

    I am so pleased that there are more current videos for older students that are more interesting and relevant to the History curriculum! Thank you! It is fabulous to see and use this visual tool for Deaf and HH students.
