Biography of America is a very ambitious video and text U.S. History presentation. Much of it isn’t accessible to English Language Learners.
However, the link that I’ve included in this post, and which I’ve also added to my website’s U.S. History page, will lead you to a series of links to short interactive Flash exercises that should be accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners.
They’re each images that have a number of “hot spots” you can click on for further information. Each era in U.S. History has one of them.
I teach Modern European history for IB. Few of my students
(English Second language), who are appearing for SAT requested me to help them for their preparation on US history. I feel this will definitely help them a lot. Thanks
I may not have looked, searched enough but I do miss references to the -in my eyes- underestimated role of the dutch on manhattan and in the hudson valley up till albany in the early 17th century. The website [http://www.nnp.org/] of the wellknown New Netherland Institute, lead by professor Gehring may is giving a very well documented overview and, Russel Shorto,in his great book about the building of New York:”The Island at the Center of the World.”
