Great place to start
5 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a teacher, I have to say that this series is the perfect set-up for introducing a president to the class. The focused narrative, pictures, and antedotes keep the attention of most students. Of course, they remember that Taft got stuck in the bathtub, and comment that FDR's wife was less than beautiful, but hey, they're high school juniors.

Of course they remember more than the silly stuff. While reading a chapter or an essay about a president, it is remarkable to find out how much they remember from the videos. Wilson the moralistic president, TR the man who built the canal while Congress debated, "Silent Cal," Hoover the engineer, Washington, the man of "firsts," G.W. our beloved cowboy, Reagan the Great Communicator, Naxon and Watergate...the list goes on. A great way to break up a class for 5-10 minutes and give the students a chance to see instead of read.
