Consider selecting shorter segments from the one-hour video to present to your class. Look for sections focused on ideas you would like to explore with your students.
Before your students start watching, introduce the program or segment, and direct their viewing by asking a question that they will find the answer to as they watch. Consider assigning individuals or groups to focus on one area of the video such as colonial days, transportation, people, etc. and following up with a report at the conclusion of the video.
Consider stopping the video at certain points to discuss points expressed in a certain section, or to emphasize an idea.
Review together what they have seen. Do any of the students need to see the segment again to review some of these points?
