American history is so much more than dates and documents—it’s the dynamic story of the real men and women, immigrants and Native Americans, who together built our country. Disney’s The American Presidents is a fresh and relevant narrative (developed with a former producer of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report) about the people who led this country through change and the lives they affected, from an early idea of democracy to our first African-American President.
The first in a four-part series, this DVD includes short-form biographies of the first 11 U.S. presidents—beginning with George Washington and the birth of a nation, and ending with the "dark horse" James Polk. The educational bonus feature "The Making of the Presidency" explores how and why the United States selected presidency over monarchy. The DVD features interviews and insights from political experts and commentators Sam Donaldson, Wesley Clark, Paul Begala, Melissa Harris-Lacewell and many more.
Try the interactive whiteboard content on every DVD—it’s an exciting, competitive game that uses video clips, photographs and quotes to test students’ understanding of the presidents, their political positions, and why they matter in the American story.Want More Disney American Presidents?
