I gave this resource a two because I didn't see clear evidence of collaboration. This may be an area to consider in remix/revision.

Technology features offer students the opportunity to practice their speaking and listening skills while studying content standards in American History.

Full alignment to depth and breadth of standard NCES.7.H.2.3 and partial alignment with only covering the United States part of standard NCES.8.H.3.2 but should be considered as part of the unit that would address the standard. Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource.

Evidence of Assessment Strategies .
Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standards.

Strengths: The videos provide for different learning styles and provided high level of engagement for students

Opportunities: The resource may need more focus solely on Cornelius Vanderbilt for EC or ELL students in order to streamline the objective for them. Vocabulary such as robber baron and captain of industry need to be defined at the beginning of the lesson in order for the learning goal to be met.
