Resource#10 The Constitutional Convention Developer: Kahn Academy Authored by Kim Kutz Elliot. This is a Web 2.0 resource. This video presentation has info about the history of our government and events that have happened to affect our government since 1776. Presentation is colorful, neat, and engaging. I would have each student view this on an iPad (with headphones preferably) then instruct them to write down ten notes from video. When finished, share with a friend. #etlobest
