America: The Story of US
When I was teaching US History survey courses, one of the best investments I made was purchasing the History Channel DVD series, America: The Story of US.
Even though now I only teach religious history and thought, I still use some of the clips from this series for my course on "Religion in American Life." The series is a top-notch production, and features commentaries from respected historians as well as popular figures such as Donald Trump, Rudolph Guiliani, Sheryl Crow, and even P. Diddy. I highly recommend this series for anyone teaching large US History survey courses.
