Historic American Productions Presents...

The Pioneer Skills Series

Historic American Productions, Inc. proudly presents the Pioneer Skills video series. This eight-tape series is an exciting educational tool designed to enhance the teaching of American history by promoting interest in the skills that were instrumental in establishing the United States.



Each tape highlights a different skill.

Each video presents the historical perspective of a specific skill from its origin through the colonial and westward expansion of the United States to its present day application.

The actual skill is then demonstrated by an expert craftsman; a summary follows, leading to a test.

Each test consists of ten questions: fill in the blank, True/False, and multiple choice. A response question is added for extra credit and/or further discussion. The test section concludes with an answer session.
