Watch Ken Burns’s film, “Prohibition,” on PBS

Starts tonight on KERA, our local PBS affiliate.  A key part of history, especially for the political winds of 2011.

Should I require classes to watch it?

Part 1 runs tonight at 7:00 p.m. and the repeats at about 8:30 p.m. (if I’m reading this schedule correctly, and KERA has done this before with programs they expect to be very popular).

Part 2 is scheduled for Monday at 7:00, and Part 3 for Tuesday at 7:00 — with repeats to follow both nights.

As with almost all other events on history, extra credit is available for students who watch the program and turn in a report (at least one page per episode).

  1. Hi, your students are very lucky that they don’t have to do this. I, from Illinois, have to do that.


What do you think about this little point of history?
