Saving Grace DVD: Resurrecting American History




Historic Richmond, Made Possible by a Generous Grant from the Robins Foundation. SAVING GRACE, Historic Richmond’s award-winning historical documentary, follows an expert team of historians, scientists and stone cutters from the front portico of Monumental Church to the hills of Ireland as they recreate a 195-year-old marble sculpture designed by America’s first native-born architect.

The documentary SAVING GRACE and its accompanying lesson plans meet many of the State of Virginia Standards of Learning as well as National Standards for several areas of instruction. Additionally, the documentary utilizes many visual thinking strategies and Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligence. The Foundation encourages individuals to utilize as much of this content as needed to fulfill teaching requirements.
