These quizzes are intended to assess student understanding from the first seven chapter of the American Yawp. These are higher-level quizzes and require students to respond to short answer prompts. Teachers may decide their own grading criteria or may use these assessments as formative discussion responses depending on the grade level of the students in American History. I used these for my AP US History students as they dove into college-level texts and needed to read supplementary material at home.
**Note: The American Yawp http://www.americanyawp.com/ is a free, online text for American History, often used in the 11th and 12th grades for on level and AP students.
