IDEAS FOR USING THESE MULTIPLE CHOICE CONSTITUTION RATIFICATION WORKSHEETS

Only a teacher knows what constitutes best use for a particular class, but I always find it helpful to see what creative approaches other teachers are using. Here are some good options for these worksheets.
• Standard use: Print off copies and have students complete them as they read their textbooks. Or send the copies electronically so students can complete them on tablet/laptop devices, if that is an option in your setting. Go over answers out loud if time permits (great for discussing/debriefing the content) or collect papers to grade them more formally.
• Accommodate students who claim that the worksheets "are too hard:" Assign students to do only the evens or only the odds. Afterwards, pair students up to discuss and fill in missing answers.
• Create basic and advanced levels from the same worksheet: This is easily done by declaring that the "basic" level is odds-only (or evens-only) while the "advanced" level consists of all the questions. Encourage students to challenge themselves to do the advanced level by offering extra credit or by announcing that the basic level can only earn a C at best, but A and B grades are available at the advanced level.
• Run a game show: Have students read their books carefully and take notes. Form groups afterwards and have them pool their notes, briefly discussing Slavery and Abolition. Pass out the worksheets only AFTER this discussion and have each group fill out one collaboratively. Go over the answers out loud, calling on groups to respond. This option means making fewer copies: one per group instead of one per student.
• Run a multi-round game show: Print out only one copy of the worksheet and cut it apart to make question strips. Have students read the book and take notes. Form groups afterwards and have them pool their notes, briefly discussing the whole textbook section on the war. Then, ask the class questions out loud, handing the question slip used to the group that first supplies the correct answer. In this way the question strips become a point counter to keep track of group progress. After all questions have been used, have each group ask each of their questions of the other groups -- this provides an additional level of review and gives groups a chance to recoup points they missed on the first round. This option means making only a single copy!
 • My personal favorite -- Let students self-assess their learning: Print out one worksheet per student, but hang onto them until students have finished reading your textbook’s presentation of Slavery and Abolition either on their own or with partners. Then pass out your preferred worksheet and instruct students (again, in pairs or individually) to fill then out, books closed, to see how much they remember. Afterwards, let students use books to check their impressions and fill in anything they didn’t know. Finally, go over the material aloud to review with the class and let them fill in the blanks.
• Use worksheets as a traditional quiz!


TEACHER CONVENIENCE FEATURES IN THESE CONSTITUTION RATIFICATION WORKSHEETS
• The multiple choice worksheet is long enough that I wanted to offer teachers a way to make it instantly reusable. To this end, there’s a separate answer sheet provided for students to use if teachers don’t want them writing on the actual worksheet. This lets teachers make one class set of worksheets and use it over and over, year after year and class after class!
• Even better, the answer sheet is formatted exactly like the answer key, letting teachers line up several pages at once for super-quick correcting! It’s hard to correct ten pages at once when students use their own paper – their answers are all over the place. Using answer sheets that match the key, though, lets busy teachers be at their most efficient!
