This study guide encompasses the Virginia standards of learning objectives for United States History to 1865; USI5d, USI6a, USI6b, USI6c, and USI6d. This study guide is set up for students to be able to complete independently either in class or at home, after each objective is taught or at the conclusion of the unit. The study guide is broken down by objective so it is more easily able to assign sections and focus on areas of need. I kept the study guide as a Word document so that if you would like to add images it should be easily able to do, but did not want to include some images that I originally had due to copyright laws. The study guide also includes two versions, one that requires more writing and in-depth answers and the other has assisted answers; this makes for easy differentiation. An answer key is also included.
