PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A first-of-the-year unit assessment for middle school American History or Government. I used (in part) the "We the People" textbook, and our unit emphasized the ideas behind the Revolutionary War, especially the Declaration of Independence, and other persuasive documents, including Common Sense. We explore patriots versus loyalists, the role of slavery, and also study key people and timeline. We debunk some of the myths students might bring to class. Some of the questions are similar to DBQs, requiring students to draw on the text of the primary sources for their responses.

The package includes three items: a test (multiple choice, fill in the blank, short and longer answer) and answer key (for all but the longer answer questions and one short answer), as well as a study guide (see page 1 on the preview page). I used the study guide to help students prepare, and as a homework assignment. You might also pull some additional test questions from it.

Note: We also read the Laurie Halse Anderson book "Chains" as a part of this unit. The book complements these resources, but is not necessary.
