Very short quiz (7 questions) regarding: Washington's farewell address, Jay's Treaty, the French response, the XYZ Affair and the Alien and Sedition Acts. (Oh and the 8th question is simply asking--What's Your favorite Cereal? Because students enjoy answering random questions like that to end a quiz :) ).
ALL questions are role playing in nature, and most deal with social media/texting. For example, "You are tweeting from George Washington's farewell address--what might you say. INCLUDE Hashtags." (Possible Answer: "Washington advises against getting involved in Foreign Affairs-#MindOurBusiness) . This offers students the opportunity to have some fun, use their personalities/imaginations a bit, and retain important information.
