Forty-five multiple choice questions all based on identifying speaker perspective or historical time period. These questions are aligned to the New York State Regents Exam for Global History, but they can be used in any social studies curriculum. The repetitive nature of the questions, as well as the specific ordering of them, is meant to help students develop confidence answering multiple choice questions based on identifying speaker perspective or historical time period.
