Product Description
7 Comprehensive Multiple Choice Worksheets, one each for Lessons 1 through 7 of We the People -- a complete teaching or assessment solution for all of Unit 1 of the text!

If you have used We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution, you have probably had the same reaction to it as myself -- fantastic content, placing government concepts in their rich historical context where they are best understood.... but where’s the testing program?

Indeed, the major drawback I have found to the We the People textbook is a lack of strong ancillaries. That is why I have developed my own. This worksheet has been used by real high-school students and has kept them engaged and on-task while providing me, their teacher, with valuable information about how well each of them is mastering government concepts.


We the People Worksheets work well as guided readings

The download includes seven PDF files, one for each lesson in Unit 1 of the text. Within each file, all questions are presented in “lesson order,” so that they can be used as a guided reading activity if desired. Each worksheet covers in detail the main points of the lesson as well as important details, typically containing 40 or more multiple-choice questions.


We the People Tests -- another way to use the worksheets!

I often use these worksheets as We the People tests, requiring students to answer questions from memory alone. I have found that if students read the text with partners and discuss it along the way, they have excellent recall and can easily achieve scores of 80% and higher even without looking back in the textbook to check their first impressions!


Lesson content included in these We the People worksheets:

You will get one comprehensive worksheet covering *each* of the following topics:

• What did the Founders think about constitutional government?
• What ideas about civic life informed the generation that wrote the U.S. Constitution?
• How did modern ideas about individual rights develop?
• How did American Constitutionalism develop out of British ideas and traditions?
• What did Colonial Americans believe about individual rights and constitutional government?
• Why did the American Revolution happen?
• What did early state constitutions say about government and individual rights?

Along the way, students will explore a myriad of topics including what colonial American life, Aristotle, written constitutions, Greco-Roman values, Judeo-Christian values, civic virtue, classical Republicanism, natural rights, John Locke, capitalism, the Enlightenment, English common law, the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence, checks and balances, separation of powers, and much, much more!
