Updated: Presentations Also Have Short Films

I just uploaded some short films to each chapter presentation to help you prepare and learn more about our nation’s history. There is a link under “Films” on each chapter’s presentation page. Once you click on it, you will be redirected to another page where there is a video library waiting for you featuring a video for each section of the chapter. They are only a few minutes long and do a great job of summarizing what each section is about. Take a few minutes to help yourself study and watch those videos!

Extra Credit: Founding Father Fridays Sam Adams

You want some extra credit? Here’s your chance!

On Glenn Beck, 5pm Fox News Channel, they will be discussing Samuel Adams. If you hand write me a hand-written report on what was discussed (It has to be to my satisfaction! Not just a couple of sentences!) I will give you an A which will count as a quiz grade.

What should you write about? Here are some suggestions:

  • Outline in your paper what the show mentioned about Sam Adams and his character.
  • What did you find interesting?
  • Would you make the same decisions Sam Adams did?
  • How would you describe his character?

Turn it in to me when I see you in class on Tuesday!

Next Up: Chapters 12 and 13

In order to prepare you for the next test (on chapters 12 and 13 on May 12th), I have created new study guides for both chapters.

Those of you who may have worked ahead and have already done Chapter 12’s review, will have to get a copy of the new updated version.

These study guides cover all the possible questions on the test. We will be working on them in class in our groups, and then review them. Be sure to hold on to your copies so that you can study them. You will find them under > Study Tools > Chapter Review section of the site.

Updates: Presentations and Reviews

I’ve made a few subtle changes: the test reviews for each chapter are now located under >Study Tools > Chapter Reviews. Look there for the worksheets which will help you get ready for each chapter’s materials and the tests. Download and bring to class!

The other change is that I will start uploading the presentations in class after I present them. This way you can study them and compare your notes to them. Find them under > Presentations > and the chapter number. Click on this link to see where Chapter 9’s presentation is.

Practice for Chapter Quizzes Now Available

I just uploaded some practice quizzes for chapters 12, 13, 15, and 16. These are not going to be identical to the quizzes you get in class – but they will help you analyze what information you should know for the quizzes and the tests.

They are online and will allow you to practice and get instant feedback. They also tell you where in the book you need to look should you need to find the answer.

To access them, just follow this link. Or, place your mouse over the Review tab and navigate to the Quizzes page. Like this > Review > Quizzes.
