America the Story of US Episode 7 Quiz and Worksheet: Cities

America the Story of US Episode 7 Quiz and Worksheet: Cities

60 Multiple Choice Questions on Episode 7 of America: The Story of US America: The Story of US is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the United States in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes. This teaching packet covers Episode 7: “Cities," which means it covers the industrialization of America and its effects on the growing urban population. Using any of the series’ episodes in class opens up several useful possibilities. They are so well presented that they are easily understood by students. This in turn means that episodes can actually be used as an introduction to a topic or a unit. On the other hand, they also make excellent reinforcers, so some teachers will want to show the episodes after the end of a chapter or unit for use as a review or recap. ABOUT THIS TEACHING PACKET I’ve kept this episode versatility in mind when making these materials. This teaching resource contains both a worksheet and a test on the episode it covers. These two components are based on different approaches to the video: • The student viewing worksheet has 50 multiple choice questions, all presented in video order. These questions are fairly detailed. Certainly, many students will have good enough recall to be able to complete the worksheet after the episode has been shown, but because of the detailed nature of the questions, some teachers may want to use the worksheet as a “during-viewing” activity that will help students track information and stay on task . • The 10-question test, on the other hand, is designed to help students synthesize the episode’s information and see larger patterns that span different sections of it. My intent when writing the test was to focus solely on the “big issues” that arise from the targeted timespan of American history. Students who have paid attention to the video should definitely have mastered these basic, fundamental issues from the targeted time period. All test questions are also multiple choice. • Two answer keys are provided for all questions. One is designed for fast grading. The other one provides the full context of question and answer to help teachers review material out loud or facilitate class discussions of the material. DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES Because the worksheet and test take these different approaches, teachers can also use them to differentiate instruction. keywords: Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, immigration, Andrew Carnegie, steel, Bessemer process, skyscrapers, Flatiron building, urban crime, sanitation, Jacob Riis, tenements, Thomas Edison, light bulb, Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, worker safety regulations

We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution Lesson 3 Worksheet / Test

We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution Lesson 3 Worksheet / Test

41 Multiple Choice Questions about the ideas that inspired the Founding Fathers This worksheet is intended for use with Lesson 3 of We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution, an excellent high-school level textbook published by the Center for Civic Education. There are actually several levels of We the People available. You can tell if this worksheet matches your text by looking at the book cover thumbnail image included near the top of this page. MEETING TEACHERS' NEEDS If you have used this text, 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. A PRACTICAL APPROACH All questions are presented in “lesson order,” so that they can be used as a guided reading activity if desired. I often use them as tests instead, however, 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 being able to look in the textbook to check their first impressions. This worksheet is targeted for use with only one lesson from the We the People textbook. Check back frequently for additional worksheets targeting other lessons from the book. I plan to regularly update my store with more We the People support materials, LESSON 3 CONTENT: "This lesson examines several important historical developments that influenced the ideas of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution. When you have finished this lesson, you should be able to explain the differences between classical republican and Judeo-Christian ideas about the importance of the individual. You also should be able to explain how certain historical developments influenced modern ideas about government, constitutionalism, and individual rights. Finally, you should be able to evaluate, take, and defend positions on approaches to theories of morality, the importance of the rise of capitalism, and how the Enlightenment inspired the Founders."

WHERE TO FIND THE VIDEO American Experience: George Wallace plays from time to time on local PBS stations and is also sometimes available on streaming services. The best way to find out where it might currently be available is to run a simple Google search. TEACHER CONVENIENCE FEATURES 1) All worksheets are designed to be re-usable so that teachers can make file copies and use them over and over. To this end, answer "blanks" in the cloze problems actually consists of five dashes in a row, like this: -----. This makes the blank too short to write on; the position in the vertical midpoint of the line will also discourage students from writing on their George Wallace worksheets. Students are therefore likely to record answers on their own paper! 2) Two answer keys are provided: a full-context one which replicates the student worksheet problems so that teachers can see what students were looking at. This helps with reviewing answers with the class. Also included is a full transcript answer key which will let teachers dive deeper into the context of surrounding passages, should they desire.
