American History 1st Semester Test Study Guide:

Know these people by sight:  Name and who they are or what they Did!

The Semester test will be in two parts.  The first part will be an Identification Test.  You will need to know the people pictured in the following section by sight (who are they, name.  and what did they do).  This test will be taken first.  When you come into the room you will be given 5 minutes to review one last time for this portion of the test then we will start the test.  When you finish this portion of the test you may study for the book portion of the test or read quietly.  A time will be set for the start of the second portion of the test.  We will not start the second part of the test until then.  You will not be allowed to start early.  If everyone has finished the 1st portion of the test and had some time to review I may move the start time of the second test up some.  That will be my decision.  The second portion of the test will be from the book.  There is a review sheet below.  If you know the stuff from the review sheet below you will be able to handle the test.  We will review the information in class Monday.  If you study for this test you may help your grade.  If you do not take this seriously you will hurt your grade.  That is a simple fact.  You will not be allowed to go to the bathroom to get a drink or to your locker after class begins.  So come prepared.
