  1. Jacob! Love the topic, this looks perfect for something you could just turn around and use in class. I love how thorough you were with the questions. Great cover image as well.

  2. Jacob…what Olivia said! I am about to start teaching Reconstruction in my Ethnic Studies class. I feel like this would be a great assessment to see where students are at midway through the unit. Really well done; I feel like you covered a lot of key information here.

  3. Jacob – I agree with Olivia and Bruce. A thoughtful way to check for understanding. I like that the correct answers have some positive feedback that expands the learning and the incorrect answers offer some “reteaching.” A first-rate demo of G forms!

    PS: Don’t forget that a wrong answer could also lead students to some “re-teaching” in the form of image or video. Could add another dimension to the assessment.
