It also contains ALL PAGEANT QUESTIONS at the end of the document; you can copy and paste into Word and print it so you can fill in the answers with your HANDWRITTEN responses.


In the hyperlink above are Pageant Chapter Questions and Answers. You have no excuse not to be prepared for weekly quizzes because HERE ARE THE ANSWERS, oh and QUESTIONS because I might flip it!!! Study them!!! Let me speak to you who are just going to copy the answers into your Notebook Checks....you will learn nothing and this course is not designed as informational, but inspirational. My suggestion for success is that you get with a group of three and each read the questions once while the other two answer the questions. This way you will have read the questions once and answered them twice before the quiz!


If you know 75% of this information on the day of the test you should have no problem getting a 3, 4, or 5 on the APUSH test!!! Below are the questions and answers....make good decisions!!!..
