NEW Antebellum Test Info…

Ok y’all – 3 days outta school for snow/ice…..this is CRAZY! I know this Antebellum has seemed like its lasted for FOREVER….and it has really since we started it back before Christmas, geez!

So here’s the deal…..in an effort to make up some time lost, I convinced Mrs. Skeans to CUT the essay portion of the test! You’re welcome! That’ll win you back a day of class time. But on top of that….you can still earn 5 BONUS PTS to be added to the test by completing the essay outline you were gonna do in class. You should have a hard copy of it attached to the back of your story guide, but if you don’t, you can print it out or type and email it to Mrs. Skeans – regardless she’ll need it by Monday! Click here: 2017 Essay Outline-sxhm6r

So…..that means your test will just be a mix of short answer, multiple choice and matching. There will also be a few questions from previous units. To prepare for those, know the following….

What kind of people Oglethorpe and his associates wanted to bring to Georgia? What scandal took place when Georgia’s governor and some legislators were bribed to sell public land to private developers at below market prices? What was the original name for Atlanta? What event led to the removal of the Cherokee from North Georgia? Which Creek chief was murdered for signing the Treaty if Indian Springs removing the remaining Creeks from Georgia forever? Name Georgia’s 2 deepwater seaports. 

Last but not least…STUDY THIS QUIZLET OVER & OVER: https://quizlet.com/258585637/antebellum-test-flash-cards/
