HW: Study for test

Hi guys! First of all, there is a study session tomorrow at 8:15 if you want some help! Now time for the good stuff… Test hints! Your test will be 25 multiple choice questions covering Scramble for Africa, WWI, Russian Revolution, and Treaty of Versailles. There are 6 vocab questions (so make sure to study your teacher notes glossary!) and two true false. If you play the review games, you will be covered for the multiple choice 😉

Here are two quizizz games for you to study with for your test tomorrow! There are two games so make sure you play them both!

1. Open https://quizizz.com/join/  your browser
2. Enter the 6-digit game code 887111 for part 1 or 167977 for part 2 and click “Proceed”
3. Now enter your name and click “Join Game!”
4. You will get an avatar, and then see a “Start Game” button. Click it to begin!

Finally, your test will have a writing section at the end. You need to choose one of the four categories discussed in class to explain How the Treaty of Versailles helped cause WWII (include either reparations, military reduction, loss of land, or the War Guilt Clause). Here is what to include
– You need an introductory sentence (you could start with a hook to bring the reader in or just go straight into your thesis/main idea)
-2 pieces of textual evidence (that means direct quotes from the text)
-2 explanations of the evidence (use your say mean matter for help!)
-A concluding sentence (restate in a different way, don’t just repeat your intro!)
-It needs to be 5-7 sentences in length

If you write it tonight, you can use that on the test!! Good luck!
