Industry And Slavery Practice Quiz

During the parent-teacher conferences a fair number of students mentioned they had difficulty on quizzes and tests. These on-line quizzes are meant strictly for studying and practice. They are a representation of the content and style the student will encounter when the actual in-class test is taken. In other words, questions on the in-class test will be changed and some content may be added. Prior to the test I will provide a comprehensive studyguide.
