Teaching Hard History Student Quizzes

Educators looking for a way to broach the topic of slavery in 6-12 classrooms can begin with these quizzes.

The American Slavery Quiz includes 12 questions, each mapped to the Key Concepts that underpin A Framework for Teaching American Slavery. Use it as a formative assessment to focus instruction or as an introduction to inspire student engagement. The American Slavery Quiz 2.0 includes 10 additional questions aligned with the Key Concepts.

We hope these quizzes will serve as a starting point toward understanding the gaps in your students’ previous education and as a tool to help you teach this hard history robustly and effectively.
