Global Unit 5 Test Review Sheet

February 9, 2020 by mrcaseyhistory

Welcome to the Digital Review Sheet for the Unit 5 Test! I hope this style, with the attached resources, will prove very helpful to you. You are required to answer all of the below questions, either on loose leaf or typed and printed. Since the numbers restart for each section, you are required in include on your answer paper the heading of every section of questions, as well as the title of this page as the title of your sheet.

I tried to link as many resources as I could right here within the review sheet for your convenience. However, all materials, including PowerPoints, readings, and worksheets can be found on my website, You can click on your class and skim through the lessons.

I have given you some but not all of the relevant Global Textbook summaries as a simple study resource. You can always find all those summaries on the Summaries page on my website, but I am linking them below in the relevant sections.

Don’t forget to refer to your own class notes as well, and your answers to the online homeworks, which you should be able to find in your email.

You should ABSOLUTELY also check out my Instagram @globalkhan for past review in the story highlights (look for more than one with Unit 5 in the title) as well as NEW REVIEW STORIES to be posted between now and the test, which give you a chance to ask questions and have responses posted for everyone. These will also be saved in the above-mentioned highlights, so if you miss them, that’s where they’ll be!
