The questions are organized into 12 subtopics divided among 4 major categories: 5 topics under History, 5 under Government, 1 under Economics, and 1 under Geography. The topic areas are: (1) a new world, a new nation (1492-1783); (2) nationalism and sectionalism (1783-1865); (3) industrializing America (1865-1919); (4) democracy and adversity (1919-1945); (5) emergence as a world power (1945-1989); (6) the living Constitution; (7) the legislative branch; (8) the executive branch; (9) the judicial branch; (10) state and local governments; (11) dollars and sense; and (12) America's land and people. Three appendices are included: (1) "The Declaration of Independence"; (2) "The U.S. Constitution"; and (3) "Great Issues in U.S. History." A glossary and a 31-item selected bibliography are also included. The attached student answer key provides answers to most of the questions, but contains some blanks for students to complete. (DB)
