    Remember, Pacing guides also includes terms.  I do not require students to define all for a grade.  This sheet exists for students to be able to organize their thoughts in studying.  Some students may find it helpful to create flash cards with these terms.  Use what is helpful for you.  Students were also told that anything in the reading or in class (that is not on the term list) is fair game for the tests.
     
    The pacing guide also includes some questions that students can use in preparing for the test.  I do generally create a constructed response question from this list.
