Great sites for online review materials

It's never too early to plan for end-of-year assessments.

Here is a list of six sites with terrific online-review materials.  Check them out now, bookmark the ones you want, and then schedule when you will start using these with your students.
RegentsPrep.Org:  This site has resources to help students prepare for the New York State end-of-course Regents exam in U.S. History and Government.  The thematic review materials are generally weak, but the links to practice exam questions and other resources are great.

VarsityTutors: This site has practice tests for AP US History and the SAT II U.S. History Exam.  The website also has a corresponding app students can load onto their devices for free.

Learnerator: The questions in this site are divided into the nine historical periods of the Redesigned AP U.S. History Curriculum Framework.  As such, students can work on the era where they need the most support.  There are lots of questions for each period.  Period 7, for example, has 113 questions.

Here are some more:

->This site has 297 practice questions presented in generally correct chronological order.  The problem here is that students have to complete each of the 297 questions in the order in which they are presented.

->Both these sites (click here and here) segment the course into historical eras and offer review questions in both multiple-choice and matching format.

With so many good resources to choose from, you really don't have to adopt one single site to use.  Instead, rotate their use so that your students get to see questions written in a variety of styles.
