Bell Ringer:  Good evening, my fellow citizens. This Government, as promised, has maintained the closest surveillance of the Soviet military build-up on the island of Cuba. Within the past week unmistakable evidence has established the fact that a series of offensive missile sites is now in preparation on that imprisoned island. The purposes of these bases can be none other than to provide a nuclear strike capability against the Western Hemisphere….— President John F. Kennedy, Report to

the American People, October 22, 1962

 

President John F. Kennedy reacted strongly to the situation described in this speech primarily because

(1) the United States feared an influx of Cuban refugees

(2) these missiles could threaten United States oil supplies in South America

(3) the location of Cuba would allow the United States little time to respond to an attack

(4) the United States and the Warsaw Pact nations had formed a military alliance

Student Name ___________________________________________

 

Base your answer to question 1 on the passage below and on your knowledge of social studies.

. . . In our opinion, formed from data obtained by assiduous [thorough] researches, and comparisons, from laborious investigation, logical reasoning, and earnest reflection, the causes which have impeded the progress and prosperity of the South, which have dwindled our commerce, and other similar pursuits, into the most contemptible insignificance; entailed upon us a humiliating dependence on the Free States; disgrace us in the recesses of our own souls, and brought us under reproach in the eyes of all civilians and enlightened nations—may all be traced to one common source, the most hateful —Slavery! . . .

— Hinton Helper,

The Impending Crisis of the South: How To Meet It, 1857

 

1. This statement most clearly expresses the author’s opinion that slavery

(1) should be extended into the western territories

(2) caused the North to be dependent on the South

(3) was the cause of economic and social problems in the South

(4) was the reason the South should secede from the Union

 

2. The passage of the Homestead Act (1862) and the completion of the first transcontinental railroad (1869) encouraged settlement in which region?

(1) Great Plains

(2) Atlantic Coastal Plain

(3) Ohio River valley

(4) Gulf Coast

 

3. Which statement is a valid generalization about the experience of African Americans during the early Reconstruction period (1865–1870)?

(1) They gained economic equality.

(2) Their participation in government decreased.

(3) They achieved legal rights through constitutional amendments.

(4) Their political equality was opposed by most Radical Republicans.

 

4. The system of sharecropping developed in the South after the Civil War because

(1) most formerly enslaved persons had no farming skills

(2) owners of large tracts of land faced labor shortages

(3) much farmland was ruined by the war

(4) plantation owners wanted to diversify crops

 

5. The United States government’s use of laissez-faire principles during the late 19th century resulted in the

(1) commitment of aid to small American businesses

(2) decline in the number of factory jobs

(3) opposition of American businesses to protective tariffs

(4) growth of trusts and monopolies

 

6. What was one result of the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson (1896)?

(1) Public schools were integrated nationwide.

(2) The “separate but equal” doctrine was established.

(3) Civil rights for African Americans were strengthened.

(4) Northern states were forced to segregate public facilities.

 

7. In 1899, the United States proclaimed the Open Door policy in an attempt to

(1) ensure trading opportunities in China

(2) keep the Philippines from attacking China

(3) increase trade between Russia and the United States

(4) prevent European countries from colonizing Africa

 

Base your answers to questions 8 and 9 on the speakers’ statements below and on your knowledge of social studies.

 

Speaker A: It is disgraceful that we allow children in this country to work long hours in unsanitary, unsafe conditions. The government must step in and protect our children.

 

Speaker B: We must allow businesses to compete freely without government

intervention. The best will survive.

 

Speaker C: Monopolies and trusts make it impossible for small businesses to compete. Monopolies lower their prices to eliminate competition, and then they charge consumers even higher prices.

 

Speaker D: Big business is good for the country. It increases the nation’s wealth, provides jobs, and strengthens the country.

 

8. What would Speaker B most likely want the federal government to do?

(1) Regulate child labor.

(2) Adopt a progressive income tax.

(3) Strengthen the immigration laws.

(4) Support the concept of Social Darwinism.
