Objectives of the MTTC History: Protests, Activism and Civil Rights Chapter

The MTTC History exam assesses your comprehension of history, economics and political science in preparation for history teaching licensure in Michigan. You'll be asked questions in four different subareas on this multiple-choice exam. Questions might come after a long passage that you'll need to read or following a map or image that you'll have to scrutinize. You can expect to look at a question and pick the best response from a series of answers.

Protests and civil rights topics will figure into questions in the U.S. history subarea of the exam; this subarea makes up about a third of the exam's questions. To prepare for the style and format of the questions on the exam, take the self-assessment quizzes we provide alongside our lessons.
