Assessing Critical Thinking in Social Studies! View the preview here.
This purchase includes two different versions of an assessment for the 6 lessons in my Events Leading to the Civil War unit and a review worksheet for the entire unit. Those lessons are:
- The Lives of Enslaved People Before the Civil War Stations Activity
- Resistance to Slavery
- The Abolitionists – American Experience – Viewing Guide
- Missouri Compromise Compromise of 1850 Kansas-Nebraska Act Map Activity
- John Brown’s Raid at Harper’s Ferry Martyr or Murderer? Point of View
I would not purchase this review and assessment packet unless you have previously purchased some of the lessons. The assessments are specifically tailored to match the lessons. I do standards-based grading, and I allow students to redo tests. Therefore, one of the tests is given as the original, and the second test is given as a “redo.”
These assessments do require the students to have some knowledge of historical skills. The skills are then referred to and reviewed on the review sheet. I’ve tried my best to meet the new standards required by NYS Standards for Social Studies.
I include a 5-point holistic rubric with each of the lesson assessments. If you would like to grade these questions in a different way, you can simply remove the rubric and add in your own points or rubric instead.
There is an answer key provided for the review sheet and both versions of the exam.
This zip file includes a PDF version, a PowerPoint version, and a link to a Google Slides version for both the Review and the assessment. Both the PowerPoint and the Google Slides versions are fully EDITABLE.
