Products Included in This Bundle:


Assessing Critical Thinking in Social Studies!

This purchase includes two different versions of an assessment for 5 of the 8 lessons in my “Early Presidents” unit and a review guide for the entire Unit. Those lessons are:

John Adams’ Presidency
✮ Marbury v. Madison – A Mini-Play
Thomas Jefferson’s Foreign Policy
James Madison and the War of 1812 – Causes and Effects
James Monroe and the Monroe Doctrine

I would not purchase this review and assessment packet unless you have previously purchased some of the lessonsThe assessments are specifically tailored to match the lessons. (The Hamilton Rap Battles have their own assessment).

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 both assessments and the review. Click here to view more in the preview. – PREVIEW – Early Presidents Review and Assessment

Included within this bundle:

✷ Unit Review – Both classroom (PDF, PowerPoint and Google Slides) and digital versions (Google Slides) provided

✷ Two Versions of the Assessment – These are provided in PDF, PowerPoint, and Google Slides form. I’ve found that teachers are accessing in a variety of ways, therefore, I decided just to provide an editable and easily adaptable version in Google Slides.
