We are getting ready to finish our Thanksgiving unit. We spent over 2 weeks discussing who the Pilgrims are, why they came to America, how they came to America, who they met when they arrived, how they lived in America and how the past is different from the present. Now that we are coming to the end of the unit, the question is....
How do you assess if your students are meeting the History Social Science Standards you are teaching? This can be a very tricky and daunting task. Sure you can call on them one by one and ask them oral questions, but with 24 students how is that even possible? It isn't. We need assessments that will give us accurate results for each student as well as a way to communicate those results to the parents. Here is what we came up with.
|The students are cutting the title and the pictures out. They glue the title and the pictures in the correct sequence on a separate piece of construction paper.|
|This rubric gets stapled to the assessment and sent home.|
|The students are cutting out the Past & Present Sorting pictures and gluing them under the correct word.|

We also came up with an assessment using the Smart Board and Smart Board Responders or Turning Point Clickers.
Here are some sample pages of our Notebook assessment.
