Close Reading Strategies, Rubrics, and Sample Assessments for History Teachers | Common Core ELA | Literacy & Math | Scoop.it

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County has an excellent resource for history teachers. The UMBC Assessment Resource Center for Historyoffers sample assessments based on readings from six eras in U.S. history. The assessments include multiple choice question and performance tasks based on close reading exercises. The performance task assessments include scoring rubrics, sample responses from students, and the documents that students need in order to complete the performance tasks. Click here (link opens PDF) for a sample performance task.

These are the types of resources teachers need to support their implementation of Common Core Standards in the disciplines. Please share with social studies teachers!

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's insight:

I regularly work with English and Social Studies Departments--comfortable with that because most of my teaching career was in a team-taught enviornment of those two disciplines. Yes, Social Studies can be the foundation of the shift from fiction to informational text. Just sayin'--they've been off the hook from the kind of scrutiny English departments have experienced in the last fifteen years. Some SS teachers embrace this new responsiblity and some shun the limelight.
