Close Reading Strategies, Rubrics, and Sample Assessments for History Teachers

Close Reading Strategies, Rubrics, and Sample Assessments for History Teachers | College and Career-Ready Standards for School Leaders | 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!

Awesome Stories: Primary Source Docs for Common Core

Awesome Stories: Primary Source Docs for Common Core | College and Career-Ready Standards for School Leaders | Scoop.it

AwesomeStories is a gathering place of primary-source information. Its purpose - since the site was first launched in 1999 - is to help educators and individuals find original sources, located at national archives, libraries, universities, museums, historical societies and government-created web sites.

Sources held in archives, which document so much important first-hand information, are often not searchable by popular search engines. One needs to search within those institutional sites directly, using specific search phrases not readily discernible to non-scholars. The experience can be frustrating, resulting in researchers leaving key sites without finding needed information.

AwesomeStories is about primary sources. The stories exist as a way to place original materials in context and to hold those links together in an interesting, cohesive way (thereby encouraging people to look at them). It is a totally different kind of web site in that its purpose is to place primary sources at the forefront - not the opinions of a writer. Its objective is to take the site's users to places where those primary sources are located.
