COMMON CORE ASSESSMENTS IN WORLD HISTORY
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Designed to measure and promote students' command of the skills described in the Common Core History/Social Studies Reading Standards, these assessments also develop students' key literacy and historical thinking skills as they master the content covered in their world history coursework.
Crafted to correspond to one of the nine standards, each assessment presents a written primary source—at times accompanied by additional visual and written primary sources or brief excerpts from secondary sources—with explanatory text to put sources in context. After examining the documents, assessment questions require students to support their answers using specific textual evidence. The book contains two versions of each lesson—one that addresses Common Core State Standards for grades 5–8 and one for grades 9–12—as well as two writing assignments based on two of the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing.
