These study guides are designed to be used with my 5th grade social studies tests. I used to have my students complete study guides. I realized that my struggling students who needed the most help, were simply not studying. I created a completed study guide for each unit just to see how it would impact student performance. The results were phenomenal. Parents loved the completed study guides, because they now knew exactly what they needed to study with their child. Kids performed higher, because even my very unorganized students now had a full set of notes to study from. In addition, it freed up class time, to work on more authentic learning activities.
These study guides are also fantastic for new teachers or teachers new to this content, because it provides a summary of what should be taught in regards to each standard. The study guides are not meant to be exhaustive.They provides a brief overview of what should be covered with each standard. These study guides are also a great resource for test preparation at the end of the year.
