This Power Point is one of five ppts that go hand-in hand with my 8th SS STAAR Study Guide Packet. This Power Point contains eight pages of the Study Guide packet on a Power Point followed by 130-something slides with previous STAAR test questions related specifically to the Colonial and Revolutionary Eras. Yes, you read that right, 130 slides! I scoured through the previous STAAR tests pulling nearly every question I could find that related to this specific period of American History and placed one question per slide and then followed that slide with the same question correctly answered. (Yeah, you can imagine how much time was spent digging through all the STAAR tests finding, copying, and pasting EVERY question related to every era and sorting them out... fun times). I've used it as a way to train students how to use their study guide and then to, as a class, or in small groups go through the practice questions working out the answers. It's a great way to put the Study Guide packet to work for you and your students, and shows them the benefits of really digging into it deeply while also giving them endless questions to prove themselves and build confidence heading into the STAAR test! I know the sheer quantity of slides could seem overwhelming but with only one question per slide and the proceeding slide containing that same question with the correct answer it's not nearly as overwhelming as one might think, plus you're welcome to spend the time focusing on the questions you want and simply clicking past the ones you don't.
