This test is the ninth in a series of ten tests that cover all of Georgia's 5th Grade Social Studies standards. The test includes a variety of question types about the Civil Rights movement. I have used this test along with other tests in this series very successfully. I currently teach at a Title I school and still had nearly 70% of my students exceed state standards in 2014. Obviously there is far more to my students' success than just a test, but I know that if students can show mastery of the material on these tests, they have a firm understanding of Georgia's 5th grade social studies standards. This test can be used by teachers in other states, but it is designed specifically to measure mastery of Georgia's social studies standards.
This test is based on these 5th Grade Georgia Standards:
SS5H8 The student will describe the importance of key people, events and developments between 1950-1975.
b. Explain the key events and people of the Civil Rights movement; include Brown v. Board of Education (1954), Montgomery Bus Boycott, the March on Washington, Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act and civil rights activities of Thurgood Marshall, Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr.
c. Describe the impact on American society of the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.
SS5G1b Locate important man-made places: Montgomery, Alabama
SS5CG3b Explain how voting rights were protected by the 24th amendment.
