Constructed Response Question Sets Global Studies 9 No. 2 **NEW REGENTS STYLE**
This product contains constructed response questions (CRQ) for New York State Global History and Geography Regents, topics 9.5, 9.6, 9.7, and 9.9 of the Social Studies Frameworks. I realize that only 10th graders will have a state test calling on them to do these, but I have my 9th graders do 2 sets of these at the end of every topic as well so they can develop the social studies sills.
The assessments were designed following the instructions at the New York State Education Department web site: https://www.engageny.org/resource/regents-exam-global-history-and-geography-ii
These are questions such as will appear on part II of the new Regents Exam to begin in 2019. I am creating these for my students because there are no old exams to use for Regents review for this new examination. This is a very unique product and time consuming to create, so it has been priced accordingly.
Constructed response question sets consist of a pair of documents with three questions. Question 1 addresses the historical or geographic context of document 1. Question 2 addresses the reliability of document 2 based on internal factors. Question 3 asks the student to use both documents to examine cause-effect relationships, compare-contrast analyses, or a turning point.
There are two question sets for each of topics 9.5 Political Powers and Achievements, 9.6 Social and Cultural Growth and Conflicts, 9.7 Ottoman Empire and Ming Dynasty pre-1600, and 9.9 Transformation of Western Europe and Russia. The question sets are in HTML format. There is a teacher version and a student version of each. The teacher version includes source citations, New York State Social Studies Framework references, and claims from the new Performance Level Descriptors. The teacher version also includes an answer key. One question set should take a student 15-20 minutes to complete (I find my students try to write too much sometimes, if you can believe that!)
These documents print easily from your browser or can be copy-pasted into word processors if you want to make your own edits. Page breaks are built into the files so they print on separate pages, student and teacher versions. The files are named as follows: 9.5_CRQ_2sets.html, 9.6_CRQ_2sets.html, 9.7_CRQ_2sets.html, 9.9_CRQ_2sets.html. The documents themselves are PNG format images and are located in folders named as follows: 9.5_CRQ_2sets_files, 9.6_CRQ_2sets_files, 9.7_CRQ_2sets_files, 9.9_CRQ_2sets_files. This way you can use the documents for other things. For example, they could be used to generate your own enduring essay prompts (the new Regents part III) or stimulus-based multiple-choice (the new Regents part I).
ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS PACKAGE:
- The grading rubric I have been using for these. NYSED has not made a rubric available yet. I devised this from the video at EngageNY.org. It reflects the performance level descriptors provided by the State Ed. Dept.
- Two (2) PowerPoint presentations that I use to teach reliability factors. The CRQ only addresses the reliability factors of bias, point of view, audience, or purpose. However, these powerpoints include them all.
- A ZIP file named upload_teacherswebhost_com.zip. This is a little bonus containing 20 of the new type of Stimulus-based multiple-choice questions from topics 9.5, 9.6, and 9.9. This is a new type of multiple-choice that will be on the Global Regents. This package is coded to install at TeachersWebHost.com. A video is included showing how to install and edit the questions. You can generate all sorts of assessments using these (printed tests, online auto-corrected tests, jeopardy-style games, etc.). TeachersWebHost.com is a truly excellent web site for student assessments and it integrates well with Google Classroom.
