To create this assessment, I went through all of NYS old 8th grade exams, and pulled every question related to 8.2 Changing Society. Question types range from DBQ, multiple choice, political cartoons, central idea, graphs and charts, short answer, maps, and general economics.
Because the Progressives unit is so large, I broke it down into three mini-units while teaching which include 1. Gilded Age, Industrialization, and the Rise of Unions, 2. Immigration and Expansion, and 3. Progressives. The Gilded Age, and Immigration folders have study resources and quizzes, while the Progressives folder has the unit the encompasses the entire standard.
Multiple choice questions have been grouped together by theme. Students will notice that the questions can be similar, and this then turns into an excellent time to discuss test strategies while reviewing the test once they are graded and returned.
The quizzes are predominately word matching, and the unit test includes 24 multiple choice and three DBQ questions with short response.
To help students review a crossword puzzle and study guide have been included. To offer additional resources a vocab Quizlet link, and a Kahoot review game with 10 questions from the test have also been included with the answer key!
Some vocab includes: Urbanization, Ellis Island, Muckraker, monopoly, child labor, mass production, nativist, Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, tenements, Temperance movement, Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, Upton Sinclair….
