Get all 3 Common Core Mastery documents for 8th Grade Social Studies, sold together in this bundle or individually. Standards written as 'I Can' Statements. 124 EDITABLE Microsoft Word pages include formative assessments for all 25 strands in extended response format (5 questions for each strand), 25 formative assessments for all 25 strands in multiple choice format, teacher mastery check off sheets and student self assessment data notebook pages. Great documents to use in parent/teacher conferences and to show the principal in your evaluation conferences for student growth. Great to use for your Student Learning Objective, SLO's, for evaluation. It really helped me focus my teaching to the Common Core strands, provide intervention for students and eliminate unnecessary topics from my teaching.
The 25 formative assessments each have 5 extended response questions to gauge mastery level, weaknesses and strengths. I give these as pre and post test assessments and record the results on the mastery check off sheet. I also have students record their results on their date notebook pages. I have also added 25 formative assessments in multiple choice format. You can give one as a pretest, one as a posttest or use to differentiate based on student needs.
I have made documenting student mastery of the 25 social studies strand very easy with this easy check off list with quick codes for mastery level, intervention and evidence. You just have to circle and go. I like to keep it handy on a clipboard so its always at the ready. Simply circle the level of mastery, scale of 1-5, what your evidence was to guage level of mastery and what intervention you provided for struggling students. I provided two different ways to document, it's a matter of preference. Choose the individual student sheet that has all 25 strands on it OR choose the individual strand sheet that has your student roster on it.
Finally, make your students responsbile for their learning and part of the process. I have students record their pre and post formative assessment score on this data notebook page, list what activities they did to learn the strand and what they need to do if they are not scoring a 4 or 5 on their assessment.
