Question Stems "Idea Ring" for Social Studies

This is a teacher tool to help you generate question stems for formative assessment for your class! As a creature of habit, I tend to ask the same type of questions over and over. This tool has helped me add variety and rigor to the questions I ask.

The question stems are general and apply to all social studies classes. They can be used at all grade levels.

Each card of question stems increases the level of rigor.

They are titled:

  • Remembering
  • Understanding
  • Applying
  • Analyzing
  • Evaluating or Creating

All you do is print, laminate (if you wish), punch a hole in the corner and connect with a ring.

If you find this to be a helpful tool, I'd appreciate you leaving feedback! Thanks! Follow me for more Social Studies products!
