Catch the common core wave for history social studies with an easy pre-formatted test that uses the HOLT MEDIEVAL TO MONDERN TIMES text. In this assessment students either agree or disagree with a statement that is provided about each renaissance standard. Then, students need to find an excerpt from the text that supports his/her answer. Students can do this test in pairs or individually.
The packet includes teacher instructions, test answer documents, test answers, a medieval /renaissance comparison chart and a test that includes rich visuals in both paper and power point formats.
The first time I gave this assessment I heard a student walking out the door say, “That was cool….the first time I actually learned from a test.” For me, I like the idea that the students have to discuss history and support their answers with evidence from the history text!
