SS.7.C.1.2 Colonial Influence EOC Practice Item
Including a passage written by Thomas Paine in his 1776 pamphlet, Common Sense and a photo from the Boston Massacre.
The EOC Practice problem is originally created based on those released by the state of Florida. This sheet allows space for students to practice locating important information, show their work, and write their answer. Some are multiple choice to provide practice for the EOC's multiple choice responses, but they must also explain their answer choice. This is an AVID Strategy to explain what is the right answer, what is the incorrect answer, and WHY. This file is a mini DBQ section to keep up with the high demand of Document Based Learning.
This Practice Sheet can be used in multiple ways. Printed on cardstock and laminated for repeated classroom use in groups, as warm-ups, as centers, test prep, exit questions/ activities, study time at the end of the year, etc. It can also be arranged in take-home packets or INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOKS for the students to complete as homework or it can be simply used as a handout. The choice is yours!
