I created Common Core Aligned assessments that align to several chapters of Scott Foresman Social Studies Text - The United States for fifth grade. The assessments are easy to tier and incorporate higher level thinking and additional writing opportunities.
Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.
Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.
Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
