24 California History and Social Studies Standards HSS (assignment idea taken from teacher’s edition, pg. 138) and HSS Dear Parents and Students, The purpose of this lesson is to re-teach two important standards that students will be tested on for the up-coming CST (California Standardized Test) for history. The second objective is to teach students how to respond to a writing prompt which is also part of one school district and CST test for English. Please know that my objective is to teach students how to respond to a prompt and tap into prior knowledge about two topics we have already studied in this class. I am not trying to impose religious views onto my students. This is information taken directly from the textbook for the purpose of delivering textbook curricula. I am re-teaching and reinforcing main ideas and objectives to help improve reading comprehension and writing skills. Mrs. Mazurie
