Read and review carefully the benchmark clarifications and content limits for each and every benchmark Use best practices. Obtain great resources for your classroom! Invest in professional development and proven materials(Gateway Book, Escambia County resources, FLREA wheel, iCivics and others) Don’t become too reliant on a textbook.
Review Camps In-house Review Camps There are 4 weeks of review allocated in the pacing guides, one week per reporting categories. Speak to Test Chair to find out exact date of the EOC, thus plan for the Review. Review Camps should begin 1 st week of April. March 19 th is the date we should be done with ALL the Benchmarks Speak to your administration about offering after school review sessions. If funds are an issue, work with administration to offer review sessions during school hours. This is ideal on dates when other grade levels are being tested. Create multiple review sessions throughout school. Work with other teachers in your department (Collaborative planning)
Using the Gateway Book as the main source for reviewing or creating Review Camps.
continued…Review Camps Resources to use: Gateway Book: 1.Review Cards 2.Concept Maps 3. Practice Items at the end of each chapter
*Concept Maps Students should study the concept map to see how different information in the chapters are related. Then they can try to draw the concept map on their own from memory, or fill in a blank concept map provided by the teacher. Students can also use the concept map to prepare for each unit test and for self-monitoring. Students should review those items on the map they cannot recall, or ask their teacher for additional help.
Summarization, Reinforcement and Resources for Different Learning Styles Review Cards at the End of Each Chapter
Practice Items based on the EOC Specifications
Other Resources to use Escambia County: Focus on CER: Claim Evidence Reasoning. What the student CLAIMS is the answer to a given question; What EVIDENCE the student can provide to support said claim; and What REASONING the student can provide to support that the claim and evidence are accurate. C-E-R: Claim, Evidence, Reasoning This practice is essential for correcting MISINFORMATION and strengthening analytical skills.
MYA- Post Assessment Item Analysis SAMPLE: Correct Answer C-E-R: Claim, Evidence, Reasoning I CLAIM that F- Separation of Powers- is the correct answer. The EVIDENCE I have is that in the box, it says that if all power is in one place, NO liberty or freedom exists. The REASON that this evidence supports the answer is that separation of powers is a key part of the Constitution which divides power among the 3 branches of government.
MYA- Post Assessment Item Analysis SAMPLE: Wrong Answer C-E-R: Claim, Evidence, Reasoning I CLAIM that choice I- Federalism- is the correct answer. The EVIDENCE I have is that in the box, it mentions all 3 branches of government- legislative, executive, judicial. The REASON that this evidence supports the answer is that Federalism refers to the three branches of government. Teacher or Student Feedback: Choice I is incorrect- Federalism refers to shared powers between levels of government- local, state, federal.
