4 Assessments- Autopsy vs. Check-Ups In the past, our tests, grades, and report cards were treated as autopsies…. when we should have viewed them as check-ups. A Summative Assessment (test) measures PROFICIENCY A Formative Assessment (quiz) measures PROGRESS toward proficiency

5 Kyrene School District Social Studies Belief Statements The focus of Social Studies instruction in the Kyrene School District is to develop the academic content and skills in the four interrelated disciplines of history, geography, civics/government, and economics that are essential to an understanding of human experience, past and present for all learners. The following are Kyrene's goals in the four strands of Social Studies

6 History (US)  Develop an understanding of chronological thinking, the connection between causes and effects, and between continuity and change  Develop citizens who understand contemporary issues with a depth and wisdom drawn form the experience of the past.

7 Geography  Teach students to think spatially  Develop an understanding of the human and physical characteristics of the Earth's places and regions.  Understand how people of different cultural backgrounds interact with their environment.  Develop an understanding of the essential skills of asking geographic questions: acquiring, presenting, and analyzing.

8 Civics/ Government  Develop in all students the knowledge and skills for informed, responsible participation in public life.  Develop a basic understanding of political and government and practice the skills of good citizenship.  Develop an understanding of the importance of each person as an individual, and the respect for human and civil rights of all people.

9 Economics  Develop an economic way of thinking and problem solving in order to understand an apply basic economic principles to decisions that will be made as consumers, members of the workforce, citizens, voters and participants in a global marketplace.

11 CMS Practice Policy  Practice work will be accepted until the day of the unit assessment. However, after the assessment has been taken, the practice work will no longer be accepted.  I usually give one homework assignment a week- practice varies.  Students will need to study for test or quizzes every week.  Work not completed in class is usually homework.

12 Reassessments  Reassessments are available only on the final unit test  Keep in mind they will be tracking their progress so that should be a predictor as to how they do on the final unit test.

13 Textbooks and Materials Students do not have a textbook to take home because it is all online. Any student who does not have internet access may be given a book to take home.  The book will be available online at ClasszoneClasszone  Each student will have a sign-in and password.
