State Social Studies Assessment

From the CDE website: Colorado’s new social studies summative assessments are scheduled to begin in the spring of 2014. These assessments will be designed to measure Colorado students’ understanding and abilities in each of the four standards (History, Geography, Economics and Civics) found in the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS). The concepts and skills in the CAS build across the years such that lower years’ standards are reflected in the standards for subsequent years. Due to this progression, concept and skill retention from previous years is inherent and will be expected. Therefore, it is important for students in all grades to have access to social studies concepts that build toward mastery.  To view the 4th grade assessment framework, go to: http://www.cde.state.co.us/assessment/CoAssess-FrameworkSocialStudies.asp

Social Studies - Great Resources

The Library of Congress website offers many free resources for teaching about primary sources, including access to a wide array of primary sources.  You can even search for classroom materials that align to your grade level and to the Common Core State Standards!  http://www.loc.gov/teachers/index.html
