November 2009 Grade 5 Social Studies Test

Test Administration Manual

NOTE: It was just brought to our attention that there is an error in the School Administrator's Manual for Social Studies 5. 

On p. 35 it indicates "Medically Excused" as a Reason Not Tested on Social Studies 5 and this is not correct. The Medically Excused is not available as a Reason Not Tested for Social Studies.

Our Courts: 21st Century Civics

Our Courts is a free, interactive, web-based program designed to teach students civics and inspire them to be active participants in our democracy. Our Courts is the vision of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Justice O’Connor, in partnership with Georgetown Law and Arizona State University, has recruited experts in education, law, history, and technology to craft a program that teaches usable and engaging civics. On this site, you will find information and useful teaching resources for an engaging civics curriculum. http://www.ourcourts.org/about-our-courts external link



The Curriculum, Instruction and Instructional Technology Team has been posted a Champlain/Hudson/Fulton Commemorations Online Resource to help local school districts celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Samuel de Champlain and Henry Hudson explorations, and the 200th anniversary of the launching of Robert Fulton’s steamboat, Clermont. This online resource includes 10 standards-based, interdisciplinary elementary, middle and commencement level instructional modules, and 3 scholarly overviews that focus on the broad themes of encounter, trade and commerce. It also provides Strategies for Using the Champlain, Hudson, Fulton Online Resource that was designed to help local school districts infuse the modules into their local instructional programs.
