Sharon Andrews Szeglowski, M.Ed. - All books by this author
This updated manual prepares New York State fifth graders for the required statewide social studies test. The author provides a detailed explanation of the test’s contents and its different question types, which include multiple-choice questions; constructed response questions, which require brief answers; and document-based questions, each of which requires a short essay. She explains each question type with a series of examples based on fifth-grade-level social studies material, and she offers test-taking advice on how to answer the questions. The manual concludes with two full-length practice tests with answer keys and a vocabulary list of social studies-related words.
