WHY THIS IS THE BOOK YOUR STUDENTS NEED TO DO THEIR VERY BEST ON THE GRADE 8 INTERMEDIATE-LEVEL SOCIAL STUDIES TEST

The state test assesses student mastery of information from Grades 7 and 8. Mastering New York¿s Intermediate-Level Social Studies Standards reviews all the most important content from both grades. A myriad of maps, photographs, and graphic organizers help to illuminate major events and developments. The Core Curriculum is fully covered in easy-to-comprehend chunks. Students learn important terms and concepts often found on the test itself.

  • Major Historical Development sections, written in a student-friendly style, provide a concise review of American history in close alignment with New York State's Core Curriculum.
  • More than 50 pages of test-taking strategies including techniques for answering each type of multiple-choice and constructed-response questions.
  • An entire chapter shows students how, step-by-step, to answer DBQs. Your students learn how to interpret historical documents and visual data, how to handle the scaffolding questions in Part A, how to interpret the "action words" used in the Task, how to organize information from the documents, and how to plan and write their essays. In addition, there are five complete DBQs for student practice.
  • Developed by nationally-recognized experts on testing, this book goes far beyond mere passive reading.

This book applies the latest educational research to help your students realize their full potential in learning. The book is based on the principles of How People Learn: chapter openers act as advance organizers; every key concept is fully reinforced with every page of the book geared toward helping students learn.  Each content chapter concludes with Study Cards and a comprehensive Concept Map. Students can review these cards on their own, use them for a Jeopardy-style game before a test, or bind them into a mini-book for a cumulative final review. By reviewing the Concept Map, students can see connections between concepts and events.

  • Applying What You Have Learned activities reinforce content and skills tested on the Intermediate-Level Social Studies Test. These activities ask students to describe, explain, or analyze information and encourage them to think about and apply what they have read. Many of these ideas are based on the state's  recommended Classroom Ideas.
  • Special Looking At features at the start of each content chapter provide a foundation for understanding major themes. These sections explain the fundamentals of geography, government, economics, foreign policy, and turning points in history.
  • Teachers can find many of the Classroom Ideas of New York's Core Curriculum fully integrated into each content chapter as Applying What You Have Learned activities.
  • Testing Your Understanding sections reinforce learning and provide practice questions just like those on the actual test.
  • A practice final examination provides further experience in answering multiple-choice, constructed-response, and document-based questions. This book also includes practice test questions at the end of each chapter. This final practice test identifies each question by unit and topic of the Core Curriculum, so students can pinpoint any weaknesses for review.
