Community Convening: Assessment in the H-SS Classroom

Workshop | December 6 | 9 a.m.-12 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall

 UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project

Join Bay Area history educators for the second of three community conversations about history teaching. UCBHSSP will introduce models for assessing student learning in a history classroom.

How can we expand beyond multiple choice responses, short answer questions and the five paragraph essay? What other ways are there to assess learning in the H-SS classroom? Building on the foundation of historical thinking, we will share prototypes for assessment that can assess student understanding of how history works - historical significance, continuity and change, cause and consequence, perspective, and sourcing. For resources on reinforcing historical thinking through instruction, explore some of our Making History materials.
