Description

Students struggle analyzing primary sources! These practice worksheets for U.S. History combine primary source excerpts and images with skills to help students think through the different processes they will need to be successful on state exams. Traditional strategies are often not successful in helping students practice the thinking that is required for primary source analysis on state level exams such as the STAAR.
 
After a careful analysis of test released questions, I have determined that a majority of primary source test items are dependent on four specific Social Studies skills. I have created graphic organizers to help students think through each of these four specific skills: cause and effect, main idea, inferencing, and drawing a conclusion.
 
In order to help students practice the Social Studies Skills required of the STAAR, I have created a series of graphic organizers based on the thinking of each skill.
In this resource, you will receive:
 
-An explanation of the thought process behind each skill,
Over 100 different primary sources for U.S. History – each embedded into a graphic organizer that provides practice for your students with identifying the main idea, cause and effect, generating inferences, and drawing conclusions,
-Units include: Exploration, Colonization, American Revolution, Constitution, New Republic, Industrial Revolution, Jackson, Westward Expansion, Reform Era,  Sectionalism, the Civil War, and Reconstruction
Google Slides, and
-A key for all of the graphic organizers!
