"Mary Lou, I just came across this old thread, and am sorry to hear that you lost out on something that you love and something that seems like it was a good measure of actual student learning and progression. I think I might try to implement…"

"I'm sorry to hear that. I get so focused on the negatives of dealing with the standardized test that we have in almost every subject here in VA that I never thought of standardization in a place that doesn't have state history tests. Ugh."

"Mary Lou, Thanks for sharing your story. It is terrible, but I believe needs to be shared. Could I have permission to share this on my blog? I will quote you unless you would prefer to be anonymous. I think people need to hear the negative effects…"

"I will look and see if I can find that old list. But I have to confess, you are bringing up a sore subject for me. After a decade on the job, I thought I have finally hit on a great system. The skills. the skill progress chart, etc. made the subject…"

"I'm reviving this topic- is anyone using SBG in social studies that has more to share? I like the idea of skills, it makes sense to me. I've long struggled to try and implement SBG (and actually gave up for a couple of years) because of…"

"Mary Lou - I'd love to see that list if you have access to it now. We're going to teach backwards from the Haitian Revolution to "world religions" so I think doing a skills list grading system would be awesome. Thanks!"

"I like hearing your approach. My school assesses a few skills separately from content (work effort, communication, and collaboration are 10% each of total grade) and the content is 70%. I want to/need to assess them specifically on the content…"

Mary Lou Buell replied to Michael Kaechele's discussion Non-textbook reading ideas in the group World History Educators
"Wow...I think this will be challenging for the older material.  For the history that I teach (1800-present) I rely on news accounts of the day for the "facts" of the matter...as well as primary sources.    Did a really…"

Mary Lou Buell replied to Michael Kaechele's discussion Standard based assessment and reporting (sbar) in social studies in the group World History Educators
"I do standards reporting, but differently. My standards are the 13 "skills" that I keep assessing using different content that I teach. When I give a test each question has a note under it that explains what skill is being tested.…"

Standard based assessment and reporting (sbar) in social studies

I am planning to use sbar in my World History class in the fall. I am looking to connect with others who have used sbar in the social studies classroom who will share their successes and pitfalls. I am also looking for people interesting in sharing their list of standards. Mine are a work in progress here.See More
