Middle School Social Studies
As a team, we can help our students to prepare for the standardized tests which will be given in the Spring. For the 6th and 7th grades, the iLEAP test is given. Sixth grade focuses on World Studies and 7th grade is primarily about American History. Eighth grade students take the LEAP and that particular test has items which are composed of all three fields of knowledge: World Studies, American History and Louisiana studies. Keeping this in mind, we should examine at least three topics in each grade: Comprehensive Curriculum, Sample of Test Items, and Assessment.
Please find below some assistance for the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. It may be necessary to copy and paste the websites in order to download the three fields of knowledge.
By studying and perusing these sites, students should be well prepared for testing situations. Of course, it is expected that students will keep up with daily work. Each school and instructor is asked to add some “self helps and homework assists” online for the students. Please access the school and instructor’s site for added information.
Additional content will be added throughout the school year.
