Chapter 10 is divided into 3 sections.
- The students preview each section to obtain a basic understanding of the objectives, key terms, headings & subheadings, and any illustrations before they begin reading it aloud. During and after reading we discuss the sections in class.
- For homework the children will be assigned a section summary worksheet and guided-reading worksheet. The students create flashcards for each section which will be collected upon completion of the chapter. The full set of flashcards receive a quiz grade. There will be a quiz after each section and a test at the end of the chapter. Tests and quizzes will be announced in advance.
- The textbook offers a support website - PHschool.com. Click on Prentice-Hall Social Studies and enter the web code that can be found throughout each chapter. There is a review at the end of each chapter to prepare for the test.
