New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Social Studies Education.
Designed for a social studies program stressing the inquiry method, this packet of sample test questions uses a thematic rather that a topical approach. The four thematic categories are geography, religion and philosophy, cultural characteristics and relationships, and socialization. Four levels of the thinking process are identified and questions are designated accordingly. Suggestion for the best use of the package are made, along with some consideration of steps in the essay-writing process in social studies. Part I introduces the concept of the Sample Question Packet, Part II deals with objective questions, Part III contains combination objective and essay questions, and Part IV presents essay questions. An evaluation form for the package is provided. Related documents are ED 067 348 and ED 076 482. (Author/KSM)
