The booklet is part of a grade 10-12 social studies series produced for bilingual education. The series consists of six major thematic modules, with four to five booklets in each. The interdisciplinary modules are based on major ideas and are designed to help students understand some major human problems and make sound, responsive decisions to improve their own and others' lives in the global society. Students are taught to: (1) comprehend and analyze the issue and synthesize their understanding of it; (2) effectively interpret the topic and clarify their values; and (3) participate in activities stressing development of critical reading and expository writing skills and use and interpretation of illustrations, graphs, and charts. This booklet contains test items directly related and coded to the content of the third module, on culture and social organization. Items reflect a wide range of skill objectives, including application, analysis, evaluation, and synthesis, and sub-objectives based on instructional content. Strategies for remediation are provided for each objective, and strategies for assembling tests are also included. The test items are presented in both Spanish and English. (MSE)
