A sample of five performance tasks developed to assess student progress toward meeting the content standards are given in this continuation of the social studies framework for the state of Delaware. The sample tasks provide teachers with insight into the types of performances and applications of knowledge that should be expected of students at various levels of schooling. Optional lessons and activities are used to prepare students for the assessment. A "Resources for Teachers" section contains geography sources, Delaware State Museums, and information about Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship (CEEE). The guide's assessment supplement is constructed on the idea that teachers understand that no single type of assessment serves all purposes, and all assessments have strengths and weaknesses. (BT)
