Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge.
The Social Studies assessment on the Graduation Exit Examination for the 21st Century (GEE) is designed to measure student mastery of Louisiana's social studies content standards. The GEE 21 assesses the mastery of U.S. history from the end of the reconstruction era through the 20th century. Emphasis in high school is on U.S. history from approximately 1870 to the present (Eras 6-9). This summary guide provides a concise list of the U.S. history benchmarks and key concepts that may be assessed by GEE 21. It is intended to be used only as a preliminary guide and is not intended to limit curriculum or instruction. The guide explains that Louisiana Social Studies educators have deemed several key concepts important from the two benchmarks for this era. These key concepts are considered essential topics when covering the benchmarks in the classroom. (BT)
