Barrier to Success

When students are unfamiliar with the key terms and concepts in social studies, it can be difficult for them to understand and engage with the material. Exposing students to key vocabulary words is important not only because it will unlock social studies as a fascinating subject for them, but also because many standardized tests rely on social studies nonfiction content for their text selections. Set your students up for success by ensuring they are familiar with the most essential terms and concepts!

    Started using this at the end of this year so I could see how it was for next year. I had fifth graders saying that they wished we had used it earlier.
