The Middle School Curriculum is designed to provide students with a fundamental extension of social studies skills and concepts. The database includes exploratory questions about American History, Government & Citizenship, Geography & Map Skills, and Economics.
Question types include drag-and-drop, drop down menu, multiple choice, multiple checkbox, and short answer to better assess students with various learning styles and abilities. Artwork, photos, political cartoons, diagrams, graphs, charts, graphic organizers, headlines, maps, outlines, quotations, reading selections, and timelines are included on many questions so students can learn how to use various stimuli to expand knowledge and information when answering question prompts.
