Acing the Kansas State CBA
Everything You Need to Know About KSDE's Social Studies Classroom-Based Assessment
The Kansas State HGSS standards ask students to demonstrate the ability to think historically, make claims using evidence, and solve problems. The state assessment is designed to help teachers measure how their kids are doing.
But what can the newly designed Classroom-Based Assessment look like? How is it scored? Where can I find examples? What resources are available? So many questions! Glenn Wiebe, KSDE standards writing committee co-chair, member of the rubric creation committee, and Essdack social studies consultant can help.
In this self-paced digital course, Glenn answers your questions, highlights examples, shares resources, and guides your thinking around the best compelling questions.
He’ll explore a variety of powerful strategies you can use every day to prep your kids to think historically and share some ready-to-use off-the-shelf resources that can be immediately transformed into KSDE approved state assessments.
Glenn’s educational career began at Derby Middle School, finding ways to help thirteen year olds enjoy American History. Wiebe earned his Master’s in American History while continuing to develop innovative practices and sharing them with his students.
He spent five years working in higher education, designing effective instruction and integrating video games into social science classrooms. Glenn now travels across the country as an ESSDACK education consultant providing keynotes, presentations, and curriculum development.
