Required Reporting – 2008-09 Online reporting form In 2008-09, districts: required to report what “assessments or other strategies” number of students who participated at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

Optional surveys will also be developed to collect additional information but the results from these surveys will not be publicly reported. • 5

  6. Common Questions What help can students receive when working on a CBA? Who scores the CBAs? What does “passing a CBA” mean? How will districts have to report their use of CBAs? Next year? In the future? Where are the best places to look for CBA resources? • 6

  25. HS Causes of Conflict – An “Excellent” Position Position on which factor played a primary role in causing the conflict AND Draws a conclusion about how studying this conflict helps us understand the causes of specific conflicts in the world today. Sample: The competition for colonies was the factor that played the primary role in causing World War I. By understanding the role that this competition played, it is easier to understand current conflicts in the Middle East. Many of these more recent conflicts have their roots in the European nations’ struggle for colonies in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. • 26

  26. HS Causes of Conflict – “Excellent” Reasons Reasons - The evidence includes: An evaluation of factors causing the conflict from three or more of the following social science perspectives: geographic political, economic, cultural, sociological, psychological An analysis of specific, relevant information from three or more primary sources. Sample: Looking at World War I reveals why the struggle for colonies was the primary factor leading to the conflict. Germany believed that its industrialization relied on the ability to have access to cheap raw materials found in Africa and Asia. They feared that Britain and France would cut them out of these markets if they did not confront these powers soon. As a result, Germany was more inclined to allow the events of 1914 lead to a major conflict because they wanted to stop French and British expansion around the world. It was the only way the Germans felt they could become a leading economic power. A statement from Kaiser Wilhelm in 19** indicates his obsession with becoming as economically powerful as the French and British… (Primary Docs in World History, 1998) • 27
