Just this week, we took the NYS Social Studies Exam for Fifth Grade. We have worked hard, learning test taking strategies, finding out about DBQs (Document Based Questions), and studying social studies content. Now that the test is over, tell us about your experience. What did you think it would be like? How did the real thing compare to what you were expecting? Do you think you were prepared? What do you wish you had known going into the test? What would you tell next year's fifth graders? Be honest and thorough. Remember to edit carefully. Be sure to link to the assignment.
