1 What Are The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)? Eighth Grade U.S. History to 1877 SAISD Social Studies Department 406 Barrera Street San Antonio, Texas SAISD Social Studies Department Page 1

2 What Are The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)? What Are The TEKS? The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (or TEKS for short) is a list of what you need to know and what you should be able to do by the time you finish a course in any subject area. If you went to any school in the state of Texas since Kindergarten, your teachers were provided with the TEKS for what they were teaching. Why Are They Important? It is important to know what the TEKS are so you know what is expected of you during the year. Also, since you are going to be assessed by a state exam (STAAR) this year, the TEKS let you know what information might be on the test. Where Can I Find Them? The TEKS are posted on the Texas Education Agency s website found at ritter.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter113. You can also search for them on the internet by using U.S. History Since 1877 TEKS as your keywords. How Do I Read Them? At first glance, the TEKS for any subject look like an outline for a research paper. (3) History. The student understands the political, economic, and social changes in the United States from 1877 to The student is expected to: (A) analyze political issues such as Indian policies, the growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism; (B) analyze economic issues such as industrialization, the growth of railroads, the growth of labor unions, farm issues, the cattle industry boom, the rise of entrepreneurship, free enterprise, and the pros and cons of big business; (C) analyze social issues affecting women, minorities, children, immigrants, urbanization, the Social Gospel, and philanthropy of industrialists; and (D) describe the optimism of the many immigrants who sought a better life in America. How the TEKS look online They appear like that because they are part of the Texas Education Code (TEC) and the Texas Administrative Code (TAC). In other words, they are part of state law.

3 What Are The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)? What Am I Looking At? When you look at the TEKS, they seem complicated at first. However, when you first look at anything new, you tend to look at different pieces before understanding the big picture. For example, when you are shown a picture, most will look at the different details before determining whether or not you like the picture as a whole. Understanding the TEKS and what you need to know by the end of the year is like the same thing. What Are The Parts Of The TEKS? Whether you are in science, social studies, math, language arts, band, or physical education, there are TEKS that outline what is to be taught. No matter which subject area, all TEKS have four basic parts. Part 1: The Strand The strand is a group of TEKS that have a common theme or concept that they share. In social studies, there are eight different strands that the TEKS are classified by: 1. History - The people, places, and events 2. Geography - How people affect the planet, how people affect people, and how the planet affects people 3. Economics - How people/governments create/lose wealth 4. Government - How different types of governments are created, how they operate, and how they change over time 5. Citizenship - How people in different societies participate in government 6. Culture - How different societies live and interact with other societies 7. Science, Technology and Society - How advancements in technology, science, and medicine affect societies 8. Social Studies Skills - How to develop research, reading, thinking, writing, and communication skills Part 2: The Knowledge Statement The knowledge statement is always the sentence that follows a number in the TEKS. The knowledge statement gives you the big idea or concept that has to be understood. Part 3: The Student Expectation The student expectation is the part of the TEKS that always follow a letter in the TEKS. The student expectation tells you exactly what you need to know as it relates to the knowledge statement. More importantly, student expectations are not just lists of stuff you have to memorize and repeat back. They tell you how much you have to understand something and how you are going to show how well you know it. SAISD Social Studies Department Page 3

4 What Are The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)? So What Do I Do? The important thing to remember when looking at the TEKS is understanding exactly what you need to know and how you can explain it back to someone else. Before going any further, lets take some time to break down a few of the TEKS for U.S. History for practice. Strand Knowledge Statement (3) History. The student understands the political, economic, and social changes in the United States from 1877 to The student is expected to: (A) analyze political issues such as Indian policies, the growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism; Student Expectations (B) analyze economic issues such as industrialization, the growth of railroads, the growth of labor unions, farm issues, the cattle industry boom, the rise of entrepreneurship, free enterprise, and the pros and cons of big business; (C) analyze social issues affecting women, minorities, children, immigrants, urbanization, the Social Gospel, and philanthropy of industrialists; and (D) describe the optimism of the many immigrants who sought a better life in America. So, in our example above, the student expectations (A-D) belong in the HISTORY strand. Therefore, we know that the student expectations have to do with people, places, and events from the past. Also, we read the stem and we then find out that the student expectations (A-D) have something to do with the political, economic, and social changes in the United States during the years Finally, we read the student expectations to find out what specific things we need to find out about and at what level do we need to understand them.

5 What Are The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)? (3) History. The student understands the political, economic, and social changes in the United States from 1877 to The student is expected to: (A) analyze political issues such as Indian policies, the growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism; (B) analyze economic issues such as industrialization, the growth of railroads, the growth of labor unions, farm issues, the cattle industry boom, the rise of entrepreneurship, free enterprise, and the pros and cons of big business; (C) analyze social issues affecting women, minorities, children, immigrants, urbanization, the Social Gospel, and philanthropy of industrialists; and (D) describe the optimism of the many immigrants who sought a better life in America. To take a deeper look, let s take one student expectation and make a sentence out of it: (3) (A) The student is expected to analyze political issues such as Indian policies, the growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism. Now, break down the sentence into pieces: Students are expected to analyze the political issue of Indian Policies. Students are expected to analyze the political issue of the growth of political machines. Students are expected to analyze the political issue of civil service reform. Students are expected to analyze the political issue of the beginnings of Populism. Keep in mind that the four items listed above are things that were going on from (We know this from the Stem portion) Notice that the word analyze is underlined in each of the sentences above. Another important feature of the student expectations is the verb. All student expectations have verbs and the state uses different verbs throughout the TEKS. The verbs are clues to how much you know about a certain topic. Sometimes, the state expects you to identify (recall) something. Other times, the state wants you to analyze (examine what something means and understand why something is important) people, places, and events. Therefore, it is important to look at the entire sentence to find out not only the what you need to know but also the skills you need to show. SAISD Social Studies Department Page 5

6 What Are The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)? Returning to Breaking It Down Now we have examined one single student expectation, lets go back to it one more time to string together what we need to do. The student is expected to analyze political issues such as Indian policies, the growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism. Now that we have defined what we have to know, we have to investigate political issues during the years between 1877 and 1898 and: Define political machines, Indian policies, growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism. Explain how political machines, Indian policies, growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism were political issues during 1877 through Analyze how political machines, Indian policies, growth of political machines, civil service reform, and the beginnings of Populism affected people and events politically during 1877 through We have just examined one student expectation out of the 130 student expectations in U.S. History Since Putting All The Pieces Together: If you examine the chart on Page 10, you will see the people, places, events and concepts that are covered in your TEKS. It seems overwhelming in the beginning to look at all of the student expectations and trying to figure out how all of this information will stay in your memory. However, when examining the student expectations, you will begin to notice patterns of how things are connected together! SAISD Social Studies Department Page 6

7 What Are The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)? The TEKS is not only about people, places, and events from the past. The TEKS are also about developing your skills to think as a historian, economist, geographer, and political scientist. The Social Studies Skills are a series of student expectations that are listed at the end of every subject and grade level since Kindergarten. The reason they exist is because we want you to develop and use your critical- thinking skills. You should also be able to use a variety of primary and secondary source material to explain and apply different methods that historians use to understand and interpret the past, including multiple points of view and historical context. Basically, the state and your teachers want you to become a researcher and reporter of the past and present. The way to accomplish this is to use a variety of rich primary and secondary source material such as biographies, autobiographies, landmark cases of the U.S. Supreme Court, novels, speeches, letters, diaries, poetry, songs, and artworks during the year. When it comes to assessing your skills on STAAR, in the 8th and 11th grades, it is expected that you can analyze a visual and draw a historical conclusion based on that visual. Look at the examples below to find out how visuals can make a question more difficult: Example 1 President Franklin D. Roosevelt s goal concerning the Supreme Court was to A) increase ethnic and racial diversity B) insure support for New Deal legislation C) appoint justices who would use a strict interpretation of the Constitution D) strengthen judicial independence Example 2 QUALIFYING TEST FOR SUPREME COURT JOBS According to the opinion of the cartoonist - A) President Roosevelt was looking to increase his power over the Supreme Court. B) the Supreme Court at that time needed to go along with the New Deal policies. C) the Supreme Court was not following the Constitution. D) President Roosevelt was agreeing with the justices of the Supreme Court. Source: Edward S. Brown, New York Herald Tribune, February 12, 1937 (adapted) During your studies, you will be shown how to analyze visuals, speeches, and other types of documents so you can explain what they mean by using your skills!

11 Eighth Grade Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (1) In Grade 8, students study the history of the United States from the early colonial period through Reconstruction. The knowledge and skills in subsection (b) of this section comprise the first part of a twoyear study of U.S. history. The second part, comprising U.S. history from Reconstruction to the present, is provided in of this title (relating to United States History Studies Since 1877 (One Credit), Beginning with School Year ). The content in Grade 8 builds upon that from Grade 5 but provides more depth and breadth. Historical content focuses on the political, economic, religious, and social events and issues related to the colonial and revolutionary eras, the creation and ratification of the U.S. Constitution, challenges of the early republic, the Age of Jackson, westward expansion, sectionalism, Civil War, and Reconstruction. Students describe the physical characteristics of the United States and their impact on population distribution and settlement patterns in the past and present. Students analyze the various economic factors that influenced the development of colonial America and the early years of the republic and identify the origins of the free enterprise system. Students examine the American beliefs and principles, including limited government, checks and balances, federalism, separation of powers, and individual rights, reflected in the U.S. Constitution and other historical documents.

Motivating resources are available from museums, historical sites, presidential libraries, and local and state preservation societies. Introduction (3) The eight strands of the essential knowledge and skills for social studies are intended to be integrated for instructional purposes. Skills listed in the social studies skills strand in subsection (b) of this section should be incorporated into the teaching of all essential knowledge and skills for social studies. A greater depth of understanding of complex content material can be attained when integrated social studies content from the various disciplines and critical-thinking skills are taught together. Statements that contain the word "including" reference content that must be mastered, while those containing the phrase "such as" are intended as possible illustrative examples. (4) Students identify the role of the U.S. free enterprise system within the parameters of this course and understand that this system may also be referenced as capitalism or the free market system. (5) Throughout social studies in Kindergarten-Grade 12, students build a foundation in history; geography; economics; government; citizenship; culture; science, technology, and society; and social studies skills. The content, as appropriate for the grade level or course, enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation as referenced in the Texas Education Code (TEC), (h). (6) Students understand that a constitutional republic is a representative form of government whose representatives derive their authority from the consent of the governed, serve for an established tenure, and are sworn to uphold the constitution.
