AEPA: Civil Rights Chapter Objectives

The AEPA: Civil Rights chapter is designed to help you strengthen your knowledge of the subject to ensure you can answer related questions on the NES Middle Grades Social Science assessment. This can get you much closer to passing the exam so that you can successfully attach this middle grades approved area to your Arizona teaching certificate. This chapter can help you address topics in the history and government portions of the exam, which constitute approximately 50% and 19% of the total test, respectively. Use the video lessons to brush up on your knowledge of civil rights then reinforce that knowledge with the chapter exam. Ask instructors any questions you have about the lessons.

This assessment is computer based and is composed of all multiple-choice questions. The questions are based on specific test competencies designed to ensure you fully comprehend social science as you prepare to teach it in the classroom. Each question is followed by a set of four answers. You will be asked to select one of the four as the best response to the question posed.
