Social Studies are an important aspect of the secondary education curriculum in the United States. The term “Social Studies” as used in high schools across the nation is a broad term that includes Civics and Government, Economics, Geography, and United States History. The GED Social Studies Test comprises 50 questions covering all of these subjects, including multiple choice questions, fill-in-the-blank, and more. Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools provide you with a unique GED Social Studies Test preparation experience. Learn by Concept is one of the effective tools included in the free GED Social Studies study material. As the name implies, this valuable tool allows you to really drill down on the specific Social Studies concepts that may need more study time.
The Learn by Concept tool takes the topics addressed in the actual GED Social Studies Test and puts them into an interactive syllabus for your use. You can choose to focus on either general or specific study material. For instance, you can click on Social Studies and access very broad Social Studies study help, or you can find much more specific study material on the subtopic regarding The Constitution.
The Learn by Concept tool is designed to provide you with a comprehensive learning experience. The tool comprises Social Studies example questions in multiple choice format with three or four choices. These examples include text analysis questions and visual representation questions in order to simulate the actual GED Social Studies Test. You can view the correct answer and a detailed explanation after answering each question. The visual representation sample questions include sample cartoons, tables, graphs, and charts for analysis practice. The text analysis sample questions represent the portion of the GED Social Studies Test that requires analysis of sample passage content and the ability to make connections in the Social Studies study material.
With the Learn by Concept tool, you are able to quickly assess areas of weakness and strength for an efficient and effective Social Studies Test review. You can also return to the tool to find that the multiple choice answers have been shuffled and randomly switched, which is another valuable aspect of the tool, helping you to avoid rote memorization of information and providing a more challenging learning experience.
