,Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, April 6, 2017 :Social Studies One of the four subject tests that must be passed to -earn a GED credential is "the Social" Studies Test. ~The GED Social Studies ~Test is a 70-minute test that ;focuses on the fundamen- ;tals of social studies rea- 7soning, striking a balance ~f deeper conceptual Tunderstanding, procedural :skill and "fluency, and the ~ability to these fun- apply damentals in realistic situa- ;tions. The test will also ;focus on four major con- ,tent domains: 1. Civics and govern- ment 2. United States history 3. Economics 4. Geography and the world The social studies con- lent topics, which are drawn from these four domains, provide context for measuring a test-taker's ability to apply the reason- ing skills described in the practices. The content top- ics focus on key concepts that reflect both that which is taught in many high school-level social sci- ences courses and that which is most relevant and useful for an adult popula- tion. To measure this content at a range of levels of com- plexity, several different item types are used in the test, including multiple choice, drag-and-drop, hot spot, and fill-in-therblank. Approximately 50% of the test focuses on civics and government, 20% focuses on United States history, 15% focuses on economics, and 15% focuses on geography and the world. The test includes items that assess textual analysis and understand- ing, data representation and inference skills, and problem solving using social studies content. Problem solving skills are measured in both academic and workplace contexts. Are you wondering if you might be able tO pass the computer-based GED Test?

Jones 762-7963 I needed to stop and pray Well, this story Was handed down to me from my mother and it happened about 100 years ago. There .was a little church in the community in the lower end of Russell County known as the Baker Ridge 'Church. Since then, that church has been complete- ly remodeled at least twice 'and is Still in existence and ~s pastored now by the Reverend Elwood Hall. Four or five miles down in the valley was a little settlement known as Dickens's Holler. There was a revival going on at the church and a lot of the young folks in that area decided to walk to the revival. They were accom- panied by an old gentleman whose name was Uncle Tom Dingus. He had four children that was in that bunch: Henry, Filen, Albie, and Vernon. Well. after ,church was over that night. ~Ihey were all walking :home. Some was talking, ~ome was singing and just enjoying themselves. iWhen they finally got :.. ,;?z .,: :" cRv : Stadlunl Theatres : i Movie Hotline'For Showtimes i 276-679-4252 Check Showtimes ONne :CENTRAL: ,- DRIVE- IN !e ~lack~voc, c~ VA 276"679-376t '~ ADUL1q~: $8 CHILDREN: $4 : eo eeeoeo lel er, l~ o e I De down into the holler a good ways from the church, they stopped at a spring to get a drink of water and they heard Somebody that sounded like they were very much in distress. Henry said, "Listen! Listen! Lord, that's Dad. Something has happened to him." They all ran all the way back to the top of the mountain which was about a mile or so away. They found the problem. The old man was knelt down by a log and he was praying. His son grabbed him and said, "Dad! Dad! What is wrong?" He said, "Aw, son, there's not anything wrong. I just felt like I needed to stop and pray for the revival." Their love turned to anger and he said, "Well, if that don't beat the devil. You have scared everyone of us to death and you should have prayed while you was at the church." He said, "I did and the further I went I just decid- ed that I wanted to talk to the Lord some more." My Mom and all of her brothers and sisters and lots of friends were in that crowd walking home from church. Morn was then just a young lady and if she had lived, she would now be 115 years old. They said Uncle Tom lived to be in his 90's. I remember in the early 50's the day he was laid to rest. I'm sure the preacher that conducted his funeral had no problem. Well, we don't have that problem any more, if you can call that a problem. You don't hear people on the mountain tops, the hills, down the fence rows and even the corn fields crying out to the Lord any- more. But I'm a firm believer that if we could roll time back to those days that this country would be a much better place to live. But the Bible said, "If my people which are called by my name will humble themselves and seek my face then I will hear from Heaven and will heal their land." I think that we can bring those days back because there is no law that says where or when or how loud you can pray.
