I'm a realist. Without a doubt, I have private thoughts about this high-stakes testing world we live in; however, I know why we do it. Parents, educators, and politicians need a measure of student achievement. Yeah, yeah, yeah - I get it. So, even though I have those very private thoughts and feelings about testing our children (and testing, and testing, and testing . . . ), I'm going to do everything in my power to ensure my students are prepared for the most important test of their educational careers - the ACT.
Here are some test taking tips. Please, take the time to read up and rest up. Testing is coming.
For this week's challenge, respond with your best test-taking tips. If you feel like it, set a couple goals on our blog. I've found goal-setting students to be my most successful.
