It’s that time of year again. Test season. Although it seems crazy to continue with testing despite the inconsistent year everyone has had, the show must go on right? This time of year is an important opportunity to fill in the gaps and squeeze in some extra practice. Let’s take a look at how we can best prepare your students while having a little fun too!
My number one piece of advice is to avoid overusing traditional test prep, which involves individually reading long passages and answering many questions in one sitting. These test prep strategies I share today include tips that you can use all throughout the school year. This episode is all about helping you and your students feel confident for the test. You’ve got this!
In this episode I share:
- How to break up test prep to avoid student burn out
- My belief of effort over a high test score
- 7 engaging test prep strategies that will accommodate all learning styles
- Why you should be incorporating peer collaboration into prep
