Time for State Assessments

Dear students, parents, and teachers,

Best wishes to all who are taking the state assessments in the next few weeks. 

Here are a few documents to help you review how to write a persuasive essay:










And here are a few tips on getting ready for the tests:

1- Get a good night's sleep.

2- Have a protein-rich, nutritious breakfast. For example:
-one egg (hard-boiled or scrambled) or a couple of slices of ham or turkey
-one slice of whole-wheat toast 
-low-sugar cereal
-low-fat milk
-a small serving of fruit or fruit juice

3- Wear comfortable clothes.

4- If possible, don't sit next to students who could distract you.

5- Take a few relaxing deep breaths before the test.

6- Pace yourself: don't rush, but don't spend too much time on any section.

7- Apply what you've learned. 

8- For the writing section: Follow the writing process, but don't spend too much time planning (15 minutes should be enough). Allow enough time to revise.

9- For the reading section: Skim the questions before reading the selection.

10- For multiple-choice questions: Answer the ones you're sure of first. Then go back and tackle the troublesome ones. Don't make wild guesses; use the process of elimination and narrow down your choices.

I'll post again after Spring Break. Enjoy your vacation -- I know I will! :)
