This is an excerpt from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science workbooks! [it's pronounced like "Brawsee"]
I allow my students to use my worksheets on all quizzes and Tests.
Why such a huge 'crutch'?
I want them to read and re-read factually-dense material
as many times as possible prior to taking that "Big" no-notes
standardized test. Does it work? Well, consider this:
Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100
State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to
90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been handily beating the
State while teaching an average of 110 students every year - and
with only about 38 minutes for science class! It's a matter of public
record: I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average
of 23 points over a 5-year stretch. All this - and with No Teaching
Assistants, No Tutors, No Remediation Class - and No Test-Prep
THAT is what I less-than-humbly call 'Teacher Effectiveness.'
So what are my kids learning, doing and using?
