PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reduce anxiety, build confidence, and inspire students to achieve! Brain-based strategies for ANY students, ANY grade, ANY test!

Test anxiety is a common ailment faced by many students, especially before high-stakes tests like the ACT and PARCC. Help your students overcome their fears, build confidence, and feel at ease the day before the "Big Test" with this Power Point-outlined lesson. Includes:

•Do's and Don'ts

•Student-friendly science on the importance of nutrition, hydration, rest, and exercise

•Guided Mediation/"Visualizing Success" exercise (similar to techniques used by sports psychologists with athletes before a big game)

•Links to ideas for increasing energy through dance and relieving anxiety through humor

•Step-by-step directions for simple yoga poses that reduce anxiety and build focus and confidence; these poses can be done easily in a classroom and require no special equipment

•Reminders and tips about test-taking strategies

My students LOVE our "Standardized Test Pre-Party" day in class! You have taught them everything they need to know; they have worked hard and are prepared. Now it's time to get your students in a positive mental state before the test.

Zip folder includes a presentation specifically related to the English, Reading, and Writing ACT tests, as well as a more general presentation that is applicable to other state-mandated/high stakes tests.
