================================================
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 whipping the State
while teaching an average of 110 students per 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.

And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.

I've done this in a
High-Poverty, Title 1 school
in the Appalachian Mtns.
with:
No Teaching Assistants,
No Tutors,
No Remediation Class,
and
No Test-Prep books or programs.

So what are my kids doing???

Bossy Brocci worksheets
================================================
Note:
in the Cause and Effect GRAPHS Lessons,
you will have finally found the elusive antidote
to the kid (usually a boy) who flies through everything.
You know the type:
the kid who half-a$$es his way through your quizzes, tests,
and even breathing - just to get ‘em done.
This is the kid who – after he’s just raced through yet another assignment,
and then been punished for that early & care-less finish
with instructions to go read 57 pages in his textbook –
miraculously returns to your desk six minutes later
- - - proclaiming he’s finished that too.
You know who I’m talking about.
Don’t deny it.
He’s the reason you've been longing for a Housecall - - -
from Dr. Kevorkian.

Well . . .
don't pick up that phone (or Ouija board) just yet,
because the apathetic juggernaut “Little Jimmy” just met his match.
Little Jimmy and the rest of your students will have to translate a graphed relationship between two variables, and then write about that relationship by choosing to use: ‘increase’ ‘increases’ ‘raises’ ‘higher’ ‘decrease’ ‘decreases’ ‘drops’ ‘lowers’ ‘lower’ etc. in 6 complete sentences!
If you’re worried Little Jimmy can write these sentences any which way he can just to get it over with - - -
well . . . he CAN’T.
Little Jimmy won’t have it “finished” until he follows the rules
- - - MY rules.
And that’s because I’ve already prescribed a template for how each and every sentence is to be worded and written – right down to the very order & grammar for every sentence.
That means even apathetic Little Jimmy’s wrong answers must be correctly written before he can turn ‘em in.
And until he does that???
- - - Little Jimmy won’t be “done” with squat.
