PROVIDING AN AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE FOR STANDARDIZED TEST PREP USING NON FICTION CLASSROOM TEXTS
We all teach students to analyze, synthesize, and construct an argument.
Here, you can use your classroom text, but format your essay in a way that more closely mimics the actual look and wording of the SAT in order to increase transfer, particularly for struggling students.
You can use the SAT rubric found on the SAT website, or you can use your personal writing rubrics and revise them to assess the concepts that the SAT is looking for.
For struggling writers, scaffolding the writing process first is necessary.
