Ahoy there Mateys! Avast all ye pirates who are about to start standardized testing mayhem! Landlubbers and pirates alike will enjoy learning about the P.I.R.A.T.E.S. way of taking standardized tests!
Use this Power Point lesson to get your students onboard for standardized testing by learning the PIRATES strategies for test-taking. Use the slideshow to discuss reading and answering test questions and then apply strategies to play an interactive learning game - Buccaneer Battle. Students will answer 24 true/false questions about testing to collect doubloons for their team. As questions are answered, spend time discussing how this will help your students do well on the test. Your crew will be set to sail through testing on calm seas once they learn these tips.
Examples of True/False Questions:

8. T/F Always answer a question, even if you have to skip it and go back later to make an educated guess.
9. T/F You should select the first answer that you see is right. Don’t worry about reading the other answers.
10. T/F Look for clues such as “always” or “never” to determine the correct answer.
