This unit guides students through the process of analyzing a standardized test, getting to know different types of common questions, and planning powerful strategies for success.
In the question sorting activities, students review previously taught skills and learn to recognize those skills in the test format. In the first sort, students analyze questions testing summary, main idea, and author's purpose. In the second sort, students notice the difference between "giving proof" questions, inferring questions, and word meaning questions. The students will also practice answering "not" and "except" questions.
You'll also teach and practice reading test strategies using the SMART acronym. Resources included to help your students become confident and prepared test-takers!
Testing is stressful for both kids and teachers! The hands-on and interactive activities allow students to explore and analyze reading tests from a unique perspective. No boring reading passages here!
The lessons are easily adaptable to work with any state's test. You will simply need to find a sample of a release test from your state and grade-level for students to analyze.
NOTE: This product DOES NOT include an actual test passage. The questions are written to represent the types of questions students will see, not to actually be answered.
I hope you found just what you needed!
