This is a compilation of 24 strategies that I have found to work excellently for kids taking the state reading test. They are broken down into "Before Test, Before Reading, During Reading, Answering Questions, and After Completing Test" categories.
This started with a class discussion. I asked the students in 5 classes what strategies they used to take the state test. At the end of the day, I compiled this list of their suggestions and added a few of my own. I also got a few suggestions from our reading specialist.
Many teachers have borrowed this from me and have had great success.
