I've attended various training sessions, workshops, and conferences throughout Alabama regarding the ACAP Summative Assessment. Based on information gained from the trainings and my own educational experience, I created a series of practice prompts to prepare 4th - 8th grade students for the writing portion of the ACAP Summative Assessment.
I have 8 years of secondary classroom teaching experience. I believe all students deserve to learn in a challenging educational environment that provokes them to think deeply, reflect often, and formulate original ideas. I tend to focus on writing instruction, as I believe open ended questioning helps adolescent students develop critical thinking and extended reasoning.
