What to do when you have taught all you can and your students will not use the skills you have taught to do well on the test.

Two weeks ago 5th grade took a mock test and let’s say they did not perform as I would have hoped. However, when I review with the students, I discovered they are not using strategies. So I realized they understand the concepts but just will not use the strategies to help themselves on the test.

So I have a call to action…. What are some strategies you use to help prep for state assessments?

Reading is what I teach but I have found some great strategies for other subject areas. Please share —any insights, words of encouragement, any helpful tips would be appreciate it.success pexels-photo
