How exactly do I prepare my students for the EOG?. Teach the Common Core State Standards for Reading!. Follow the Steps!. Step 1: Analyze the Test Yourself. At your table read and answer the questions to the first two passages in your EOG released items.
Now it’s time to practice with sample tests!
We cannot just give students questions and expect them to develop critical thinking. We must MODEL expected thinking and then provide multiple opportunities for guided and independent practice.
~Lucy Calkins in A Teacher’s Guide to Standardized Reading Test
“Show me students who can write (answers), and I’ll show you students who can pick (answers).”
Sticking with it, even when your body and brain get tired!
