You have been and will continue to be working on every single skill tested on the FCAT reading test all year. In fact, you have been working on FCAT reading skills in every class you have taken since you have learned to read! Even when you are not directly talking about FCAT, if you are working hard in classes you are being prepared!
April 16th –
That is soon!
For example, let’s say your comprehension level was very HIGH in elementary school and your achievement level was a 4 or 5.
150 students losing an elective period because they have to take intensive classes = 1 lost “fun” elective class for the school!
Your goal is to stare that test into submission!
The good thing about FCAT is that it is not a memory test, it is a skill test, so there is nothing really to study and remember, it is all about applying yourself in that moment. That SHOULD lessen your anxiety!
Time to do the heavy lifting! Actively READ! Check for focus and understanding by highlighting key things as you read, and periodically writing a few words in a note.
Don’t get lazy now! Stop and think about one paragraph before moving on to the next one. You are monitoring your understanding and you will remember more of what you read!
REREADING paragraphs and even the whole passage will help you increase your score.
Be sure to stay ACTIVE when reading the questions! Students often answer questions incorrectly because they didn’t read the question carefully!
