This not a test-prep book. It is not about "drill and kill" practices that narrow learning so that students will pass an exam. Instead, authors Maureen Connolly and Vicky Giouroukakis present a lesson planning approach for the secondary classroom that generates test success as a byproduct of comprehensive literacy learning.
Frequent, low-stakes quizzes provide timely feedback on student learning and take some of the hype and hysteria out of weightier assessments. Learn four must-haves for applying this approach in your classroom, and gather fodder for the types of questions to ask.
