Motivation and Students

Important Questions to Consider
Do you know your student's instructional level? (If s/he were motivated to show it) Are you able to identify this student's learning preferences (hands-on, video, etc.) and learning style (auditory, visual, global, inductive, etc) so that you can teach to his/her strengths? If not, what will you do to seek out this information? Individualizing materials for different levels of ability?

Reducing Test Anxiety

Please look at the link below and reflect on how you will help students relax and do their best on the EOG's. Reach out for help prior to Friday if you have students with extreme anxiety.
