This Unit in World History (February 20 - February 28)
The second assessment is the benchmark test. If students review their notes, they will do well on their test. Remember, these tests reflect the content in the SOLs, so please encourage your students to review for them. If you have any questions, please come in and talk with me. My contact information is also below.
I will do my part to help students do well on their tests. While many teachers will teach to the test, I mix higher order thinking with lecture. According to research by Royal Van Horn, the students who write a lot do much better on the tests (1997). Using his advice, I will improve students' scores.
