I was very pleased with the product. It came in a short period of time and it was in excellent condition.

Revolutionary thinking on standardized testing!

The authors provide a fresh and revolutionary approach to the mandatory standardized testing that educators are faced with today. They offer a simple change in thinking about standardized testing as a genre of literature that students need to become familiar with by learning the types of language, clues, and format that are used. Along with this perspective, they provide a thorough description of each type of lesson to be presented to students in a fun and engaging manner with suggestions for follow-up and for those students who are not successful with mastering the strategies. These lessons are based in the cooperative learning model and also include suggestions for literature to use. I have spoken to several other teachers in my district and this book is spreading like wildfire! An absolute must read!

Test Talk

Test Talk: Integrating Test Preparation into Reading Workshop We have used this book at our school to discuss testing vocabulary. Each teacher has a set of words to work on with students. We are hoping that the suggestions in this book will help improve our instructional delivery. The book offers a lot of practical advice that educators can use. I highly recommend this book.

Test Talk

The information in this book was very helpful. I was able to teach the testing strategies to my students before they took a Reading benchmark exam. They found the strategies helped them on the test. I definately recommend this book.

A Book You Can Use Immediately

This book addresses the challenges teachers face in preparing their students for standardized tests without giving up good teaching. Amy H Greene and Glennon Doyle Melton have written a book that teachers can read quickly and use right away. They have included not only the theory but examples of lessons from real classrooms and lesson plans to use. I will be referring to this book frequently in the coming school year.
