ARMT Practice-1st round
Today was our 1st round of REALLY practicing for the ARMT/sAT 10. Whew-it was exhausting! 🙂 As usual, I overplanned so we didn’t get to everything-I’m going to have to look at all of my resources again and only pull the ones that focus on the strategies/skills that I know my kids are still unsure of. Some of these are main idea and details/theme(oh, boy)/generalizations. Also, open ended responses are STILL causing a problem-I think they just want to put anything down on paper, and they don’t see the importance of putting forth the effort to “explain” their answer with evidence/details. I think we will start practicing this a lot!!! They ALL should really be doing well on this since it has been taught and graded since August-but….. 🙂
I’ll post again in a few days to see if any progress has been made with what we are doing.
