9781478749882: Jerry Versus the Test

Will the Test Rattle Jerry? Jerry is a regular kid who likes school. But one day things change, and Jerry must face . . . the test! Follow Jerry and friends through the twists, turns, difficulties and challenges of school and test prep. Will Jerry conquer this challenge? Who will help Jerry through?       Overview Jerry Versus the Test is about a child struggling for the first time with the impact of standardized testing plus the stresses and anxieties it instills in children. Jerry enjoys school until the third grade when students are suddenly faced with standardized testing. Everything changes. Jerry fears failure; interesting lessons have given way to relentless test prep; school has become a testing lab. The story takes Jerry through the experience and its difficulties, closing with a positive slant in which Jerry realizes the test does not define who you are as a student.

He is a proud alumnus of Rutgers University (go RU!), receiving a Masters in Education at the College of Staten Island.
