9781578865734: Teaching Test-Taking Skills: Proven Techniques to Boost Your Student's Scores

The No Child Left Behind Act has standardized the proficiency requirements of students, thus challenging schools to teach, test, and be accountable for student mastery of the curriculum. Students no longer have the luxury of time to learn the mechanics of taking tests. As early as third grade, they not only must have acquired the knowledge of the material, they also have to perform on the tests that measure that knowledge. Dr. Guinevere Durham has spent 25 years researching, writing, and implementing a program that teaches test-taking skills to students. Teaching Test-Taking Skills is filled with strategies, techniques, and activities that have been proven successful in the classroom. It is practical, user-friendly, cost effective, and compatible with any curriculum. The test scores of students taught these skills are a true assessment of their potential.

About the Author:

Dr. Guinevere Durham is a retired elementary principal with education and experiences as an elementary teacher, preschool director, mother, and grandmother.

Review:

A very well thought-out, thorough, and practical format that applies an age-old experience to the challenges of a changing world....[Teaching Test-Taking Skills] helps to create a brighter future to help students, teachers, and parents to see testing as a relevant activity in the academe, where change is both expected and admired. (Sister John Christian McCabe O.P., Academia San Jose High School, Puerto Rico)

In today's world of high-stakes testing, this book offers practical advice for classroom teachers on how to get their students ready to be successful test takers. It is a welcome resource because it is written by a classroom teacher who has been successful using the methods and who knows what works for teachers as well as students. (Kendra Peebles, teacher, Harbor City Elementary School, Melbourne, Florida)

Student's will develop confidence in the test-taking experience with the use of the practical exercises outlined in this book. [Dr. Durham] touches on areas that need to be addressed in all subject areas and stresses the importance of support from teachers and parents. If my students were exposed to the methods in this book in elementary and middle school, then I wouldn't see the look of fear on their faces when I say, 'This is a test.' (Lynn S. Lilley, secondary math teacher, Winston-Salem, North Carolina)
