Reflection: Unit Exams Testing Strategy: Planning a Written Response - Section 1: Pre-writing Plan


Each school year students take a wide variety of tests, many of which include a written response to literature. For some of these tests the stakes are quite high, especially those mandated by states. Most teachers are against ‘teaching to the test’ and devoting large amounts of class time to test preparation. At the same, it is important to note that the strategies necessary to do well on these tests are employed by good readers and writers in all content areas. Practicing these strategies will benefit students in multiple ways.
