Today's advisory lesson has two parts. Sarah has provided the testing schedule and a few notes she'd like to get out to the kids since state testing starts tomorrow. Please take just a few minutes at the beginning of advisory to make sure the kiddos know what day/days they'll be testing and where to report. As in the past, I'll be making announcements at the beginning of each day to remind kids of our schedule for the day. After you spend a bit of time reviewing the testing schedule with the kids, please go through the GoogleDoc lesson that is below. You'll need to make sure to have it in slideshow mode for the links to work properly.
Part 1--Testing (link to student copy of testing schedule is below...Please display it while you review the following...)
Explain the breakdown of how to locate the following on the schedule using the first few days of testing:
The date (at top of each testing day)
The subject(s) testing
The Block/Teacher/Class/Room, with an example such as "Graves' 2nd block will be testing in Room 402."
Look at how the schedule is listed, noting the blocks with ** denotes the "testing block."
Make sure and look at 11/29 since that is an example of a day when we are on a regular schedule, but testing "within the blocks."
