    Mini Lesson: Students will take a MEAP practice test.
    Scaffolding Decisions
     

    Connection: Over the last nine days, you have been introduced to strategies to help you be successful on the MEAP test.  Today, you and a partner will take a practice test to prove to yourself just how ready you are for the MEAP test. 

    Teaching Point: Remember to focus on the strategies we have gone over.  Refer to the classroom chart.  Good test takers use coping skills when they feel overwhelmed.  Don"t stress out.  You have worked hard for this challenge.   
     
    After the test, go through each section together asking
    • how individual students arrived at their decisions
    • what coping skills were used when/if they got stuck 
    Active Engagement:
    Pass out practice tests. 
    Students will complete the practice test. 
    Hold a classroom discussion about the  practice test.
