PPT from ELA training seminar ↓
1. Writing on this test is INTEGRATED, not prompted. More small writing vs. a few lengthy ones.
2. When writing, students should use the academic terms to answer. This can help them get the 2nd point on the 2 point questions.
* Make a list of words they should use as a bulletin board and expect them to use them on your homework.
3. Quality vs. Quantity
4. Literacy standards in content areas matter!
