Today you will read a practice EOG selection independently. Doing something independently means you use the same strategies you used with the teacher, but without the teacher there to tell you to use the strategies. In this case, your test strategies are UNRAAVEL. Use them for this practice as well as the EOG. The only difference is that on the day of the EOG test, your teacher cannot tell you what to do or how to take the test or to “use your UNRAAVEL strategies. JUST DO THEM WITHOUT BEING TOLD…that’s what independent means…knowing what to do on your own without being told!!! You can do it, I believe in you!
Read the practice selection The Biscuit Tradition, use your whiteboard pen to “mark up” your “test booklet”…and use a piece of scratch paper to take notes, write down important ideas, key vocabulary and your thinking. Even create a T-chart if that’s a reading strategy that helps you. Then, follow the link below to answer to questions. Refer back to the passage for “proof”.
Do your best and take your time! You are all excellent readers but when you go fast, you’d don’t prove your excellence, you just show your hasty and careless…and we don’t want that to be a reflection of you because you’re better than that!
