All Standards are possible on ODE Test Released Assessments

6.L.1b Use intensive pronouns (e.g. myself, ourselves).

Tuesday's are going to be Test Question Tuesday. We are using Google Classroom with EdCite for students to look at released test questions and passages. All standards are a possibility to be addressed on the assessment. We want students to see the complexity of the passages/excerpts as well as the DOK of questions. We are going to be reading closely together, and modeling best answer choices. We are wanting students to be prepared and not feel overwhelmed by the what they are going to be required to do on testing days.
