Students will be taking the CRCT soon. While I don't talk about testing much, it will be important for students to get a feel for the testing format. I will be sending home practice test questions in all academic areas everyday. Please encourage your child to complete the assignment each night. As a class we will review the answers and discuss helpful strategies the following day. I don't want to cause stress about the test, but I also want my students to have every opportunity to feel comfortable with the format of the test and to have tools and strategies for success.
