Tomorrow--Another Day, Another Test
Tomorrow all juniors in our school will take the SAT. I suppose that this has something to do with getting our students "college and career ready," the new mantra of education gurus.  Pretty much the way all teachers feel these days I am expecting that some...

Giving Benchmarks
Today I gave the school district "benchmark" tests in English III. These are designed to find out how much the students have learned so far this year. Good luck with that. Students dislike taking these tests as much as I dislike giving them. The first thing...

Our Reading Club
I have tried to have a reading club at the high school for several years now.  A big part of the problem is finding the time for the club and getting the interest of the students. At first, we had a fairly large club going with around 20-25 showing up once ...

What Happened When Our Juniors Were Required to Take the SAT on Wednesday
Actually, this was not exactly high-stakes, but the attitude the kids had towards it was about the same. On Wednesday, all juniors in the Oklahoma City Public School district were required to take the SAT exam.  This is the brainchild of someone brought int...

Bubble-in Test Week
Tomorrow we will begin the district benchmark tests, which will take about 3 classes to complete. I have never found these tests to yield much in the way of useful data because many of the students do not take them seriously.   We keep doing the same thing ...
