Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

What Does it Mean to Go Over a Test

Going over the reading test. It's OK, especially in the beginning

If you got an answer wrong, the bad thing isn't that you got it wrong, but that you don't know why.

Ask yourself, or REFLECT, did you:

1. misinterpret the question
2. guess at the answer (which is not thinking, and not thinking is not allowed
3. poor RESEARCH/REFERENCE skill development

Who should grade the test? The teacher always? Why? Is the studnet incapable of learnign how to research and find the answers themselves and EVALUATE their own work, telling themselves IF they got the corr3ect answer or not?

We have one student say the question out loud
2. give time for EACH student to find the answer in the book (if they can't - that's where the problem is)
3. ID what skill the question is asking for
