The time of year has arrived: It is officially testing season. I feel that my Junior English students have been very fortunate this year. We have had Chromebooks since October 2014. My four classes have worked on papers, Google Classroom, Google Docs and Slides, as well as with a plethora of Web 2.0 tools. Will this make a difference?
Climbing the SBAC Mountain, as I've termed it, is a daunting task for these first time Common Core State Standard test takers. We will be fully immersed in test-taking for the next week. We've done the work, students are better prepared than they have been in prior years. I hope they go for the highest peak of SBAC mountain and conquer it!
