You'd rather do anything but "teach to the test."
After all, who wants to use valuable class time on something students are going to do their best to forget an hour after the test is over?
That's why Preparation for State Reading Assessments focuses on reading skills that are useful in any setting — a standardized test just happens to be one of them.
Each book gives students 35 grade-appropriate nonfiction passages to read, and questions for each.
And here's where the test prep component comes in: the questions are modeled after those used on the FCAT 2.0, STAR/CAHSEE, ACT, and ITBS exams.
With books ranging from 4th through 12th grade, there's something in this series for primary- and secondary-school English/Language Arts students alike.
