Lessons directly support the New York State Core Curriculum
Guided practice for skill mastery
Pretests and posttest that align with the New York state tests
Reviewed by New York teachers
The Review, Practice, & Mastery program follows a sound and consistent instructional design that benefits both students and teacher.
Students take a comprehensive pretest that mirrors the New York state tests and chart their results on the reproducible skills chart in the teacher guide. Instruction can then focus on specific lessons containing the strategies and practice the students need.
All of the skills in the New York Learning Standards and Core Curriculum are thoroughly reviewed with step-by-step instruction. Model questions are in the format of the New York state tests. In addition, test-taking strategies are embedded in every lesson to help students become testwise.
Every lesson concludes with a timed practice test that covers the skills and test-taking strategies reviewed in that lesson. Just as on the pretest and posttest, the item types match those on the New York state tests.
A timed comprehensive mastery test at the end of the book shows the growth students have made from the pretest to the posttest. A reproducible bubble answer sheet is provided in the teacher guide so students can experience an authentic testing environment.
