Upcoming NeSA State Writing Test

January 22, 2014

The students in English II CT and English III CT have been working hard to prepare for the state writing test, the NeSa-W.  Mrs. Benson's students are taking the test on Wednesday, January 29, 2014 and are trying something new this year by testing with familiar teachers and in classrooms where they feel comfortable.  Research has shown that this will help students to do better on the test.  The kids have written one practice essay in which they had to choose what age they felt was best for students to be able to drop out of high school and defend their decision.  This week the students will be using a practice prompt from the state and practicing on the state test software.  Hopefully all their hard work and preparation will pay off in the end!
