Writing Test Preparation
The best writing test preparation in seventh grade is simply encouraging your student to write, raising awareness of the written word, and offering guidance on writing homework. Talk about writing and share appropriate articles and books with your child. Students learn to write effectively when they write more often. Suggest keeping a journal, writing movie reviews for the family, or writing the procedures for using a new piece of equipment, etc. Any writing is valuable practice. By becoming familiar with 7th grade writing standards, parents can offer more constructive homework support. Remember, the best writing help for kids is not to correct their essays, but offer positive feedback that prompts them use the strategies of writing process to revise their own work.
The Commonwealth of Kentucky has released the schools’ performance results for the 2016-2017 school year. The Commonwealth’s system for reporting the testing results has changed and is still changing. This poses a challenge in our efforts to provide an overall and simplified method to communicate the progress to the community and parents. Each school and School Based Decision Making council (SBDM) will continue to analyze their individual results to build on strengths while addressing priority concerns. Each SBDM council continues to meet with the school board to provide updates and progress towards meeting their goals.
