Post: Preparing for Testing
Posted by fox on 1/23/03
Just wondering if everyone is as stressed as I am about the
TEST! I teach 5th grade and am absolutely killing myself
trying to get all the core content in before the testing
window. I feel like I can't do a good job teaching
because I have to cram so much into every day. We can't
spend adequate time on any concept-just when the kids are
really enjoying a topic, I have to move on to the next
one. I wish we didn't have the test looming over our heads
everyday. The children are feeling the stress just as much
as I am. I feel like I am preparing my kids to take a test
instead of giving them a well-rounded education.
