Do you have a state mandated reading comprehension test for your course? At this point you have done everything you can do to increase their ability to read, now it is time to supercharge their test taking ability!
There is no charge for this activity, just download it from the Extreme English Teacher Teachers-Pay-Teachers store. If you like it, I would appreciate a positive review. Those really do help!
Standardized reading tests are a joke, if you ask me. We are requiring students to spend an hour and a half to two hours focusing on boring reading passages. What this activity does well is to give students the ability to focus a little longer to get another passage in before their brain fries from your oh-so-wonderful state test. The methods in there were honed in my classroom and I consistently had my non-motivated non-readers score higher than expected on the NC English II EOC and the NCFE for English IV (my scores were in the blue repeatedly, if you are a fellow NC teacher and knows what that means). The method works!
If you used it, let me know in the comments and again - positive reviews on Teachers-Pay-Teachers is ALWAYS APPRECIATED!
