I'm so tired of "teaching to the test!" What do I do? I want to quit!
Teach to the test?! You should be teaching critical thinking and problem solving skills first!
No! I have to make sure that my students pass the test! They all have to be great test takers!
Life advice for you, friend:If you allow your students to master content through UDL, choice, and engagement, they'll naturally do better on the test.
And then you just have to teach test taking skills as an individual unit at the end of the year! Works like a charm.
It worked. My students are so engaged with their tests. Who knew they'd get a deeper understanding if I let them choose their own projects, and paired that directly with teaching test taking skills? I got this!
