"Arming your students with this game plan will lead to victory on test day. These well-defined writing and reading strategies will positively impact students' scores." -- Cheryl Yocum, English Language Arts Consultant
"This book provides teachers with specific units for intentionally developing students' ability to show what they know rather than show that they know how to take tests. It provides tools and information that make it easy for teachers to develop units based on their own state tests. By employing the strategies in this book, teachers will level the playing field for all our students and make high-stakes test taking a game of knowledge rather than a game of chance." -- Mary McConnell, School Improvement Facilitator
"Every teacher must read this book and teach these strategies immediately. I am seeing awesome results in my students' test scores, and they want more strategies. Learning is making sense to them! This book has changed my teaching." -- Maria Hirsch, Language Arts Teacher
