It's the end of the year, and time for my annual reflection on what did and didn't work this year. One thing that didn't work - preparing my students for tests and quizzes. For the past couple of years, I would play a review game with my classes the day before a chapter test (i.e. Jeopardy). But I found that the students were more interested in the game, rather than the review. So, this year I gave study guides for my students to fill out. The day before the test, the students would use their notes to answer the study guide questions (which were VERY similar to the test questions). At the end of class, I would go over the correct answers so I knew they were studying the correct information. However, many students complete the study guide just because I make them do it in class, and they never study it! And of course, they promptly fail the test. Even after I show them that the study guide was EXACTLY like the test, they still don't make the connection. I'm at my wits end. It's too late to change anything this school year, but does anyone have suggestions as to how to get my students to be prepared for tests? P.S. - I'm dealing mostly 10th grade general ed and IEP students. Little parent involvement, too.
