I teach an after school tutoring group for our "cusp" kids on testing skills. The kids have FINALLY started going back in the passage to get the answers at a pretty successful level. The problem is they are reading the passage line by line until they find it. Obviously this is going to exhaust them quickly and most of them don't read fast enough to make it through the state test at that pace. I was trying to explain how to skim/scan today and I felt like I wasn't doing a very good job. We have talked about reading the questions first and underlining where you see that information when you are reading, but I honestly don't think this is something they understand without my help. They're too busy trying to understand the passage to think about what they read in a question or realize the information is there. We only have about 5 weeks until testing. Any suggestions?
