My students take their standardized tests in September. In order to best prepare them, I wanted to know what reading skills I should tackle right now. We will start on a regular schedule tomorrow and I was planning on starting off with literary elements. Another colleague of mine told me I should start off with other reading skills. Any ideas on what I should start off with? I want to use as much of my time to truly prepare them, especially those coming in from an ESOL class. What would you do? Thanks in advance!
