So what has changed from the previous version of the test as far as scoring?

I keep thinking that explaining relevance is always the most important thing we can do for students. If students can complete an analysis in a very logical method it is a cross over skill.

Test fatigue can factor in to the ER performance, too. We had a student who needed two tries to pass his RLA exam, and he told me after he passed that it was a mistake to take two tests the day he took the RLA test. He was exhausted by the time he got to the ER and knew he didn't do well on the test.

Do students who have English as a second language at a disadvantage for the extended response part of the GED test if the GED test is taken in English? Are other languages besides English and Spanish offered?

Debate games work for this....You know like tell me which is better. Fries or onion rings.

Date, Source, Bias, and Scope are the four main areas I focus on to give them a quick checklist of things to consider. We work a LOT with those four things. That + scaffolding which forces them to fill in blanks that analyze. French fries are one thing, but I find they don't usually know what questions to ask about a more academic argument. You have to tell them.

I do not teach the class for writing the essay itself. Rhonda Leneaugh would be able to really be able to answer your question more directly.
Brenda Blumenberg

I like that It will be good to use in English class too

That is when you say tatoos or no.....and why with data.

Yes, If you have students who'd be interested - let me or Andrew know. I don't have the next one scheduled, but plan to teach it periodically.
