Gr. 10 ELA MCAS Next Week

posted Mar 20, 2015, 10:28 AM by Erik Arnold
All sophomores will be taking the English Language Arts MCAS exam March 24-26. Because this is such an important exam for our students, we ask that parents try to make sure that their children are getting enough sleep at night, eating right, and getting to school on time. The exam on Tuesday consists of the students writing a long composition (4 pages max) based on a writing prompt related to a work of literature that they have read. The exam on Wednesday and Thursday consists entirely of reading comprehension questions. Students will be given an excerpt to read and then have to answer some multiple choice and open response questions based on what they read (Wash, Rinse, and Repeat multiple times!). Not exactly a great time for the students but important nonetheless.
