FCAT Explorer was specifically designed to expose you to FCAT-like passages and questions. It's that extra help you can get to be successful on this year's FCAT.
REMEMBER! A 3 or higher on Reading FCAT will exempt you from taking Reading in 9th grade.
We are currently reading Nothing But the Truth in conjunction with our benchmark study.
It is imperative that you attend class and are active in these discussions because you are getting VITAL skills and strategies to help you pass the FCAT Reading Test!
I will help you score a 3 or higher WITHOUT having to read an entire passage on the test!
Note: These activities are things that cannot be made up at home. You must be in class to get these activities.
If you have an EXCUSED absence, as with Somerset Prep (and district) policy, you will receive TWO school days to make up the work. Within those TWO school days, you must schedule a time with me to get the instruction you missed during your EXCUSED absence.
