On January 29th and 30th students in all grades will be writing LA and Social midterms. On Tuesday the 29th they will write an LA reading comprehension MidTerm, and on Wednesday, the 30th they will write a Social Studies Midterm.
This test is a low-stakes test, with the idea that the students will experience the pattern of writing a major exam and will not be a large part of their mark, unlike final exams. Please encourage studying habits as our goal is for them to practice studying for cumulative tests. Students will be provided with exam review materials before the exams as well as some ideas for how to study for a cumulative test.
Students will arrive at school at normal time (8:55) for homeroom, write the test for one hour, and then will have regular classes (though shortened) for the rest of the day and will go home at normal time (3:28).
If you have any questions, please contact your child's social studies or LA teacher.
