Overview

Steven Schneider's newly revised second edition of How Parents Can Help Kids Improve Test Scores: Taking the Stakes Out of Literacy Testing highlights the most recent literacy initiatives in America since the federal act of No Child Left Behind. His book has been redesigned to further help teachers and parents navigate through the maze of newly developed state standardized testing in reading and writing, so students may be able to achieve greater success. By using the proactive methods shown in this book and by following easily understood step-by-step instructions, parents and teachers can begin to help their children take the first steps down the road to literacy and to understanding the Common Core language arts subjects.

This book features time-tested activities, suggestions, and a plethora of practical advice to assist teachers and parents in raising children's scores on standardized state reading tests. By utilizing the highly prescriptive “Pinpoint Reading Program,” newly revised in this second edition, parents and teachers will gain new insights into the format, style, and objectives of these tests and how they can assist children to score higher. Most importantly, this book instills the confidence that children need to achieve the success that they rightfully deserve and for which their parents and teachers have come to expect.
