Overview

This resource helps teachers pass the required elementary subject exams for earning a teaching credential.

Because passing these tests is now required in many states, this book has been designed to address the essential time-management methods, essay and multiple-choice strategies, and content that test takers must master in order to pass any section of the exam. Unlike other preparation books, this one does not simply offer a copy of MSAT materials. Instead, the content, constructed-response and multiple-choice strategies, and special time-management models for the tests are all research based and tailored to cover each domain and content area of any of the exams.

This valuable new resource:

  • Offers effective time-management models. Critical time-management models for taking the whole exam in one sitting or individually are fully explained.
  • Presents the “real” scores required on each subtest. The book reveals the real scores required to pass each subtest and a method to achieve them.
  • Demonstrates effective constructed-response. Eleven essential essays (language arts, social studies, science, math, and the humanities) are presented and dissected for candidates.
  • Deconstructs multiple-choice questions. The multiple-choice section of the exam is challenging because many of the questions are lengthy, jargon-rich, or simply do not count toward one's score. Strategies are required and explained.
  • Addresses each of the content areas from elementary education: language arts, history and social studies, science, mathematics, and as well as the humanities, including P.E., health, child development, and the arts.
