Before the Test: How I Taught Writing and Sixteen Out of Thirty-Two Students Made the Highest Scoreby Barbara Charbula, Barry Lane (Foreword by)
Before the Test is a compelling read. Down-to-earth and commonsensical, Barbara Charbula recounts her method of teaching her students to write and prepare for state mandated tests. As you read, you feel as if you are listening to the author. Her purpose is clear and untethered to copious theory. Yet, the reader knows Charbula knows her theory for she applies it in consistent, kid-friendly ways. By employing R.E.A.S.S., students are not invoking a formula but a mnemonic device that takes them back to the best classroom practices and lessons they have received throughout the school year.
