Fifth-grade students and teachers throughout New Jersey will find extensive preparation for the required Language Arts Literacy Test in this workbook. An opening chapter describes the test and its method of scoring. Chapters that follow review reading and understanding narrative and everyday ( i.e.,factual) texts, writing a story, and writing a persuasive essay. A concluding chapter instructs on avoiding common errors in sentence structure and writing effective dialogue. Practice sections follow each lesson, and full-length practice tests with answers appear at the back of the book.
