Test-Taking Teaching Strategies to Share with Your Students

Today on TeachHUB.com, the folks at Chalkupshared with us some teaching strategies in the form of test-taking tips, knowing that standardized test season is upon us. So wit SATs and ACTs aswirl in the minds of kids everywhere, today we look at different time-tested study methods.

Today’s studying ideas (and detailed ideas to carry them out) include:

  • Study Tunes
  • Flashcards
  • Create an Online Support System
  • And More!

Today’s article ends like this: “During a hectic test season, keep a stack of flashcards by your bedside. It’s a great pre-sleep activity when it’s a good idea to power down anything with a screen (turning off screens is really helpful for catching Zs, but that’s another blog post). For everywhere else, look for a trusty digital flashcard deck that travels well.”
