This week across the district, RMA students have the chance to show what they know about U.S. History, Algebra I and Biology. In addition to following a TEKS aligned accelerated curriculum in all their classes, students have been preparing with extra practice during EOC blitzes in these three subject over the last month.
Even with all this practice, testing can cause anxiety and stress for students. Our staff made a few plans on how to lighten the mood and help our students know they were prepared to reach the STAARs!
Our Corpus Christi bulldog teachers dressed up like superheroes. They wanted to tell their students they were there to protect against test anxiety and encourage them that their “superheroes” had prepared students for everything they would see on the test.
Our Odessa wolfpack teachers took aiming for the STAARs a little more literally— by dressing up STAR WARS style. These galactic leaders brought humor to their students and encouraged them that they too could join the all-STAAR team.
We can’t wait to see the great growth our students have made on the STAAR test. We know they have worked hard and we are so grateful for the dedication of our staff in these EOC efforts!
