American Lit: USATestPrep!


ELAGSE11-12RL1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.

Learning Target: I can demonstrate my mastery of the standards on a USA Test Prep practice assessment.

Opening Session: Grab a computer and log in – we’re going to do some USA Test Prep today! For our opening, I’ll be going around making sure everyone can log in to the website OK 🙂

Work Session: You’ve got the entire work session today to take this USATestPrep assessment. This is sort of our diagnostic assessment for the semester that will tell me y’all’s strengths and weaknesses. Please actually try hard on this, because if I know where everyone needs actual help, then I can help you master those standards – and that’s what everyone wants to do, right?

After you finish the USATestPrep assessment, review vocab for tomorrow, catch up on Independent Reading, or work on anything you might have missed this week.

Closing Session: While I have the laptops in here, I want to briefly introduce you guys to OneNote, which is how we will be turning in all of our assignments. Go to and log in, and I’ll give you some time to play around 🙂

Assessment: Formative (USATestPrep)
