MY ELA STUDY PLAN
By: Meredith Good
During the 4th grade year, we need to learn many things for the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (P.S.S.A.). First of, I found out that I need to study vocabulary for the test to understand the questions and their clever speech. Next, I found out that I need to give a lot of detail to prove my answer or theory. And finally, I found out that I need to know how to answer tricky questions on the test.
Since I need to learn all these things, I will need to make a plan. First, I will create some thing to learn the words I don’t know. To help me learn these words I will make a vocabulary book flashcards, or a game board to use with the flash cards.
Second of all, when I answer a question, I need to give a lot of detail to support my answer. To help myself I will practice going back into the article to find more information to support my answer.
Finally, I need to practice skills to answer tricky questions. I can do that by learning their tricky speech that they will try to trick me with, and I practice rereading the question to try and understand what they are saying.
I will try and learn these things during class and at home. I will practice a lot until after the P.S.S.A. I know that it will take a lot of effort to learn these things, but it will help me study for the P.S.S.A.
