    What reading strategies can I use for tests and reading passages?
    • Questions 1st - Look at the questions first and figure out what reading concept we have covered in class that you are being tested on.            
    • Read - Read and write the GIST (Summarizing/finding the main idea). *Highlight or underline important vocabulary.        
    • Answer Questions - Answer the questions...*Re-read parts of the passage to find the answers to the questions. *Eliminate answer choices.
    • Prove Your Answers  - SHOW YOUR WORK- Mark with your pencil  OR highlight the part of the passage where you found the answer. *Use REASONING when selecting an answer (DO NOT GUESS!!).
