Reading Tests as a Genre Study
Hornof, Michelle
Reading Teacher, v62 n1 p69-73 Sep 2008
By viewing standardized reading tests as a unique genre that could be taught, the author designed a two-week genre study for her reading workshop. The article describes how she planned, taught, and reflected on the unit. This genre study resolved some of the dilemmas she faced around preparing students for mandated testing. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
