Good Luck, Minions!!!

Your English I STAAR exams are tomorrow (writing) and Tuesday (reading), in case you had forgotten.  ;)   So, here are some last minute words of advice.

Remember to eliminate answers that can't be the answer for multiple choice questions, to pace yourself with essays (alternate with multiple choice to avoid fatigue!), to roughly sketch out plans for your essays so you don't end up stuck not knowing where to go (and don't forget strong thesis statements and good examples with expository essays and a plot that has resolution and engaging characters in your stories on literary essays), that OERs use textual evidence (and are on Tuesday's test), to read all selections and questions thoroughly to avoid missing key words and ideas, and most importantly...BREATHE!

I believe in you, minions, so believe in yourselves!  <3
