Reviews: Goes over the material several times before being tested. Encourage your child to outline or "map" reading material for better understanding. To "map," a child places the main topic in the middle of a blank sheet of paper. He then draws a branch for each subheading and places supporting details on smaller branches going out from the subheading8. ThJ~ creatc~ a visual aid that in- creases organization and comprehension. Make sure .your children understand their text- books. Children should be able to read nine out of 10 words accurately and answer at least three out of four questions correctly. -Help your child predict outcomes, distinguish fact from opinion, discern emotional appeals, recognize bias and discern inference as they read. Encourage your children to organize their thoughts before beginning a written assignment and write at least two drafts. Have your child proofread and check for success or failure in answering the purpose of the assignment, leg- ibility, neatness, spelling, complete sentences and punctuation errors. Help your child to see tests as an opportunity to "show off" what they have learned, rather than some- thing to be feared. Help your children predict test questions as they study for tests. Encourage your child to space studying over sev- eral sessions instead of cramming the night before. Five hours of study spread over a week is better than study- ing five hours the night before the test. Cramming for tests increases anxiety and causes lower grades. Avoid acting as a tutor for your child. If a child needs a tutor in a particular subject, call the local high school Concluded p.ll ! I I
