This updated manual prepares tenth-grade students in Florida to excel on the state-administered reading and writing test. An overview of the reading test is followed by a pretest, test-taking advice, and an explanation of each of the state standards evaluated on the test. Exercises focus on vocabulary, reading comprehension, knowledge of literary elements, and the research process. Two complete FCAT practice tests in reading comprehension are presented with answer explanations. The study unit that follows presents instruction on the elements of essay writing and includes sample essays. The book’s concluding section offers guidance for teachers and parents in helping to prepare students for both the reading and writing sections.
