Description & Features

This required 64-page guide must be used by the teacher to lead students through the lessons and activities in the student workbook-sold separately. This guide includes answers with helpful explanations.

In the process of learning and practicing these thinking skills, students will have the opportunity to practice listening and following directions. They will also discuss answers so you can assess their thinking and assure them that they're thinking carefully. This book also teaches them to answer questions even when their answer is uncertain or the question is difficult. This practice can build confidence, reduce anxiety, and remove obstacles that can hinder students from performing their best on tests.

Unlike most practice tests that lack vital instruction in test-taking skills, Thinking Skills for Tests presents these essential thinking skills that form the base of both verbal and nonverbal reasoning and logic:

     •  Listen
     •  Classify Objects and Concepts
     •  Build Vocabulary Through the Process of Elimination
     •  Relate Concepts
     •  Verbal Reasoning
     •  Reason with Analogies
     •  Arithmetic Reasoning
     •  Sequence
     •  Recognize Patterns
