Testing Makes Me Feel . . .

Every year, after the test, I do this prompt. I tell kids that they can’t describe the test questions themselves (not allowed by law). But that’s really a non-issue. They feel crushed and dehumanized and I’m always inches away from quitting after the week-long testing marathon.

  1. Someone asked if I was “leading kids on” with the facial expression. I tried it first with a smile and kids thought he was being fake and sarcastic. It led to a very different discussion of how we act at school.
