“This book shows content-area teachers how test preparation materials can supplement their classroom instruction rather than replacing their usual subject-specific content.  This integrated approach for test prep will be more meaningful for students by making the learning and practice test questions more relevant. This book assists teachers in developing an integrated approach to test prep instead of feeling that test prep is an 'extra' requirement that steals time from their content study.” –Karen Benningfield, Supervisor of Secondary Instruction, White County Schools, Sparta, Tennessee
