Starting to think about the upcoming NYS Middle School exam? Our middle school teachers want to prepare students without turning the class into traditional test prep. We've adapted five of our instructional routines to encourage collaborative discourse around multiple choice questions.

Teacher can use the 2018 Middle School Exam data graphs to target what type of multiple choice question to tackle, adapt the question for their current content and texts, then use the adapted routines as a way to practice answering those questions.
