I love Standardized Tests! Said no teacher ever. This is so true! Although I believe that you must teach what's on standardized test you should make it a point that what you are teaching is important. As a teacher, you should make the content you are teaching relatable to your students' lives. students, school, standard test, children, learning, common core, education, assessment, teachers
