In this outline, I have included some catch-all terms and phrases for the topics presented in the 'Test Layout' topics sections. Be assured that we will be covering all of the topics discussed in that section over the two workshops.

Recap 

Students should be prepared for four hours of instruction each day. Each day is separated into two sessions of one hour and fifty minutes each, and the sessions will be separated by a twenty minute question and answer period (students can also utilize this time period as a break/snack time). 

Students should bring: a calculator, pens/pencils, paper (either loose sheets or notebooks will suffice), and a laptop/device of some kind. 

A digital study guide will be distributed prior to each lesson. The students will use the digital study guide in order to keep pace with the lesson, and they will be advised to take notes. 

The lead instructor is named Raina Royale. Raina has been involved with education as either a teacher or an administrator for more than ten years. The majority of her experience is with eighth grade students. If she cannot make it on either the 11th or 18th, Frank Torres, Middle Tree's Education Director, will take her place. 

We will be sure to let you know if anything changes!
