New Tech students in grades nine through 11 are taking part in an End of Course blitz as they get ready to take statewide assessments in English I, Algebra I, Biology and U.S. History. Students realize that while it is great to attend a New Tech school, they are not exempt from the EOC. Teachers are collaborating, sharing ideas and maximizing teamwork to finish another year strong EOC strong that is.
The school’s blitz gives the students one more opportunity to review concepts they were taught throughout the year. The blitz is an aggressive, fast-paced activity that each teacher uses to challenge the learners. Students love the blitz because it takes them from the beginning of the year to where they are now in a specific content area.
The blitz tests students’ mental stamina, comprehension, knowledge, depth and ability to articulate previously taught skills and concepts. Each year teachers and students look forward to the blitz as a way to demonstrate their “survival skills.” For years, “survival rates” have been extremely high when it came to the EOC blitz. In fact, students are enthusiastically standing up to the challenge as they show teachers and peers that they are indeed ready for what they are about to embark upon.
