STAAR-M Reading Rehearsal

Introduction

Level H1

Introduction STAAR Reading Test The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) replaced the TAKS beginning with the 2011–2012 school year. The STAAR tests are similar to the previous TAKS tests, but are more rigorous. The STAAR tests continue to measure how well students are learning the Texas state curriculum known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). STAAR–Modified (STAAR–M) Reading Test The STAAR–M Reading test is an assessment based on modified achievement standards. It assesses the same TEKS curriculum as the STAAR. However, the test has differences in format such as larger font, fewer items per page, and items within passages as well as after passages. The test also has fewer answer choices, simpler vocabulary, and simpler wording of items.

Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

The STAAR–M Reading tests assess the student expectations described in the TEKS. The TEKS is divided into the following three categories: Reporting Category 1: Understanding and Analysis Across Genres STER. .

PERM STAAR-M Reading Rehearsal STAAR-M Reading Rehearsal provides 6 literary and informational passages. Students read each passage and answer multiple-choice questions about the passage. Students are given a maximum of 4 hours to complete the test. STAAR Questions and Directions STAAR-M Reading Rehearsal only includes multiple-choice questions. Each question offers three possible answer choices. Students should review the questions and three choices carefully and select the answer they think is best. There is no penalty for guessing, so even if students are not certain of the correct answer, they should always pick one.

Test-Taking Strategies There are six steps that you can follow to become a better test taker.

1. Relax: Everyone gets nervous about tests. It is normal. Try to relax and not worry! 2. Listen: Listen to and read all the directions carefully! Ask your teacher to explain any directions you do not understand.

E L P SAM ATION C U D E ! Y L RAL 99.RALLY . 8 8 8

3. Read: Read each question and answer very carefully! 4. Think: If you are not sure how to answer a question right away,Erelax and ST R. choices A M E . give yourself some time to think about it. Eliminate answer KLIN Y WAY ACthose N L A B that you know are incorrect and choose from that remain. A N I T UCED S NOsure I D O T I • Do what you are asked to Edo. Make you understand what R . P RE TD H E G B I R O the question is asking. COPY IS BOOK T S I K O • Make sure your answer BO R THmakes sense. Think it through. E O L F P N M VE answer seems right, pick the answer that If SAmore than T GIone O THI•S sounds N S I ION best or most correct.

ISS ERMPlan P5. Your Time:

Do not spend too much time on any one question! If a question seems to take too long, skip it and go back to it later (if possible). Answer the questions you are sure of first. 6. Be Positive: Some questions will be hard to answer and others will be easy. Don’t be concerned with other students. Just concentrate and try your best!

Rogelio complained all the time. He always felt like there was too much to do. He had to walk the family dog twice a day. He had to babysit his little sister. Some days, he had to vacuum and sweep. He also had homework to do each night. He often thought about the future. He imagined it as a glorious time where he would be free to do as he pleased.

2

Rogelio heard his parents come in the front door with his little sister. He groaned. It was past time to walk the dog, and he hadn’t taken out the trash. He decided to hide out for a while. He crept down the hallway and opened the door to the closet under the stairs. He quietly closed the door and took a deep breath.

Rogelio was hungry. He noticed what looked like a store. A man stood outside handing out free samples. They looked like small colored fruits. The man explained that the purple fruit was a pepperoni pizza. He told Rogelio that the yellow fruit was chocolate ice cream. Rogelio tried one of each. They were tasteless. But strangely enough, Rogelio’s hunger was gone.

7

In a nearby park, some kids were lounging on synthetic grass. Rogelio thought they looked familiar. Suddenly, a girl cried out that it was almost time for class. A boy said that he had to review his notes before an important test later that day. Each of them touched an electronic device to their heads for a few seconds. Then the group sailed off on their skates. Nobody paid any attention to where they were going. The skates already knew.

Evening came. As the light dimmed, all the buildings began to glow. Before long, it was again as bright as day. Rogelio found another park. He collapsed on a bench next to an old woman. She stared at Rogelio for a few seconds.

9

“You are from here, I think,” she said. “But you are not from now.” Rogelio asked her how she could tell. She told him that his sneakers gave it away. She said they had not made shoes like that for centuries. She asked Rogelio what he was planning to do. Did he want to go back to the time when people had to cook and chew food? Did he like it better when a small pill provided all nutrients? Did he want to go back to the time when people had to study? Or did he want to be able to just tap his head with a Wizard Zap?

Jordan was born in 1936. She was the youngest daughter of a Baptist minister. She grew up in a poor neighborhood in Houston. Poverty did not hold her back. She graduated with honors from high school in 1952. Then she went to college at Texas Southern University. She could not attend the University of Texas. At that time, that school did not admit minorities.

4

During this time, life for many African Americans was full of obstacles. Women were also struggling to be seen as equals. This was true throughout the United States. However, Barbara Jordan was both talented and determined.

5

Barbara Jordan had a natural gift for public speaking. She had an extraordinary booming voice. Some people described it as a “voice of gold.” Jordan was a member of her school’s debate team. Jordan earned the top prize in junior oratory at a debate competition at Baylor University. This was the first of many first place prizes in her debate career.

Barbara Jordan impressed the world during the Watergate hearings. In 1976, she was asked to deliver the keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention. She was the first African American to receive that honor. Some Democrats began to think that Jordan might run for president someday. She was on Jimmy Carter’s early list of 14 names for the vice president. However, Jordan was ill with multiple sclerosis. Her health became worse over time. She finally had to retire from government life.

11

That was not the end of her influence. Jordan’s ideas influenced a new generation of American leaders. She taught for sixteen years at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas. She taught classes in ethics and public policy. Her passion for good government and the Constitution made her a popular teacher.

The human heart is referred to all the time. It is described in song lyrics, literature, and everyday speech. If we’re unlucky at love, we suffer heartbreak. We give heart-shaped cards on Valentine’s Day. The truth is, however, that the human heart has only one function. That function is to pump blood through the body.

A major step in developing an artificial heart took place in 1953. A machine was invented that could take over for the heart during open-heart surgery. A partial artificial heart was implanted in 1966. In 1967, Doctor Christiaan Barnard performed the first human heart transplant. The patient lived for 18 days with his new heart.

5

Heart transplants became more common over the years. They also became much more successful. Today, there are about 2,000 hearts available for transplants each year. This is not nearly enough. Doctor O.H. Frazier is a heart transplant pioneer. He describes how the number of available hearts is declining. He says that the decline is partly due to fewer automobile and motorcycle accidents. Doctor Frazier has done a lot for heart transplant patients. He has completed over 1,000 heart transplants. He has also done many studies on heart transplants. This includes several on total artificial hearts. He knows that there is a lack of available hearts. He believes that finding a safe artificial heart could be the answer.

After touring the Visitor Center, the families went into the Behrens Cabin. It was a two-room log cabin built in the 1870s by a German immigrant. Then they wandered off to the Danz Cabin. It was named after the family that built it in the 1840s. Roscoe watched Sylvia explore the cabin. She ran her hands over the rough walls. As she did this, she explained to Tony how the cabin had been constructed. Sylvia ran her hands over the places where the logs were joined. She described how the places felt where the ax had chipped into the logs. Roscoe had never thought about experiencing his world this way. He always relied on his sight. He started to run his hands over the wood. He could imagine Mr. Danz swinging his ax over and over to make a home for his family.

Sylvia announced that she could smell lunch being cooked on a woodburning stove. As they walked down the path, Roscoe could see that she was right. There were people in costumes in the living history farm. They were acting out life on a Texas farm about a hundred years ago. Sylvia told Roscoe that somebody was churning butter. Roscoe had never thought of butter as having a smell before. Now that he tried, he could smell butter in the air. He closed his eyes and listened to the sound of the butter churn.

10

As he stood with his eyes closed, he heard a plodding sound. It was the sound of horses plowing the garden. He could smell the rich earth they turned over. Roscoe felt like his mind had been plowed that afternoon. Sylvia had helped him experience the world in new ways. Both of them had made a new friend that afternoon.

Plucking the curry leaves, I know, is the final step. Mama has shown me this a thousand times. She heats oil, adds mustard seeds. They pop and release scents that signify history, discipline— 25 this ritual our ancestors foretold in a recipe. Mama says, “Individuals fade, but stew is immortal.” As the steam rises up and all the while, I grow hungrier. The din of Dad washing dishes and Mama humming makes me see chepa pulusu is a courtship of flavor 30 blended like family. Mama lowers the burner, says, “Chepa pulusu is better when it sits. The seasonings mix, build an exquisite taste—tomorrow, we’ll enjoy together.”
