About

Your students may recognize words like determine, analyze, and distinguish, but do they understand these words well enough to quickly and completely answer a standardized test question? For example, can they respond to a question that says “determine the point of view of John Adams in his 'Letter on Thomas Jefferson′ and analyze how he distinguishes his position from an alternative approach articulated by Thomas Jefferson”?
