TExES Special Education EC-12 Tip #1 – Demystify the Real Exam

It’s an all-too-common story.

A potential Texas teacher cracks open the first page of his TExES Special Education EC-12 practice book.  He takes a look at the first question.  After he finishes, he promptly walks over to his medicine cabinet, grabs a couple of aspirin and gulps it down – because he’s got a major headache.

Sure, it might seem like an exaggeration.  But the point of this example is to emphasize a terrible effect that TExES Special Education EC-12 practice tests have on potential teachers.  Instead of helping them to gain the testing confidence for their Texas Educator Certification Test and know-how needed to get that minimum passing score

Be wary of free TExES practice tests online. “Free” sample questions are normally not like the actual test questions you’re going to face.

…They wind up feeling more befuddled and confused than ever before.

Let’s face it: good test practice should help you to demystify the exam, not add to your confusion and exam nerves.

TExES Special Education EC-12 Tip #2 – Learn Language Translation

  • When a TExES Special Education practice question asks you about metacognition, don’t throw up your hands and give up.  Instead, the makers of the test want to know if you understand how mental processes work, both with individual students and within the classroom.  “Meta” is just a fancy term that means “beyond, above the self.”  So metacognition means being self-aware about thinking.
  • Sheltered instruction may seem like it means to teach in a shelter, but not to worry; the actual definition is quite simple.  Sheltered instruction means to help students with limited English to learn the language while learning classroom content at the same time.
  • It’s important to know about guided versus independent reading, so get your fill of this test tip.  Guided reading means that the teacher provides supplemental study material that will help students to comprehend the reading, while independent reading means that the student seeks out this material on their own.
