TAKS time around the corner; district preps students

TAKS testing will be fully underway in about a month, but Ennis ISD teachers and students have been preparing for the test the entire year.
The TAKS test is based on Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Since the TEKS dictate the curriculum of a particular subject, students learn what they need to know without the teacher having to “teach the test,” said Keith Larson, curriculum director for EISD.

“If the teacher is teaching the curriculum for that subject, they’re preparing students for TAKS,” he said. “We try to stress (to students) that what they learn in class is going to prepare them for what they are going to see on the test.”
