One of my high school history students struggles mightily with tests. She is a hard-worker, does every single assignment to the best of her ability, does all the readings assignments, she takes careful notes, but when it comes to tests, she always does terribly. During the test, she takes longer than all other students and has a hard time narrowing down answers in the multiple-choice sections. She is really shy and quiet so I have some difficulties discerning if she has reading comprehension problems.
So, how have any of you have overcome similar problems with reading content and answer multiple-choice questions about it? Is there any online resources I can point to her or her family? Are there any strategies you can recommend that might help?
She is about to join an AP history class for the first time and I want to give her a fighting chance when it comes to the MC-test part of the class.
