Praxis PLT: Grades 5-9 Practice Questions
Are you preparing to be a teacher of 5-9th graders? Once you’re familiar with the PLT portion of the Praxis, check out these Praxis PLT practice questions:
C: Sarah’s success in math and English shows that she is likely not affected by a learning disability. Likewise maturity and self-confidence do not factor into her educational abilities in a negative manner. Given her success with hands-on manipulatives, Sarah is most likely experiencing a learning style issue.
D: Summative assessments are appropriate for the final, or summary, portion of a unit. They belong at the end of the instructional unit. Choice (D) is correct.
D: When thematic units of study from one subject can be implemented across multiple subjects, then teaching is considered thematic and interdisciplinary. This approach requires careful planning and, when more than one teacher is involved, thoughtful collaboration.
B: Garnering parent participation is a challenge for most educators. The first step in achieving this goal is to make sure parents know what is going on with their child. The means of communication needs to be adjusted based on the available methods of the parents. For example, the teacher should not rely solely on email for families who lack the technological resources to access it reasonably often.
