Introducing Finish Line Georgia Milestones ELA . Designed to provide targeted instruction and practice to reinforce today’s standards, the series prepares test-takers for the Georgia Milestones exam.
Lesson Format Lessons are directly aligned to the Georgia Standards of Excellence. The four-part gradual release model takes students from teacher-led instruction to individual work: Skill Introduction, Focused Instruction, Guided Practice, and Independent Practice.
Close Reading of Rigorous Text Students are required to find evidence from texts to support their answers. A variety of authentic-text passages promote the rigor and text-complexity required by the Georgia Standards of Excellence.
Writing Component In addition to lessons on reading comprehension skills and vocabulary, each book includes a full unit of writing and language standards for students to practice the writing process, learn how to answer open-ended questions, and apply grammar and usage conventions.
Practice for Milestone Item Types Just like the assessment, item types include multiple choice, extended response, extended constructed response, and writing prompts.
Student Answer Booklets Budget-friendly! Answer booklets allow you to reuse your workbooks year after year. Students write their work directly into the booklets.
Annotated Teacher’s Editions Support includes: suggestions for use/teaching strategies; student book pages with correct answers, correlations to the Georgia Standards of Excellence and Depth of Knowledge (DOK), and answer rationales for items in the Independent Practice; speaking, writing, and listening activities; media/research activities; Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary; and ELL support.
