Orchard Knob Middle School students will attend the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program Boot Camp Wednesday-Friday at the Chattanoogan Hotel.
TCAP Boot Camp is designed to give students an opportunity to engage with TCAP style problems, critical thinking skills, and test-taking strategies in a unique and innovative way. By taking students off campus to practice and prepare for testing, staff members and volunteers will be able to focus on the best practices and strategies for high-stakes testing while making the experience exciting and productive for each grade level, officials said.
The speaker on Wednesday for the sixth graders will be UTC Football Coach Russ Huesman. Coach Lurone Jennings, retired educator, coach and community stakeholder, will speak to the seventh graders on Thursday. The event will conclude Friday with Eric “The Voice” Foster, radio personality WJTT speaking to the eight graders.
