Michigan ECCE Practice Tests – Get them here! « Passing English If you are planning to take the Michigan ECCE this summer and studying alone it’s time to start doing as many Practice Tests as possible – and pay special attention to timing as the Michigan does not allow you much for each paper and this is often the biggest problem for candidates. I know from experience how difficult and expensive it can be to get hold of enough ECCE tests to prepare with. Most of the big listening sites don’t have Michigan-specific materials – although this exam is popular in some countries it doesn’t seem to have made an impact on the mainstream ESL community online.

How to teach … times tables Not knowing their multiplication tables can really slow children's mathematical progress once they get to secondary school. Everyone knows it's all about practice, and this can get tiresome. So how to drum these basic skills into your pupils' heads without turning them off? The Guardian Teacher Network has some great resources and ideas to help provide a solid times tables platform for students while at the same time helping teachers (and parents at home, where much of the practising must be done) to keep it fresh. One of the network's star resource providers, maths teacher Mel Muldowney, explains: "Students coming to secondary without knowing their times tables often think they can't do what they are learning in class. They might sit in class thinking they can't do Pythagoras' Theorem as they are not getting the right answer when multiplying, say, seven times seven – but it's not the new work they aren't grasping.
What are the Fallacy Files? I began collecting and studying logical fallacies about twenty-five years ago, when I first became interested in logic. This collection took two forms: A collection of named fallacies—such as "ad hominem"—that is, types of bad reasoning which someone has thought distinctive and interesting enough to name and describe. This collection took the form, primarily, of the study and acquisition of books and articles on the named fallacies, especially textbooks and reference books. How to Prepare for the Michigan Test Battery "How to Prepare for the Michigan Test Battery" is written by Pamela Sharpe. This book may be purchased on Amazon.com. But why wait for your review and preparation materials to come by postal mail?

Use an in place of a when it precedes a vowel sound, not just a vowel. That means it's “an honor” (the h is silent), but “a UFO” (because it's pronounced yoo eff oh). Most of the confusion with a or an arises from acronyms and other abbreviations: some people think it's wrong to use an in front of an abbreviation like “MRI” because “an” can only go before vowels.
