The third grade exams – which will take place in all institutions between the end of the lessons and 30 June – are the first real exam that a young person has to take. In the school, of course, but also in life. And if his task is to study, mum and dad can help him manage the situation calmly. How? Helping him to plan the moments of study and review, informing him about what will happen during rehearsals, listening to him while he repeats.
And, above all, by bringing it closer to instruments such as Redooc, a very valid help in preparing for the written test in Italian (but also in mathematics). By connecting to the dedicated section of the site, your child can try his hand at the narrative and descriptive text, the argumentative text and the understanding and synthesis of a text. In essence, you can train to take all the tests and then – during the exam – you have to choose.
But not only that, on Redooc you can find examples of tracks as indicated by the MIUR and also useful tips on how to structure the individual text. Because that’s the secret: to prepare yourself as best you can for the self-confident third grade exam. So, from his computer and maybe with your help, he can get familiar with the typical tracks of the written test will be the subject. Tracks that come directly from MIUR, and that’s why they are so useful.
The narrative text, for example, requires the student to choose carefully the characters, the setting in time and space, the narrator, the purpose and the recipient of the text that will compose. Text that always has a trace as a starting point: typically it is a passage from a book, or a free theme that requires a certain amount of imagination. The descriptive text, on the other hand, implies the use of a precise lexicon and the use of all five senses to describe the object of the theme. Whether this is a painting, a photograph, your neighborhood or a place you visit on holiday.
The argumentative text starts from a passage from a book, which the student must use as a starting point to argue his thesis: it requires persuasion, decision, mastery of the subject. Finally, there is a third typology that is the subject of the Italian test: the comprehension of the text and its synthesis. A complex operation, with very precise rules and the request for an excellent dose of concentration.
Thanks to Redooc, and thanks to MIUR, you can therefore help your child to prepare the written test of Italian in the best possible way, helping him to understand which type is most appropriate for him and providing him with all the tools needed to practice. In this way, you will allow him to keep stress under control, which is positive as long as it remains within manageable levels (as it allows you to improve attention and concentration) but that, if it is too much, can send the student into confusion and risk compromising his performance. Regardless of how prepared or not.
