The region of South Asia includes the nations of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

To maximize the effectiveness of the New York State Coach, English Language Arts, Grade 8, do the
following:
• Review the New York State English and Language Arts standards to familiarize yourself with the
test’s content.
• Before any lessons, give your students the Pretest, remembering that:
• Dictionaries, thesauri, and other reference materials (except those that New York State allows) are
not allowed.
• You can encourage, instruct, and clarify only for each section’s directions.
• You should grade the Pretest and the Posttest like you would the actual test. This is the best way to
simulate actual test results.
• You can compare each student’s pretest results to the Pretest Competencies Analysis Chart in the
printed Teacher’s Guide to identify the content each student is struggling with. Then, focus
instruction on that content.
