Students in Coach Hancock's reading classes at Harwood Junior High used an Escape Room to prepare for the Reading STAAR. Each group was given a box filled with many different locked objects. They had to work as a team and use their problem solving skills to decode the clues that would unlock each combination. Clues tested the students' skills in main idea, text organization, conflict, inference, point of view, plot, and using a dictionary. Each class was successful in escaping the room and were ready to rock the STAAR!
