  • Sample Question
    For young children, losing privileges for short amounts of time can be very effective.  One way for this to happen is by using what is called “Time-Out.”  Time-Out means time away from all those fun things in a child’s life.  It is a way of disciplining your child without raising your hand or your voice.  Basically, Time-Out involves having your child sit in one place for a certain amount of time.  You can easily see that most kids wouldn’t like Time-Out because they would rather be doing fun things (Burke & Herron, 1996, p. 40).

  • Sample Question
    Basketball was invented in 1891 by a physical education instructor in Springfield, Massachusetts, by the name of James Naismith. Because of the terrible weather in winter, his physical education students were indoors rather than outdoors. They really did not like the idea of boring, repetitive exercises and preferred the excitement and challenge of a game. Naismith figured out a team sport that could be played indoors on a gymnasium floor, that involved a lot of running, that kept all team members involved, and that did not allow the tackling and physical contact of American-style football. Question: What is the main idea of the passage?
