      Eleonore,
      thanks for the encouraging words. I am feeling a little overwhelmed over the weekend. Nothing like a short week (only 2 days), a 5 day weekend and 110 6th graders to put everything in perspective. If, through your web page, I can gain a support group of Science people, readers and non-readers---I feel that I am up to the challenge. I hate to have all the time, effort and $$ go down the tubes with nothing to show for it.

      Oh don't worry about pride, during this process you have none. My mentor has been very useful in some areas but for the SCIENCE stuff, she admits to knowing nothing. As much as anything I think I need direction......hopefully your site will be helpful.

      OH MY!!� Read the inspirational message that I sent.� Encourage <BR>
      yourself.� Look at what you did well and pat yourself on the back. <BR>
      You might need to see a sample of someone's portfolio to get a better <BR>
      picture.� I did this. It wasn't a science portfolio either.� My <BR>
      mentor was in special education and her husband taught English.� My <BR>
      paper was torn to shreds by BOTH my mentors-- red ink went every <BR>
      where followed with sticky tabs to show even more.� I swallowed my <BR>
      pride...it was so hard to take...� But I had to believe in this case <BR>
      they were right and out to help me succeed. <BR>
      ��� But she was oh so helpful in every way that she let me browse <BR>
      through her porfolio because I was just not well at writing, <BR>
      according to my college English professors.� This discouraged me so <BR>
      that I found classes that required no term papers first before <BR>
      anything else.� I am NOT lying about this!! Maybe the English <BR>
      professor sucked!!.. I don't know.� <BR>
      �� Try not to settle for one person to judge your entries... go with <BR>
      your gut.� Let me say this... my mentor also said, "Eleonore, I am <BR>
      lost in your video... I don't get it...what are doing?"� Well, at <BR>
      that point it was a one shot take. I started to worry. But I felt <BR>
      strongly I was on the right track...and I didn't know what else I <BR>
      could do anyway.� I didn't change a thing...� I got a 4 on that <BR>
      entry. <BR>
      �� To be honest AFTER I had done all but 1 of my entries, I thought I <BR>
      did better than my friend Amy on one of them.� I finally read two of <BR>
      her entries in science but we had developed a long distance mutal <BR>
      trust. (There can be no room for plagarism).<BR>
      �� I guess this will be your 3rd time.� Look over your original <BR>
      entries.� Think back to maybe what you had missed and decide on what <BR>
      to change. Nonetheless stay encouraged and go ahead and try to find <BR>
      some else to look over your ideas over.� Thanks for the comments <BR>
      about the site, I hope that it can help you out in some way.<BR>

      looks super. I need to re-group...the mentor I had for 2 years <BR>
      obviously does not have the expertise in Science, my scores actually <BR>
      dropped...to say the least I was so depressed I slept 18 hours <BR>
      straight on Friday/Saturday!!!! Scared my 12 year old daughter to <BR>
      death! I'm kinda of a loss as to where to start. <BR>

        OK, well I did not pass my second time. I did much better, but those
        assessments killed me. I have a few questions:
        1. So if I chose to retake, and retake a third time, they will not take my
        highest score, they take the score I get?
        2. Any suggestions for the assessment centers?
        Thanks Kallie

          Kallie,
          I understand that if you decide to bank your low scores then you end up with the newest score.  It is like starting from scratch for that particular entry.
          As far as the assessment center is concerned I would suggest practicing answering the questions using different scenarios.  Since you've already been there you kind of know the drill.  I struggled w/ misconceptions so I read mostly about common ones and why they were commonly misconceived.
          Good luck.  I will keep you in my prayers.
