    I have been taking the social studies test for middle school and haven't passed it yet in four attempts.....it was pretty much the EXACT same questions each time I took the test...I would say 90% of the questions were the EXACT same.

    Hey I have started my path of obtaining a Indiana teaching license via Advance degree alternative route. I need to take Secondary pedagogy (006) and Life science Content area test to obtain my license. Can anyone help me with what material is best to prepare for those test? I don't have teachers degree. I have MSc in Biology and currently teach biology lectures and labs at IUPUI. ANuy suggestions on where should I start with?

    Welcome to A to Z, Hiral Patel.

    If you're teaching biology on the university level, the life science content test should cover material that's quite familiar. You might take a look at Indiana's science content standards and curriculum, posted on the website of the state department of education, to discover other content that Indiana includes in life sciences. The discussions of other states' science tests on A to Z's Single Subject Tests subforum may also be helpful; you can reach that subforum by scrolling back to the top of this webpage, clicking on Examinations for Teachers, and choosing Single Subject Tests from the list that results.

    The pedagogy test will require you to know and apply terminology and practices in teaching and child development. Given your background, your best bet might be finding a pedagogy textbook - if IUPUI offers teacher education courses, the university bookstore or library should have several - and working through it, or perhaps hiring a tutor. Pedagogy exams are also discussed in the Other Tests subforum, though not that frequently: navigate there by going back to the Examinations for Teachers link as I explained above.

    Print out the test blue print and start taking notes. In my experience, the study guide that matches the test is the one sold by Pearson. Memorize those questions! The practice test that they sell only lasts for 90 (????) days in your account.

    Yes, that's the one! Good luck. I am still taking notes and it has been 10 days straight of this nonsense.

    HI all, I still need a resource on the teacher scenarios in the Math portion of the Indiana Generalist. I even asked a math professor who could not find any. Any suggestions? I would really appreciate it!
