Grades 11, 12
This course is designed to prepare students for the SAT. Through practice exercises and quizzes, the students develop strategies and skills needed to achieve success on the math, verbal, and writing sections of the test, focusing on sentence completion, reading comprehension, standard written English usage, and impromptu essay development. Students will take ownership of their own progress, as this course focuses on individual student growth. All work will be student-centered, with significant peer interaction and individual reflection. Student progress will be monitored via a baseline test, frequent checks, and comparison to PSAT results.
