ACT/SAT Prep

 

SAT WritingACT/SAT Strategies (grades 9 – 11) – Leesa Wolf – “Slow and steady gets test takers ready.” Students begin their college testing studies by taking one diagnostic ACT and one diagnostic SAT. After scoring and analyzing his or her tests, each student determines which test to focus on (or both). Students then assess their preliminary college plans and set their initial score goals. Next, the full set of college test strategies are explained including preparing for test day, taking the test, studying wisely, and handling questions in each section: English/writing, reading, math, science (only on ACT), and essay. Strategies common to both tests are emphasized, but differences are highlighted. Foundational, lower level content skills common to both tests are studied and practiced using the associated strategies. Reading content addressed includes vocabulary, literal comprehension, and “big picture” questions. Writing content studied focuses on conventions, rules, and simpler rhetoric-oriented questions. Math content covered is limited to pre-algebra and algebra 1 content. Essay writing skills and ACT science practice are not included. Students conclude the class by establishing a forward study plan for themselves. No grades are given for this 14-week course because it does not fulfill any high school credits. However, completed checkpoints and milestones are listed in TeacherEase for the benefit of students and parents. Prerequisites: Pre-algebra complete, algebra 1 in progress. General knowledge of 5 paragraph essay structure. Textbooks: TBD pending release of latest versions. (Probably 3 top-tutor books costing approximately $28 each: ACT English, SAT Reading, ACT Math). Required homework during first two weeks of class: Complete TWO diagnostic tests: 1 SAT and 1 ACT.

Spring Course:  Fridays; 1/18-5/3/19; 10:45-12:15 pm

ACT Practice (grades 10-12) – Leesa Wolf – Ace the ACT! Using diagnostic test results and initial college plans, students begin this course by reestablishing their overall score goals, determining specific section score goals, and setting question count/approach strategies. After a very brief review of the ACT/SAT Strategies class content, more advanced subject matter is practiced and discussed. Topics covered include reading comprehension inference questions, writing test rhetoric questions, and math geometry/algebra 2/trig specific questions. For the ACT essay, students determine their own “prefabricated” content options and essay templates. Students complete practice assignments at home per their initial goals; more sustained practice results in higher scores. Regular “mini-tests” are completed both in-class and at home. The semester concludes with review using “one-pager” sheets of key information followed by a final full practice test. Results of the final test are compared to the initial goals, and a future plan is drafted. No grades are given for this 14-week course because it does not fulfill any high school credits. However, completed checkpoints and milestones are listed in TeacherEase for the benefit of students and parents. *Prerequisite: ACT Strategies Short Summer Course, Algebra 2 or higher in progress, ability to write a 5-paragraph essay. Textbooks: TBD pending release of latest versions. (Probably 3 released test & top-tutor books costing approximately $28 each: ACT Released Tests, Science Practice, Essay Practice).

Science

All science equipment and supplies are provided by HEP.  The cost of these supplies is included in the cost of the course.

See the Thursday Classical School for elementary science classes.

 

HEP recommends the following order for Science classes for Middle School:

Science 6  > Life Science 7   >   Physical Science 8/9  or  Science 8

 

Note:  We recommend students who are ready for high school science take Physical Science in grade 8 or 9, followed by Biology in grade 9 or 10. This will enable the student who plans to pursue a science or medical field to complete a more rigorous plan of study including Bio 2, Chem 2, and Physics.

Students not quite yet ready to take Physical Science or Biology should take our new hands-on Science 8. This course will be a great fit for those who enjoy using the internet and experiencing hands-on action in science.

 

HEP recommends the following order for Science classes for High School:

Physical Science   >    Biology 1    >    Chemistry 1    >   Bio 2, Chem 2, Physics  or

                                                                                     Marine Biology, Environmental Science

 

GETTING READY FOR COLLEGE SUGGESTIONS:  Strong science students are encouraged to take 2 science classes in grades 11 and/or 12 to prepare for the rigors of science on the collegiate level.

Students considering engineering or other science related fields should take:  Physical Science, Biology 1, Chemistry 1 and 2, Physics, and Calculus.

Students interested in a medical career should take Physical Science, Biology 1 and 2, Chemistry 1 and 2, Physics, and Medical Careers (science elective).

Science Exploration (grades 6-8) Leesa Wolf – Experience science in a real-world and hands-on fashion through the award-winning JASON curriculum!  Combining the experience of practicing scientists with unit studies, student experiments, and extensive interactive digital materials, the JASON program aims to inspire students to engage with science by focusing on current challenges facing today’s scientists. Beginning with a short ancillary unit on analyzing a Mythbusters episode, students learn how to “think like a scientist.”  With this foundation, students then complete two JASON units: Monster Storms and Terminal Velocity. Each unit covers aspects of physical, life, and earth/space science. The first half of each class includes discussing the assigned JASON articles/homework and completing associated class-wide activities. The second half of the class consists of 3 to 4 science centers where students rotate as small groups through guided-discovery, hands-on science explorations. While the curriculum is secular, where applicable, alternate scientific viewpoints are provided.  Detailed discussion of controversial topics is left to individual families.  Textbooks: Course costs include year-long access to the JASON on-line materials (see Jason.org) and science centers supplies. Students may need to purchase TBD supplemental paperbacks as part of the unit studies.
