ACT/SAT Prep

 

 

ACT or SAT Preparation (grades 10-12) – Leesa Wolf – “Slow and steady gets test takers ready.” Based on the detailed analysis of an individual’s diagnostic ACT or SAT test and college education plans, students begin this course by setting specific content and score goals. Throughout the semester, smart test-taking strategies and techniques are practiced. Targeted reading, English, math, and science (ACT) skills are discussed, with an emphasis on ACT or SAT specific tips. Students complete practice assignments at home per their initial goals; more sustained practice results in higher scores. If time allows, the optional essay writing test is covered. The semester concludes with a final full practice test, comparison to the initial goals, and development of an individualized future plan. 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: At least Algebra 1 complete; ability to write a 5 paragraph essay. Books: TBD pending release of latest editions. Required Work Prior to First Class: Complete one TBD released test, including the essay, under test-like conditions.
