Class Description

This unconventional, highly interactive, and fast paced workshop is designed for the college-bound student intending to face the rigors of either the SAT or ACT Exam, or both. By learning the differences and similarities, the structures and nuances, as well as the latest changes between these two exams, the student would be able to determine how effectively they can navigate in each test then appropriately decide which exam best suits their college-application needs.
Firstly, the SAT component, which will be taken during the first half of the semester, is geared to position the student to take the October 2017, SAT (and beyond). The review shall focus on the three key sections of the SAT Exam: SAT Math, SAT Reading, SAT Writing with the optional SAT Essay. Each week the student shall focus heavily on one subject-section of the SAT and learn to navigate through all the different question types for each subject domain. Approximately six weeks of reviewing the SAT component, the student will to have successfully completed four, timed, full practice exams. Because they have gained familiarity and a sizable degree of proficiency, the diligent student is able to translate their personal-best score into the real SAT Exam.
Secondly, the ACT component, which will be taken during the second half of the semester, is geared to position the student to take the December 2017, ACT (and beyond). The review shall focus on the four key sections of the ACT Exam: Math, Science, Reading, Writing with the optional ACT Essay. Each week the student shall heavily focus on one subject-section of the ACT and learn to navigate through all the different question types for each subject domain. Much like the first half of the course, approximately seven weeks of reviewing the ACT component, the student is expected to have successfully completed four, timed, full practice exams. Because they have gained familiarity and a sizable degree of proficiency, the hardworking scholar shall then be able to translate their personal-best score into the real ACT Exam.
With immersion as the primary approach of this course, the student will be trained in strategies and content. Through systematic, methodical correction, as well as calculated repetition, the student will be able to determine their specific learning-gaps and intentionally reduce common errors throughout parts of their timed practice tests. As the semester unfolds, the student shall intuitively acquire effective test-taking tactics, time-management methods, and better study skills. More than this, with study-support groups as the secondary approach of this course, the student shall experience a considerable degree of accountability as they participate in active units of rotating teams.
