Seven Intensive SAT Workshop sessions for high school students will be offered this summer that prepare students for the PSAT and the SAT. In these sessions, students will grow tremendously in their confidence as they master the skills needed to excel in Math, Writing and Language, and Reading. The SAT is comprised of a 100-minute Evidenced-Based Reading and Writing Section that contains a 65-minute Reading Test comprised of passages from literature, history, social studies, and science and a 35-minute Writing and Language Test. The SAT contains an 80-minute Math Section comprised of a 55-minute calculator-based test and a 25-minute non-calculator-based test. The SAT also contains a 50-minute Optional Essay. Students receive a score between 200 and 800 for Evidenced Based Reading and Writing and a score between 200 and 800 for Math. There are 1600 points possible on the SAT.

Session Information:

For 2019, two sessions of Math, three sessions of Writing and Language, and two sessions of Evidence-Based Reading will be offered. For each topic, select the session that works best for your schedule.

Math

Time: 6 – 9 pm

In this workshop, students are exposed to extensive practice and drills on the content covered on SAT MATH:

Students learn the strategies, techniques, and tricks that are necessary on both the calculator-based and the non-calculator-based sections in order to finish each section successfully in the allotted time. Practice makes perfect, and it is so true on SAT MATH. Students learn to approach SAT math sections with confidence. In addition to extensive practice and drills, students will also complete both calculator-based and non-calculator-based timed SAT Math sections throughout the course. Because each class covers new math content and builds on the skills and concepts covered in the previous classes, it is important that students attend all five classes of the Math Workshop.

Writing and Language

Time: 6 – 9 pm
The class time on Thursday, July 4 will be 9am - 12pm

In this Intensive Writing Workshop, students master the "Must Know" rules of grammar that are tested on the Language and Writing section of the SAT. Students learn to revise and edit text from a range of content areas and decide whether passages can be improved by making changes to words, punctuation, or sentence order. Students learn to correct errors in sentence structure, usage, and punctuation. Students also learn to improve the development and organization of a passage and to quickly recognize grammatically correct sentences. Students work from customized materials to master the skills needed to achieve great scores. In addition to the consistent language and writing drills in the class, students complete timed Writing sections throughout the course. Because each class covers new content and builds on the skills and concepts covered in the previous classes, it is important that students attend all five classes of the Writing and Language Workshop.

Evidenced-Based Reading

Time: 6 – 9 pm

In this Intensive Reading Workshop, students take control of reading passages by learning and then practicing the strategies that are necessary to select the correct answers.  The SAT is a test of advanced reading comprehension, and students must learn the strategies necessary to analyze passages from classic and contemporary literature, history, social studies, and science. The strategies taught in these sessions will help students to identify correct answer choices and to gain confidence in their reading skills. Students learn what to look for in a passage, how to become active readers, how to better understand the passages, and how to approach evidence-based questions. Students learn to examine how the author persuades the reader and to compare the opinions discussed in the passage. In addition to practicing individual passages from literature, history, social studies, and science, students will gain exposure to the full 65-minute Reading section throughout the workshop. Because each class covers new content and builds on the skills and concepts covered in the previous classes, it is important that students attend all five classes of the Reading Workshop.
