|Class 1||On day one we'll begin by discussing how to be successful on the written response portion of the English Diploma Exam. Course instructors have marked diplomas for over 20 years and will help students create a clear and executable outline for success. (And quickly dispel any notion that this exam "cannot be studied for")
Students dive in with a short story, and apply "close reading of a text" in order to model the type of reading necessary for full comprehension. The evening will close with a most crucial element of successful writing - the formation of the thesis statement.
|Class 2||On the final class students will extensively review for Part B of the diploma. Instructors have assembled a comprehensive booklet containing hundreds of exemplar reading comprehension / multiple choice diploma-style questions.
Students will be shown trends in the types of questions to expect and gain valuable practice in examining texts and applying applicable concepts and definitions
