* While this course is designed primarily for 30-1 students, Social 30-2 students are welcomed and can certainly benefit. The 30-1 / dash-2 courses themselves are similar in terms of content, however the structure of the written portion of the diploma exam is different. So we provide supplementary handouts for our 30-2 students that outline these differences, and our instructors will discuss in class. Just choose the “30-2” option when registering so we can be ready for you!

|Class 1||On day one we'll begin with the Part A portion of the exam; specifically the PRT (Personal Response to Text) Assignment. Course instructor Paula has marked diplomas for many years and she will help students create a clear and executable step by step outline for success; and quickly dispel any notion that this exam "cannot be studied for". Students will then dive in with a step by step approach for how to best "survive" the Part B portion of the exam - Reading Comprehension. Paula will model the type of reading necessary for full comprehension.|
|Class 2||Continuation from day one|
|Class 3||To begin, students will revisit the PRT (Personal Response to Text) assignment to be sure questions are answered and students feel prepared for this first assignment. We will take the time to analyze examples of successful (and some not so successful) student writing. Next, students will revisit the reading comprehension portion of the exam, working their way through excerpts, practicing different strategies being critical readers. Finally for the day, we willl break down a clear step by step outline and approach to successfully tackle the second assignment for Part A - the Critical Analytical Response to Literary Text (Essay). We will examine past diploma essay questions and students will prepare the literature they would like to write their essays on.|
