Pre-SAT Evidence Based Reading Class
- I. Students too early to start SAT prep (8th~9Th)

The Evidence Based Reading Section is not merely about reading the passage and finding the answers to the questions. To do well one must confidently grasp the meaning of the passage and then be able to clearly discern the difference between correct and wrong answers. Therefore students who have just begun preparing for the SAT or those who have not yet reached a score of 300 in Evidence Based Reading must learn how to clearly understand the passage and to analyze the structure of the passage.
Students will learn such critical thinking strategies in the Cum Laude class and furthermore will familiarize themselves with the characteristics and types of questions that will appear on the reading passages. They will then apply what they have learned to solve such questions. By doing so, and through open discussions in class, they will develop the skill set to find clues from the passage, which will aid them in distinguishing between correct and wrong answers.
Through clear explanations of correct answers and further explanations on what makes wrong answers wrong the class will expand one’s reasoning skills.
