Time to gear up and train like you’re prepping for your next marathon! Michigan has selected the SAT as our new state assessment and the race is on to prepare students for success on the revised SAT. This preparation workshop will push your limits, test your speed, and ultimately provide your team with the knowledge needed to successfully transition students to the new test.
This one-day workshop provides educators with an SAT-transition road map, helping participants to navigate the ins and outs of the new assessment. Participants will explore the similarities and differences between the ACT and SAT, make connections between the SAT and state standards, and create a training plan to bring back to the school that will help prepare students for testing success.
- Examine SAT subject-matter tests and the Depth of Knowledge required for students to succeed;
- Review current curriculum practices for alignment with SAT content;
- Develop an understanding of Academic Vocabulary and its connection to SAT success;
- Create individual school plans for sharing and implementation.
Educators will leave this workshop inspired to support the SAT transition in their school!
