Reading and Writing for College (SAT) Pre - Teens (Ongoing Class)

The “College Prep Book Lists” are long and daunting – which applies to SAT prep too. This ongoing class is based on Mortimer Adler’s “How to Read a Book” method. The environment is for both speedy readers as well as those who hate reading.

Class Experience

1.	Learn the Adler technique to identify the 3 main points (non-story-based books) in 30 minutes.
2.	Chart books read with major elements.
3.	Practice oral book reports using the Adler Method.
4.	Grasp how to read various genres and present summaries at the college level.
I bring 35 years of teaching of which half of these I was a very challenged reader, and the other half has focused on teaching reading and comprehension with students both young and old. I dropped out of college after 2 years because of my significant reading and comprehension problem. It was many years later that I read Adler’s book which was on my son’s homeschool reading list. It revolutionized both my reading and learning 20 years ago. Since then, I’ve read an average of 3 books a week and can recall 1-2 of the main points of most of those books because of this reading technique. 
There will be an average of 1 hour of homework for class. This will include weekly assignments that follow the class lesson that will integrate with the Student Book Project Presentations.

About Me

I've been teaching here on Outschool for a year (May 2020) now. It has been my pleasure to teach more than 1100 students here this last year. I find that a dialog with parents is very helpful for encouraging success for students.
