Topic Timeline

Class Number Topic Covered
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 she 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 Class will begin with analysis of examples of successful (and some not so successful) student writing. Next, students will continue the process of writing thesis statements in conjunction with texts they've already seen in class. (Specific content will be analyzed here - students will have the chance to gain fresh perspective on works they studied throughout the year)
The day will finish with an examination of past diploma critical essay questions
Class 3 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
