Topic Timeline

Class Number Topic Covered
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 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.
Class 3 On the final class, students will revisit both assignments for the Part A as well as the Part B Reading Comprehension portion of the exam. Paula has assembled a comprehensive booklet containing several exemplar excerpts of 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. The goal is to have students leave the diploma prep course feeling more confident and prepared for when they walk in to their diploma exam.
