Summer SAT Workshops

SAT Grammar Practice

 

Instructor: Mrs. Kim Brown

Communicating clearly requires a sound understanding of grammatical concepts and structures, and demonstrating this proficiency is an important part of the SAT. This course will provide guided practice to help students develop and improve their skill and understanding of English grammar and usage. We will begin with a review of the basic parts of speech and sentence structure and then move into targeted grammar instruction based on student responses to sample SAT grammar questions. The class will meet for two hours once a week for five weeks and may include some work outside of class.
