The SAT I: Ways To Boost Verbal Scores.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Instructional Services.
This guide suggests that the responsibility of teachers is to provide rigorous academic instruction that will lead to improved performance on the Scholastic Assessment Test I (SAT I). Content-area literacy is especially important for the verbal section of the SAT I, and it suggested that all teachers should infuse reading and writing instruction into their disciplines. This booklet helps teachers prepare students for the SAT I. The first section focuses on practices for rigorous academic instruction including prereading strategies, strategies during reading, and after reading strategies. The second section concentrates on reading comprehension strategies in preparing students for the verbal section of SAT I. These include: (1) identifying specific details; (2) identifying main ideas; (3) summarizing information; (4) figuring out the meaning of words from context; (5) drawing conclusions/making inferences; (6) developing analogies; (7) comparing two different passages; and (8) extended reasoning. A final reminder to teachers stresses the importance of student reading and writing. (Contains six references.) (SLD)
