Extending High School Equivalency Reading Skills; Part 2: Science, Social Studies, Mathematics.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Continuing Education Curriculum Development.
This publication is intended to do two things: reinforce reading skills essential to interpreting the exercises in the social studies, sciences, and mathematics sections of the test of General Educational Development (GED) and to provide students practice in interpreting passages written at a level of difficulty similar to the difficulty of the equivalency test. It is designed to be used as a supplement of "Developing High School Equivalency Reading Skills," which is a curriculum guide for teaching the reading skills needed to interpret the literature, social studies, science, and mathematics sections of the test. The reading passages in the first guide were selected to provide examples for purposes of instruction and are not as difficult as the GED test items, thus these passages for a more difficult reading level were developed.
