如何选择SAT或ACT的最佳考场

不知道哪件事对你来说是更困难的:是回答棘手的多选题呢,还是就在等着这个伤脑筋的考试即将开始的时候你却想上厕所了。你想也许你现在就应该去一下厕所。可惜呀,你却不知道卫生间在哪……

标准化考试是令人非常紧张的事,比如SAT 1推理考试和ACT考试,学生都想尽量避免这些考试。考试时间长达几小时,虽说在漫长的折磨中会有些短暂休息。选择适合的考场会非常有助于你少分心,因而可把更多精力集中在考试上。一般来说,最好的考场就是你感觉最舒服的那个地方。以下五点可以帮你理解什么样的是好考场。

SAT

1.了解你的考场

避免选新地点,因为你要紧张地去找考场房间和卫生间位置。强烈建议要先熟悉各个位置,万一到时急于上厕所呢。方法就是如果可以的话,选择在自己学校的考场考试,或在不同时候多去几次考场去熟悉校园环境。

2.充足睡眠,好好休息

考试前一晚要休息好。充足的休息与清醒的头脑,比靠咖啡因强打精神要好多了。仅仅一晚充足睡眠,人就可以从绝望的状态变成充满希望。考试前夕要避免饮用大量咖啡。对一些人来说,饮用大量咖啡会使人不能享受放松的睡眠。早晨要少喝刺激性饮料,比如大量咖啡或效果很强的功能饮料。你已经够紧张了;没必要再加重紧张感。

3. 啊,不!你又来考了!

选一个你碰不到同学们的考场,因为这能减免你已有的焦虑——你在他们眼里是什么样的学术水平。了解到你所认识的同学们比你的考分高的时候,你就会很容易被吓到。与陌生人在一个考场考试还有一个好处就是你以后可能再也不会碰见这些人了。

4. 带些零食

有些人在紧张的时候就会饿。脑力活动,尤其是高强度的思考活动,是需要能量的。你的大脑想要糖吃,所以你可能会突然发现在考试中就饥肠辘辘。以防你需要补充能量,所以带一些零食。

5.海水不可斗量(或分数不代表一切,或不以成败论英雄)

在内心深处你要深知标准化考试分数仅体现了某些方面的智慧,并不能代表你在学术和生活中其他方面的成就。体积是在三维空间里的一种表示空间大小的度量方法。长方体的体积是通过长乘宽乘高计算得出的。三个数据都是需要的。你在标准化考试上的表现只是你能力的一方面而已。分数并不能体现出你的创造力、创作力、适应能力、建造和修理东西的能力,以及团队领导力和拥抱他人的能力。


强化英文阅读理解写作班 Challenging Reading & Writing class for High & Middle School students

For High School Students:
This class reviews challenging passages from a variety of sources, including official ACT and new SAT passages as well as current publications. We focus solely on challenging/advanced reading, as research indicates that regular practice with such materials is directly correlated with higher test scores.To practice writing, students will compose essays in response to the types of prompts that appear on standardized tests in addition the types of prompts assigned at the college-level.

For Middle School Students:
The aim of the reading class is to improve students’ reading comprehension and writing skills.
Through the challenging reading passages and accompanying questions, students will develop their analytical abilities and vocabularies every week. Students in the class will also learn about collaboration and public speaking as a result of the group projects, discussions, and presentations.
Outside of class, the homework assignments are designed to hone the students’ writing talents. Overall, the class will help students in thinking critically, a skill they can apply to their schoolwork and standardized testing.

INTENSIVE WINTER READING CLASS

To strengthen skills in reading comprehension on two fronts:

1) the ability to quickly glean facts through speed-reading;

2) the ability to think critically and in depth about written text.

The difficulty level of the materials presented is intended for high-achieving students in 8th-10th grade. Younger students with demonstrable ability are also welcome.

We will read essays and short stories from a variety of sources, including but not limited to The New Yorker, TIME Magazine, and The Atlantic.

The classes will have 3 main sections.

  1. Students will read short stories to work on reading comprehension, participate in a group discussion in which each student will present responses, and then the class will engage in a deeper discussion of the meaning and the ideas presented in the text.
  2. This section of the class is designed to improve critical skills necessary for the ACT reading section. We will also review test-taking strategies. 
  3. Finally, we will read poetry to hone analytical skills and then discuss the material as a class
