Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can set aside a specific amount of time for their students to practice taking the SAT test independently.
  2. After taking the practice test, students can take pictures of problems they missed. Then, with a partner, the students can review the missed problems and work together to solve them.
  3. As a class, teachers can project a practice problem by connecting their tablet to a projector. Teachers can then instruct their students to solve the problem independently. Then, when ready, teachers can call on a student to solve the problem or they can do a “think aloud” to solve the problem in front of the class.
  4. Teachers can show students a problem with a correct answer. Then, individually, teachers can have students independently compose a rationale for why the answer is correct. Once all students have composed their rationale, teachers can facilitate a class conversation pertaining to why the answer was correct.
