About the Course

Course Purpose

The goal of this course is to introduce students to the conventions of writing and grammar as they pertain to the writing portion of the SAT. Specifically, the course aims to familiarize students with the necessary grammar rules and question types that are typically asked on the test. Rather than falling back on answer options that "sound right" or "seem right," students will learn to select answers based on the conventional rules of language and grammar. As the course progresses, test-taking strategies and effective approaches to both grammatical and rhetorical questions will be introduced to minimize errors. A perfect score on SAT Writing will become much more attainable by the end of the course.
