High School Prep Study Skills
Students entering 9th grade can bridge the summer learning gap and prepare for high school over the summer break with Summer Solutions High School Prep Study Skills. All educational standards require children leaving 8th grade to comprehend and determine central ideas of nonfiction passages, write objective summaries of nonfiction text, and use context clues to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words. Using the summer workbook, students complete 30 lessons of mixed review over a 10-week period. This ongoing practice shores up literacy and study skills covered in eighth grade. Additional skills in the workbook include developing organizational skills, decision-making, goal setting and time management, interpreting visual information in charts, graphs, and time lines, using graphic organizers, test taking strategies, citing sources, note taking, outlining, and writing a report. By completing just one lesson three days a week, students enter high school ready to begin learning new material right away. These summer workbooks include Help Pages and a complete answer key.
