Submitted by: Parent

Grade Level: High School

Competency: At Level

My kid is a rising 10th grader and a good student.  Looking for ways to boost her comprehension before she needs to start taking SAT/ACT classes.   Looks like Merit has several programs that can help her.  Which program do you recommend using first?  And which programs do you recommend after she finishes the first one? 

ANSWER:

Merit has several options to help your daughter before she gets involved with SAT/ACT classes.  These recommendations will help with her high school work too. 
 
First, ask her to work on Developing Critical Thinking Skills for Effective Reading for Upper Grades.  The program provides reading passages at advanced levels and context clues to help students master comprehend the passages.  It is commonly used in college reading labs. 
 
Next, ask her to use Grammar Rules and Review.   Grammar Rules and Review covers the 10 most common troublesome areas of grammar for high school and college students.  The program provides activities in the form of real life examples to reinforce awareness of the concepts.  Built-in hints and tips support students while they work. 
 
Lastly, have her work on Vocabulary Super Stretch.  Vocabulary Super Stretch offers interactive exercises based on words at high school and college level.  Scores are automatically tracked while students work. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
