Wolters Accelerated High School

“Committed to Success”

* Each prospective student makes application to the school as well as attends a parent/student orientation meeting before being accepted to the campus

*The majority of our students are juniors and seniors. Our focus is to ensure students are able to graduate in 4 years, so that we can meet our accountability standard for completion rate under AYP/NCLB

* Wolters provides students with a self-paced accelerated learning environment. Each course is composed of units or “packets” that cover the TEKS for the course. Our goal is to provide research-based meaningful “brain-based” instructional strategies to maximize learning and retention of knowledge.

Wolters Accelerated High School

“Committed to Success”

* Our goal for each child is that they leave our campus with a high school diploma. Last year, our campus graduated 199 students. This represented 24% of the graduating class at Deer Park High School

* Graduation = “Credits required for graduation” + “All 4 Sections of the Exit Level TAKS Test”

Slide16 l.jpg

Example:

 The principle of federalism in the U.S. Constitution is reflected in:

F the right of states to negotiate foreign trade agreements

G the right of the national government to remove a state from the Union

H the separation of power among the three branches of the national government

J the division of power between the national and state governments

Any ideas on what to highlight?

Translate

the questions into your own language.

Often, test answers sound alike. By reading the answers slowly and translating them into your own language, you get a better idea of what’s going on.


Slide24 l.jpg

  • Example:

  • Which of the following statements best describes the opinion of the majority of Americans regarding the onset of World War II in Europe?

  • (translation – how did Americans feel at the beginning of WW II?)

  •  A. They were not concerned with international politics and they were indifferent

  • to who would be the victor. (translation – they didn’t care)

  • B. They did not agree with the use of U.S. military force or intervention at the time. (translation – they wanted to stay out)

  • They were enraged by the policies of Hitler and were anxious to declare war

  • on the Nazi forces.(translation – they were ready to fight!)

  • D. They wanted to remain out of the war so that the participants in the war would each be weakened and the U.S. could rise as a world power.(translation – sounds pretty slimy)

A. They were not concerned with international politics and they were indifferent to who would be the victor. (translation – they didn’t care)

Eliminate

nonsense answers.

You can usually remove two answers because they don’t make sense, don’t sound familiar, or don’t have anything to do with the question.


Slide32 l.jpg

Example: translate them:

 “ . . . that on the 1st day of January, in the year of our Lord 1863, all persons held as slaves within any state . . . in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free . . . “

(on January 1, 1863, slaves are free)

This quotation comes from the historical document called the –

(what does this come from?)

F Gettysburg Address.

G Declaration of Independence.

H Bill of Rights

J Emancipation Proclamation.


Slide33 l.jpg

Example: translate them:

 “ . . . that on the 1st day of January, in the year of our Lord 1863, all persons held as slaves within any state . . . in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free . . . “

This quotation comes from the historical document called the –

F Gettysburg Address.

G Declaration of Independence.

H Bill of Rights

J Emancipation Proclamation.

Both the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights were written in the 1700’s, right?

Neither one of them was about slavery, right?

Eliminate them!


Slide34 l.jpg

Example: translate them:

 “ . . . that on the 1st day of January, in the year of our Lord 1863, all persons held as slaves within any state . . . in rebellion against the United states, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free . . . “

This quotation comes from the historical document called the –

F Gettysburg Address.

G Declaration of Independence.

H Bill of Rights

J Emancipation Proclamation.

Gettysburg was a battle site during the Civil War. If you don’t know that, then maybe you do know that . . .

emancipation means freedom.

Which one would deal with freedom for slaves, then?


Slide35 l.jpg

Example: translate them:

 “ . . . that on the 1st day of January, in the year of our Lord 1863, all persons held as slaves within any state . . . in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free . . . “

This quotation comes from the historical document called the –

F Gettysburg Address.

G Declaration of Independence.

H Bill of Rights

J Emancipation Proclamation.

The Emancipation Proclamation, of course!

Estimate

using your common sense.

Your brain is usually way ahead of you and the correct answer will seem to “pop” into your head. This is because you actually learned something along the way! Unless you absolutely know your answer is wrong, go with your first instinct. If it’s the most obvious answer, the most well known person, the most important idea . . . it probably IS the answer. Remember, the test makers want you to know some important stuff.

In a survey of 80 nutritionists, 8 said they eat tacos. Of the 8 who said they eat tacos, 2 said they eat Brand A tacos. If an advertisement for Brand A tacos states “25% of the nutritionists surveyed eat Brand A tacos,” which conclusion is valid based on the information given?

F The ad is accurate because 2 out of 8 nutritionists is 25%.

G The ad is accurate because nutritionists are food experts.

H The ad is inaccurate because only 2.5% of the surveyed nutritionists eat Brand A tacos.

J The ad is inaccurate because the survey should include people who are not nutritionists.
