"This was our final session before the students take the SAT this coming Saturday. They had each prepared a preliminary list of books, plays and historical examples to discuss, so that they would have a host of fresh examples to use on the essay portion of the test. The books they came up with included To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride and Prejudice, 1984, In Cold Blood and Of Mice and Men. The plays included Antigone, Medea, Hamlet and A Midsummer Night's Dream, and the historical figures/events included Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rachel Carson, Susan B. Anthony, Galileo, The Vietnam War, the Civil Rights Movement, The Great Depression and Roe v Wade. We discussed what broader themes might apply to each of these individual examples, as well as how a few of these examples might be woven together. We also discussed stress management, highlighting the important things to do before test day like eat good "brain food" and get lots of sleep."
