Every year, we host a special parents night event for parents of 6th, 7th, 10th, and 11th graders focused on arming them with clear, actionable information on high school and college admissions. The event is free, but an RSVP is required.
This year, the DOE is making important changes to the SHSAT once again, and City Smarts will be ready. According to a letter from the DOE, the 2018 SHSAT will now include reading comprehension passages drawn from literary fiction and poetry. This means that in addition to answering questions about non-fiction passages, students will be asked to analyze short pieces from genres like myths, historical fiction, or satire, and will need to study the form and structure of poetry.
So how should your son or daughter prepare?
