Free SAT Prep Materials

Khan Academy iPad App

The Khan Academy just released their newest iPad app this week. The new app is a great improvement over the previous app.

As you may already be aware, the SAT will be changing in 2016. The College Board annouced last year that they were making major changes to the test and to test prep. The College Board formed a partnership with the Khan Academy to offer FREE SAT test prep on the Khan Academy platform.

This new app offers all the new SAT prep content. It is a great resource. Check it out in the Apple App Store by clicking here.

Research Paper Season

It is almost research paper season in the high school. For the past several years, I've gone into the classrooms and taught students how to do basic internet research. This year, I put all those resources together in a Google Site. I shared that Google Site with the teachers, but I thought I would pass the information along to you as well.

It's more likely that you will be the one who has to deal with the frustrated student who can't find enough sources. That's the most common complaint I hear. The video below explains what you'll find on the site. You can visit the site by clicking here.

Look At the Ipad

Please take time this week to sit down with your son or daughter and look at the camera roll on the iPad.
