OUR PHILOSOPHY

Research shows that daily practice promotes long-term learning and retention. In a traditional classroom, a grammar or math topic is taught and a worksheet is assigned. Sadly, most teachers are under time-constraints and do not have the luxury of reinforcing the skills taught within a topic: students take a unit exam and move on to the next topic. Thus, the reinforcement and extensive practice needed for mastery is lacking. This program – with its daily grammar, vocabulary, and reading practice – provides this needed reinforcement and creates mastery. Also, by reading daily short non-fiction (and some prose) passages, students become stronger readers, invaluable for college entrance exams and college readiness. The targeted reading questions – inference, main idea, tone, word-in-context – build cognitive thinking.

By providing daily, distributed learning, The High School Daily Quiz is an excellent resource for students, whether they are in a traditional classroom, an alternative learning environment, or are homeschooled.

The program can also be used with 8th grade students as a high school enrichment and readiness program.
