TEST PREP LESSON PLANS, PACING GUIDES, BELL RINGERS
- Prior to the start of an in-school course, A-List can assist your faculty with the development of comprehensive class schedules for classes, outlining weekly assignments and setting practice tests dates.
- A-List can also provide teachers with a suite of customized teacher materials including lesson plans and downloadable (PDF) slides for each question in The Book of Knowledge to facilitate classroom learning.
- Our curriculum planning not only helps instructors determine how to best organize and present the material, but also provides a guideline for study pacing for individual or specialized groups of students to ensure that enough time is allotted for the each topic.
- No matter the format of your ACT/SAT program, we can tailor it to your needs– breaking down the course content as extensively as necessary. We can structure lesson plans based on a year-long, semester, or crash/boot camp course (with students working toward a particular test date); we can detail how the classes per week and class time should break down by test section and topic(s).
- All course schedules and lesson plans correspond with the contents of A-List’s ACT and SAT Book of Knowledge Teacher Manuals
- Use A-List “bell ringers” to start your classes; they serve dual purposes: they address content and/or skills for students to succeed in your classroom, and they provide opportunities for teachers to explore different ways of thinking (sometimes, the “ACT-way” or “SAT-way” is not necessarily the textbook way)

…There is a need for the type of program you have developed to be made available to every child regardless of income. This is why I have brought A-List into school districts I have been fortunate enough to lead: to train our teachers and provide the support necessary to improve our students’ scores.
A-List was engaging and substantive for our students. Each week our Dreamers were completely immersed in the class’s content…The sessions were poignant, enjoyable, and challenging and exactly what I had hoped for my Dreamers.
This was by far the most useful professional development session I’ve attended in my career.
