PRE-HISET (ABE LEVEL 2)

The Pre-HiSET class mainly focuses on reading instruction and critical thinking.  Students are promoted to the highest level based on improved reading scores, so this is the main area of focus.  We do this primarily by reading aloud, reading silently, learning vocabulary, and learning comprehension strategies.  Although reading is the main focus, we also work on other topics.  Students are introduced to the basics of grammar, paragraph construction, map and graph reading, civics, American history, physical sciences, earth sciences, and biology.
