Here’s how Legacy of Learning can help your child’s educational progress

CORRECTIVE READING

Reading is not only a pleasurable leisure activity; it is an essential skill for success in almost any professional field. Dreamcatcher’s unique one-to-one, multisensory teaching method, combined with an efficient, carefully sequenced curriculum, will foster strong reading skills in learners of all ages, from 3rd grade to adult learners, from non-readers to readers who possess fair reading skills, but who are not fluent readers and tend to make word identification errors.

SPELLING

Spelling is an essential skill for success in school and in many professional fields. Dreamcatcher’s unique on-to-one teaching method, combined with an efficient, carefully sequenced curriculum will foster strong spelling and writing skills in learners of all ages.

MATH

From accounting to zoology, to carpentry, to simply balancing a check book, strong math skills are fundamental requirements for success in life. Dreamcatcher’s unique one-to-one teaching approach, combined with an efficient, carefully sequenced curriculum will foster math proficiency in learners of all ages from addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, through fractions and decimals, to geometry and beyond if needed.

WRITING

Writing is an essential skill and a fundamental method of communication. The writing program has six levels.  The beginning levels cover all basic skills: sentence development, capitalization and punctuation, editing, reporting, inferring, relevance, and expanded writing.  The intermediate and advanced levels include parts of speech and sentence analysis, clarity, inaccurate and unclear directions, misleading and inaccurate claims, arguments, passage writing, parallel construction, vocabulary, descriptions, grammar, deductions and reasoning and writing extensions.

CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS

Comprehension, organization, vocabulary, retention and information processing are important basic thinking skills and are required of almost anyone. The Critical Thinking Skills (Comprehension) program is ideal for students that may be proficient in logical reasoning but have not mastered reasoning skills to the point where applying them is automatic. These students need extra help with learning new concepts, understanding written instructions, reading comprehension, and the mechanics of writing. Critical Thinking Skills starts with oral language and teaches deductions, inductions, analogies, vocabulary and inferences.  The second level expands into basic evidence, contradictions, classifications, body systems, economic rules and more vocabulary.  Writing skills such as paragraph-writing and story-writing, and following both written and oral directions, are also added.  The more advanced level emphasizes life skills, reading for information, analyzing arguments, and higher-order reasoning.

THE SAT

WHAT IS THE SAT? The SAT is a standardized test that is divided into Math and Verbal sections. The test is administered to high school juniors and seniors several times in both the fall and spring. Test scores are reported on a scale from 400 to 1600 and the national average is 1000. Colleges and universities require the SAT (or ACT) from incoming applicants.

MASTERING THE VERBAL SECTION: This course will emphasize most commonly occurring vocabulary words, as well as extensively covering learning techniques for the analogy, sentence completion and reading comprehension sections. Students will practice strategies and will complete practice sets from actual SAT exams.

MASTERING THE MATH SECTION: This course will review the main components of the math sections of the SAT: arithmetic, algebra and geometry. Furthermore, students will learn the best ways to solve the problems quickly and efficiently while avoiding the ways the SAT “tricks” students into picking incorrect answers. Students will also practice actual math problems from SAT exams.

THE ACT

WHAT IS THE ACT? The ACT is a standardized test which assesses high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The multiple-choice tests cover four skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. The Writing Test, which is optional, measures skill in planning and writing a short essay. Test scores are reported on a scale from 1 to 36 and the national average is 21.1. Colleges and universities require the ACT (or SAT) from incoming applicants.

MASTERING THE ENGLISH SECTIONS: The Writing Test consists of 75 multiple choice questions that tests usage, mechanics and rhetorical skills. The Reading Test is 40 multiple choice questions based on passages including prose fiction, social studies, humanities, and natural sciences. The best way to approach these questions is to read all the answer choices carefully as nothing is incorrect but you have to select the best answer. Students will practice strategies and complete in practice sets from actual ACT exams.

MASTERING THE MATH/SCIENCE SECTION: The ACT Math Test covers topics from a typical high school math class. Geometry questions account for a greater percentage of the ACT Math Test than do any other type of question. It is a 60 minute section with 60 questions, which are all multiple choice, and the use of a calculator is allowed. The Science Test is 40 multiple choice questions referring to Science-based passages. Students will practice strategies and complete in practice sets from actual ACT exams.
