GED Literature, Science and Social Studies

OVERVIEW

The main objective of this course is to provide the employee with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to pass each of the following GED tests: Literature & the Arts, Science, and Social Studies.  Because of their relatively similar nature, preparing for these three GED tests is combined into one course.  Following a placement test, the employee will begin course work at the appropriate level. As dictated by the content of the actual GED test(s), the lessons and exercises in this course include:

Literature & the Arts: Popular literature, classical literature, and literature commentary

Science: Life sciences and physical sciences

Social Studies: History, economics, political science, geography, behavioral sciences

EVALUATION

The GED Literature & the Arts, Science, and Social Studies course is a systematic course with lessons and exercises presented in a sequential and logical order.  Participant’s skills at the end of  each chapter will be measured with a post-test.  The post-test of each chapter must be passed in order to continue with the course. Instructor observation will be used to determine the rate of progression and the amount of practice and extra course work needed by the participant.

COMPLETION

Upon completion of the lessons, exercises, and post-tests of all the chapters, the participant will take a GED practice test for each subject.  The participant must pass the practice test to complete the course.  The participant will then be prepared for the actual GED Literature & the Arts, Science, and Social Studies portions of the GED Test battery.  If the participant takes and passes the actual GED Literature & the Arts, Science, and Social Studies tests, he/she will be considered in completion of the requirements for that particular portion of this course.
