As I’m sure you are all aware, The College Board is making changes to the SAT beginning 2016. One of the fundamental changes will be in the vocabulary section, focusing more on “conversational” vocabulary, rather than “SAT” vocabulary.
I am always saddened by the “dumbing” down of curriculum, expectations and society in general.
I also find it rather ironic that the NY Times article that explains all the changes is riddled with “SAT” words. Take a look and see how many you can find that we’ve gone over in class.
