Georgia Academic Support Program for GHSGT Science

Georgia Academic Support Program for GHSGT Science

The science component of the Georgia High School Graduation Test (GSHGT) is often challenging for 11th graders.  In many districts, close to 4 out of 10 first-time test-takers don't meet the passing standard in biology/chemistry/physics.

That's why we created the Georgia Academic Support Program (ASP) for High School Science.  It's a complete toolkit with more than 100 hours of reproducible lessons.  Packaged in an easy-to-use binder, with all material on an accompanying CD-ROM, the Georgia Science ASP was developed in partnership with the DeKalb County School System. 
When DeKalb County used the Georgia Science ASP in the summer of 2008, they saw their pass rate for participating students rise from 47 to 61%!  And here's what DeKalb teachers had to say:
  • "Loved the reinforcement activities and vocabulary sections"
  • "Archaebacteria and Eubacteria sections were great"
  • "Graphic organizer of the scientific method very good for all activities"
The Georgia Science ASP:
  1. Correlates to Georgia Performance Standards
  2. Covers the five domains:  Biology; Chemistry; Ecology; Motion, Forces, and Energy; and Waves, Light, Electricity, and Magnetism (for some students, this is material they may not have seen since middle school)
  3. Includes inquiry-based labs, embedded assessments, and graphic organizers
  4. Supports vertical alignment
  5. Is priced as low as $15 per student

The Georgia Science ASP is ideal for summer school, to prepare students for the GHSGT.
