What Subjects are Covered in the GED Prep Program?
The GED Prep Program is available in the form of in-person or online classes. The program provides students with individualized instruction in four core subject areas:
1. Reading/Language Arts
Our reading/language arts classes revolve around the reading of various pieces of literature. Students then learn how to analyze and interpret these writings in order to compare, contrast, and discuss elements such as theme, characters and plot.
Reading/language arts is also beneficial as a means of giving students the extensive research and analytical skills they will be expected to utilize in college and/or the working world.
By the time they enter high school, many students will have completed some form of pre-algebra or even algebra 1. The curriculum for our GED classes in math typically entails algebra 1, algebra 2, and geometry. Depending on the student’s skill level and interest, the curriculum might continue with geometry and trigonometry.
Biology and chemistry are the two sciences within our GED Prep Program. Biology is the study of living organisms, with a focus on areas such as anatomy, bodily functions, and ecology – the interaction between living organisms and their environment.
Chemistry, meanwhile, is the study of matter and its composition. Students study the periodic table of the elements: the elements’ discovery, composition, and uses. The atom and the atomic structure are also covered.
