Applied Practice is the only publisher of supplemental teaching workbooks created specifically to integrate standardized test preparation and 6-12th grade core subject curriculum in one easy-to-use product. We offer supplemental curriculum for three types of classrooms: advanced, regular-to-advanced, and regular.
Our Pre-AP/AP* resource guides for English, Science and Social Studies contain challenging multiple-choice and free-response questions that have the look and feel of an Advanced Placement test. The content covered in each workbook is specific to either a literary selection (English) or a unit-based topic (Science and Social Studies). Additional teaching aids are also included.
For courses with college-readiness goals, we offer English resources in three formats: SAT*, ACT*, and Core Skills PLUS. The SAT* and ACT* workbooks contain questions styled after these specific college entrance exams. Correlations to the College Readiness Standards are included in our ACT* guides. Core Skills PLUS is designed to meet the needs of teachers and students who prefer exposure to a variety of standardized question styles and include practices in Core Skills reading and writing, as well as practices in AP*, ACT* and SAT* formats. All questions in the Core Skills PLUS books are correlated to the Common Core State Standards.
For classrooms working primarily toward state proficiency goals, we offer English resources in six state formats as well as the Core Skills PLUS version for all states. These workbooks offers questions over content related to a specific literary work, that are styled after the specific question formats used in state-mandated skills tests. Currently, we offer state proficiency-style workbooks for high schools in the following formats: CAHSEE for California, FCAT for Florida, OGT for Ohio, SOL for Virginia, PSSA for Pennsylvania, and STAAR (and TAKS) for Texas. For all other states, we recommend our Core Skills PLUS series, which includes correlations to the Common Core State Standards.
For middle school classrooms with state proficiency goals, we offer additional titles in CORE SKILLS Reading, with correlations to the Common Core State Standards. Middle school workbooks are available for literary works such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; Tangerine; The Watsons Go to Birmingham, and other titles frequently found on 6-8th grade reading lists.
