As students advance to middle school, they begin to determine the contextual meaning of words and phrases, learn about differences in genres such as comedies and dramas, and learn how to make inferences based upon their reading. In high school, advanced skills such as determining connotative meaning, analyzing character development and examining how authors use pacing, flashbacks and parallel plots to structure a text.

Chalk Talk: Must Have Classes to Prep for College
There is a laundry list of requirements students must meet in order to be accepted to college. Coursework is a large part of determining a student’s worthiness for admission. To have the best shot of impressing an admission board with coursework, students must take four years of math, science and language arts. In science, ensure that at least two or three of those courses are lab-based, such as biology, chemistry and physics. Colleges also look specifically for foreign language training, so even if foreign language isn’t required for high school graduation, take at least two years of it anyway. If AP or IB courses are offered, take as many as possible. These classes look great on a college application, and in many cases get you college credit along the way.
