TeachThought Podcast Ep 2: The Truth About College-Entrance Exams
by TeachThought Staff
In this episode, we talk with Anthony-James Green, who’s been profiled by the Wall Street Journal for commanding $1000 an hour for his services. We discuss test prep, how students can use what they don’t know as a starting point for learning, and what tests like the ACT and SAT really measure.
