When students reach the final stretch before the
GED and need lots and lots of test-taking practice
to master the question format of the test, these
slim paperback volumes are handy and economical.
Both New Readers Press and Steck-Vaughn sell a version
of them. The Steck-Vaughn Skill Books break each
test area into many subdivisions. The books are
laid out very much like the GED itself; therefore,
their use may well enable a student to feel competent
and prepared when they get to the real thing.”
GED vocabulary Crosswords-Vocabulary Exercises-Book 8 from Contemporary Books
Basic vocabulary—fun crosswords available in packages of 10—literature terms, social studies, science, and math vocabulary. ISBN 0-8092-3569-2
Number Power 7, Problem Solving and Test-taking from Contemporary Books.
Excellent practice and techniques for students to use just prior to taking the GED Math Test.
America's Story Book One and Two from Steck-Vaughn
For those with little or no U.S. history background, this is easy and interesting reading and gives a great background.
This is the only web site I regularly use. I also find that News for You (from New Readers Press) and any local newspapers make for great material.
This is a great website for all kinds of lesson helps, links and resources for adults for the GED. While you are on this site, look at the At-risk Student, CO Adult Education & and Family Literacy and Teach Beat. Teach Beat leads to Using Context to Teach.
This is a good web list for GED/ABE I liked the Vocabulary University.
Separated into three levels of difficulty, these free interactive vocabulary puzzle and activity sessions use Latin and Greek "roots and cells" to help unlock word meanings.
