Elite TOEFL Prep The following video contains a sample of the integrated writing task for the TOEFL iBT. This is the first task you must complete in the writing portion of the TOEFL iBT. The integrated writing task measures your ability to understand key ideas from an academic reading passage and a short lecture, and to write a response to a question about them. You must determine what information in the lecture relates in some ways to information in the reading. Then you must organize and compose an essay. In your response, you must demonstrate your ability to: → organize ideas effectively in answering the question; → draw requested connection between the lecture and the reading; → develop ideas with appropriate examples and explanation; → display unity and coherence, transitions; → use English words and sentences efectively. ================================================ The topic of this video is the "Graded School System". Here is the READING PASSAGE: → Historically, schools in the United States have borrowed the European system of school organization, a system that separates students into grades by chronological age. In general, children begin formal schooling at the age of six in what is referred to as the first grade. For the most part, students progress through twelve grades; however, some students who do not meet minimum requirements for a particular grade may be asked to repeat the year. Graded schools are divided into primary grades, intermediate grades, and secondary grades. Primary education includes grades 1 through 5 or 6, and may also provide kindergarten as a preparation for first grade. Referred to as elementary school, these grades are usually taught by one teacher in a self-contained classroom. Intermediate grades begin with grade 6 or 7 and offer three years of instruction. At this level, teams of teachers may collaborate to provide subject-based classes similar to those offered in high school. Viewed as a preparation for high school, intermediate education is known as junior high school. At grade 9 or 10, secondary school begins. Classes taught by subject specialists usually last about fifty minutes to allow a student ten minutes to move to the next class before it begins at the top of the hour. At the end of twelve successful grades of instruction, students are eligible for a secondary school diploma, more commonly called a high school diploma. ← NOTE: In the official TOEFL iBT you would be able to have access to the reading passage, therefore you my use this reading while you are writing your essay. ================================================ You have 20 minutes to plan and write your response.
