SAT Current Events

Link of the Day

Many of the SAT essay questions ask about challenges and adversity.  They might ask about how people approach problems or about how people should approach problems.  Other questions ask about how people define themselves and what is important to the individual or to society.  

Take a look at this current event about a woman who recently survived a disaster.

How could knowledge of this ordeal inform you as you respond to the following questions?

1.  Do you think that ease does not challenge us and that we need adversity to help us discover who we are?

2.  Is conscience a more powerful motivator than money, fame, or power?

3.  Are people best defined by the job that they do?
