SAT Great Global Conversation Reading List

One of the big changes on the new SAT is the inclusion of historical documents. The SAT is expecting you to enter the “Great Global Conversation”

In other words, these essays are sort of like a huge group text. But instead of figuring out where to go for dinner, everybody is, you know…making history. There’s a really good chance some of these essays, letters, and documents will show up on the SAT Reading test.
