Mastering the Enhanced ACT.
Christman, J. Benton; And Others
A simple curriculum is provided that is designed to allow any school to prepare its students for the Enhanced American College Testing Program Tests (Enhanced ACT). Components of this manual include: (1) introduce the test structure; (2) give the strategy lectures; (3) provide as much structured practice as possible; (4) administer a mock test under simulated test conditions; and (5) give a final lecture on how to approach the day of the test. Strategy lectures are provided for: English; mathematics; reading; and science reasoning. Teachers need to communicate that the most effective way for students to prepare for the test is to complete practice test questions. Classroom kits and school kits are available for use with this manual. The "Student Manual," published separately, provides specific test-taking information and presentation of the strategies for students. The "Worksheet Packet" includes analyses of sample questions and answers in English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. (SLD)
