If you have a high school student, taking the ACT is probably somewhere on their academic schedule now or in the near future. The UT Martin Somerville campus is offering high school juniors and seniors two opportunities, a one-day workshop and a three-week review, that are geared towards helping them prepare for taking the ACT test.
The three-week review will cover English, reading and math, along with tips for taking tests. One subject will be covered each class meeting with a grammar review for English; practice passages and other tested skills for reading and exercises for building core math concepts and strategy skills to improve performance. English will be covered November 7; reading on November 14 and math on November 21. Students are expected to attend all three weeks.
The one-day workshop will cover all three subjects to help students prepare for the exam.
If your student has already taken the ACT, they can still benefit from both of these instructional events. Students are able to take the ACT exam more than once and may choose which score in each subject they want to use when applying for scholarships and college admission (see other benefits of taking the ACT). Attending the workshop or review could lead to your child testing higher.
The ACT test will be offered again on Saturday, December 12 with a registration deadline of Friday, November 6, 2015. See more test dates.
