The frustration and toil of common ACT prep materials is real--take a horribly boring test, review the answers, cross your fingers you'll remember your mistake for next time. This is why Fun ACT Prep was created! Now in the 2nd edition! Enjoy what you read while preparing for the ACT! "Fun ACT Prep English and Reading: Skill by Skill" combines fun, high-interest topics relevant to teens with challenging passages and standardized questions that mimic the ACT format. Practice for the ACT while reading about Batman, LeBron James, phobias, video games, urban legends, "The Hunger Games," Taylor Swift, and many more! This unique approach to learning each skill in isolation has been applauded by teachers and appreciated by students. First, learn one of 23 critical English or Reading skills one at a time by learning all about the skill, what the questions look like, and tips for conquering that type of question. This is done in a easy-to-understand way. Then take a short formative assessment (quiz) using ONLY that skill with teen-friendly subject matter. Self-check, reflect on what was learned, and learn some overall test tips along the way. Chunk several skills together in a easy-to-read, full-length passage incorporating only 2-5 skills at a time. Finally, combine all learned skills together in a final assessment. Isolating and chunking skills together is proven method to make learning more manageable and easier to process. Useful for individual practice, classroom instruction, or small group tutoring, "Fun ACT Prep English and Reading: Skill by Skill" is adaptable for differentiated instruction and a Response to Invervention (RTI). Aligned to Common Core Standards for Reading and Language Arts.
