Bring ACT ELA prep into the classroom to enhance student learning! In this new copublication from Routledge, you’ll learn how the updated ACT exam is closely aligned with the Common Core, making it easy to weave test prep into your curriculum and help students hone the skills they need for college readiness. The book is filled with practical examples of how the Common Core State Standards are connected to specific sections, question types, and strategies applicable to the ACT, so you can simultaneously prepare your students for the test while improving their reading, writing, and language skills.
“The material in this book can act as a stand-alone ACT prep resource, or it can be incorporated into the instruction of an Algebra or Geometry class. With the revision in the ACT tests, teachers who were familiar with the older version will certainly benefit from this handy resource.” –Susan Jaroscak, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Maple Heights City School, Maple Heights, Ohio
“One of the best things about this book is its emphasis on the integration of instruction and test preparation with the Common Core Standards along with support for skills that are not directly tested but still relevant. I believe this triangulation of curriculum, standards, and testing is very important. This book will be a helpful resource as I work with high school English and math teachers to do curriculum mapping and pacing.” –Susan Gorman, Director of Student Improvement, Osawatomie Unified School District 367, Osawatomie, Kansas
