The Enhanced ACT Essay
The coming ACT test date is Sep 12. The registration deadline is Aug 21.
The ACT board is completely changing the essay section beginning in September, 2015. This is a significant change! Students will need to use different strategies and ways of thinking to get a high score.
To help our students prepare, SpringLight will hold a workshop on Aug 22 at 2 pm.
For the first hour, an experienced ACT tutor will discuss the new strategies necessary for the Enhanced ACT Essay. She will present useful organization and paragraph templates, multiple great (and not-so-great) writing examples, and a variety of practice tests students can practice at home.
Then, students will have an opportunity to complete a practice essay and receive individual feedback from the tutor.
Time: Aug 22th, Saturday
- 2:00 to 3:00pm, workshop

- After 3:30pm, individual feedback
1 hour workshop: $30
