ACT Home School Classes

Registering now for ACT classes for the last nine weeks of school. Please feel free to forward this in your groups to anyone who might be interested.

This class is for high school students interested in raising their ACT scores. For the 9th and 10th grade students there will be a lot of math that will be new to them but it will be a good introduction to the new math skills.

9 classes. 4 hours per class. 8:00-12:15

Dates:
March 24
March 31

These classes will be extremely concentrated with instruction and practicing of the exact skills needed to be successful on the ACT. The curriculum will include math, science, reading, English and good test taking strategies. 12 new skills will be presented each week. A pretest and a post test will be completed by the students at the beginning and end of the session.

Since this is a 4 hour class, there will be a 15 minute break for the students to stretch. Each student will need to bring a good snack and drink because thinking that hard requires a lot of energy!

Optional: Each student will need to bring a TI83 calculator. This calculator is permissible for use on the ACT exam.

The class will be taught by Mrs. Tamara Peppers. I had the privilege of teaching with Tamara for several years at Hazel Green Elementary. She is a dedicated and concerned teacher. She takes great pride in seeing her students succeed.
