Monday, Jan. 23, English teacher and language arts department head, Mrs. Maeve Bolin, traveled to CCR classes to register students for the March ACT preparation course. Students who have both taken an ACT beforehand and register for either the April or June ACT will be eligible for the course.

Senior Corey Richmond had not taken the ACT prep course, but recalled the information he knew about it.

“I felt like I didn’t need to take it,” Richmond said. “I already achieved my goals and requirements, but if I were to take it [the ACT prep course] I would like to review math, especially. Based on my business math grade last semester you’d understand why…”

Senior Erin Goodsmith took the ACT prep course junior year because she “didn’t know what the ACT was.”

Goodsmith said, “I learned how to be quick, check over my work, and pace myself. Although that was good, I would have liked more one-on-one with the teacher. There were a lot of worksheets, too”.

Senior Blaise Bell attended the ACT prep course which began early second semester of his junior year.

“We spent most of our time on English,” said Bell. “I learned to read sections of the ACT english portion in a certain order the teachers recommended.”

Though Bell learned test-taking techniques, he also provided constructive criticism of the course.

Bell said, “Most things we learned were trivial, but the biggest flaw was that the class was mandatory. If you missed even one class you were called via intercom to go to the class. [The course] was supposed to be only 3-4 days per week but it ended up being every day.”

The sign-up deadline for ACT prep is Feb. 13. For more information contact Mrs. Bolin at Maeve.Bolin@usd469.net or visit her classroom before or after school.
