Students ready for ACT

April 18, 2014

The American College Test (ACT) is used by most colleges and universities to determine if they will admit a young student. So preparing to do their best on the test is something many high school students are interested in accomplishing.
Sixteen young students from Milwaukee area high schools spent part of their spring break taking an ACT Wings workshop at the Social Development Commission (SDC), getting ready for the test. They participated in the free two half-day sessions designed to prepare them for the ACT exam.
The young men and women represented King, Reagan and Madison High Schools. Instructor Terrence Moore explained to them how the ACT is structured and what they can expect to find when they take it. He shared studying strategies and offered practice tests so they could experience what it is like. All five test areas were covered during the sessions and study materials provided. The ACT preparation classes also included drawing up personal study plans and providing follow-up sessions.
Workshops in addition to the ones being offered during spring break are scheduled for May. To learn more about the ACT Wings workshops or to enroll, visit www.cr-sdc.org/DefaultFilePile/Programs/Youth-Services/YFDPACTflyer2014.pdf. Or call SDC at 414-906-
