Are you planning to take the ACT or SAT essay? Do you want help scoring higher? Then, this class was created for you. We'll take an in-depth look at the new, redesigned ACT and SAT essays. We'll start by breaking down what each type of prompt is asking you to do. Next, we'll examine the writing and perspectives, focusing on strengths and weaknesses.

Through brainstorming and outlining, we'll prepare a solid structure. Then you'll write your own timed essay. Afterward, we'll read example essays for comparison and discuss each one's strengths and weaknesses, as well as ways to improve your essay. This process will be repeated with variations and interactive activities until you are ready to take the ACT or SAT and earn your best score!
