This bundle includes approximately 25 total pages containing questions in the style and format of the ACT. The series of worksheets presents the same reading passage--adapted seven different ways--to target the following concepts:
(1) Sentence Structure (including sentence-structure commas and semicolons)
(3) Agreement (subject-verb and pronoun-antecedent)
(4) Unnecessary Verb Tense Shifts
(5) Contractions and Possessive Forms
(7) Irrelevance,Verbosity, and Redundancy
The worksheets above present each skill in isolation. For example, in Parallelism Practice, all questions about the passage involve parallelism ONLY, but the questions remain in the ACT passage-reading format. These may also be purchased separately here:
The final three worksheets of the series MIX the concepts, mimicking the format of the ACT English section. Having practiced each concept in isolation first, the students should not find the final worksheets intimidating.
The Comprehensive Worksheets may also be used as pre or post-tests to see which of the target worksheets would be most beneficial for individual students.
(8) Comprehensive I
(9) Comprehensive II
(10) Comprehensive III*
A Targeted Skills Key is included with Comprehensive I, II, and III. It is a diagnostic tool that allows greater efficiency by allowing you to quickly conclude which Targeted Test Prep Worksheet(s) each student needs. For example, if a student misses problems 2 and 13 on Comprehensive I, you can check the Targeted Skills Key to learn that numbers 2 and 13 deal with commas. You may then choose to have the student work only the Targeted Test Prep worksheet for commas.
Included in the 65-page bundle:
Adapted Essays--10 pages
Targeted Skills Keys--3 pages (One in each Comprehensive Worksheet)
Answer Keys--25 pages
*All Targeted Test Prep Worksheets use the same satirical essay about 'Ending Grammar Class' except Comprehensive III (which is a rebuttal to original essay).
