I have used this in my own classroom and at school-wide ACT Review Sessions for the last 8 years!
This is a 3 page .pdf document that covers all of the Grammar, Usage, and Rhetorical rules tested on the ACT English test. This also includes some basic test taking strategies for the English section of the ACT test.
I have included an older version and a new version. The information is the same, but the styles are different.
When helping students prepare to take the test, I have my students take a practice passage. Then as we go through the answers, I review the rules based on which rule the questions in the passage uses.
One of the most helpful activities students have done is to place a tally mark in each of the boxes on the handout, if they missed that type of rule on the ACT Practice tests. It becomes a very visual way of seeing which grammar or rhetorical rules they need to review in more depth before taking the test.
