Starting in the fall of 2015, the ACT presented students with a more demanding timed essay. The "ACT Essay Explained" product gives students a three-pronged approach for meeting this new challenge. First, it provides a graphic organizer that helps students quickly write an effective essay outline, a crucial step in the ACT writing process. Secondly, it provides two sample essays, giving students models to follow. Thirdly, it provides an extra prompt, offering students a chance to write a practice essay of their own.
