This product is a sure way to rapidly introduce/ re-introduce students to the English grammar and writing skills tested by both the SAT and ACT. This is not an exhaustive packet that contains every single little nuanced skill tested; however, it does contain a vast amount for a crash course review to quickly prepare students--especially those not enrolled in their own prep classes or those that have their own private tutor.
This product is a compilation of ready-made, hassle-free handouts on the following skills:
-commas, semicolons, and colons
-clauses, fragments, run-on's, and comma splices
-active and passive voice
-verb tense, form, agreement
-pronoun selection and agreement
-misplaced and dangling modifiers
-eliminating redundancy and repetition in writing
-logical paragraph development/ sequencing
The document is filled with all types of exercises to increase students' skills and awareness of standardized testing content! I privately tutor for both the SAT and ACT, and many of these handouts are what I personally use to increase my students' scores. They're very effective, especially when followed with the College Board's released sample tests.
I generally assign as a beginning of the year take home test grade (completed in parts, not all at once) for students. Not only does it help them prepare for college entrance tests, it additionally prepares them for my class through quick review of essential writing skills.
Sorry, no full key available at this time.
