Most students, no matter how bright, approach the ACT Reading Section with fear and trepidation. The reading section of the ACT is a heavily vocabulary-driven test, so I work with students to improve their vocabulary. I also provide students with strategies they can use to identify the best answer to every question. I show them how to approach the questions so that the correct answers are virtually as quantifiable as the correct answers to math questions are. The correct answer to the passage-based reading questions are not subject to individual interpretation. With the right approach, students can easily find the best answer. They must get inside the heads of the creators of the ACT, and I give them the keys to deciphering the best answer and determining why it can be proven to be the “best” answer.
