ACT Prep Teaching Materials

The ACT prep program developed by Drs. Chippendale and Moss are built around authentic ACT tests. The first edition of their workbooks was written in 1995, and the workbooks have been updated regularly to take into account changes that have been made to the test during that time.
Teachers have found the workbooks extremely useful in prepping students for the ACT. The accompanying Lesson Plans are available for both a short and semester long class.
