 What are your two reading test scores so far? (Sept and March)
24 for Sept. and a 35 for March

2. What strategy did you use in class last week? (Different order? Bubbling last? Bubbling along the way?)
I decided to go in a different order and save the prose fiction for last.

3. Which subtest score was your highest last week? (Prose, Humanities, Social Science, Science)
Probably Science.

4. Research suggests that reading with your finger helps. KEEP TRYING that! Did you try reading with your pencil or finger? Do you feel like that helps or hinders? (Answer in 2 sentences)
I don't tend to use my finger/pencil to keep track because I feel that I would eventually lose focus and my finger would keep going so I would lose my spot and be confused.

5. Look at your two PROSE passage times and scores and your two SCIENCE passage times and scores. What pattern or trend do you notice in terms of times and scores? AND... Would skipping that first passage be a good strategy for you? (Answer in 3 sentences)

6. What is your goal score for the ACT Reading section? (Answer in 1 sentence)
I want to stay in the 32-35 area.

7. Thinking about the several strategies we saw in the videos and keynotes, share the ONE reading strategy that seems to work the best for you. (Answer in 2 sentences)
I think that saving the hardest passage for last helped me. I think so because it allowed me to concentrate more so on questions I didn't have to take forever on and answer more question efficiently.

Everything except Humanities

I have been using that strategy since the O’Gorman test prep class. I have found it helps me stay on track and I will continue to use it.

The strategy that works the best for me is reading the first sentence and then previewing the questions. This strategy gives me more information and insight on what I’m reading with repetition.

3. My Prose and my Science scores were both the highest with all the questions right for each of the sections.

4. Today I tried reading with my pencil, but I felt like I took longer to read when I did. I couldn't move my pencil along fast enough with my eyes when I was reading.

6. My goal score for the Reading section is a 34/35.

7. The strategy that seemed to work the best for me was reading the questions first. It helps me to read faster when I know what I am looking for in the passage.
