This workshop helps GEAR UP program staff understand how high school students should prepare to succeed on the SAT and ACT. Presenters will discuss how to motivate students by connecting the SAT and ACT to their futures, and outline test prep plans specific to underserved students at each grade level and demystify these intimidating tests! Using partnership examples with several GEAR UPs, the presenters will engage attendees in a discussion about incorporating test prep in their programs. Finally a resource that empowers YOU to help your students build confidence on their exams without being a “test prep expert!”
