Bucs in ACTion

Bucs in ACTion is in response to the state mandate that requires all juniors and seniors to take the ACT this year.  These scores will become 25% of the School Performance Score (SPS) for Haughton High School.  These scores will also be used to determine if students are ready for college or a career.

All students will take some form of ACT assessment March 19, 2013. The freshmen will take the  EXPLORE, sophomores will take the PLAN, and all juniors will take the ACT.  Any senior who has not previously taken the ACT will also be required to take the test on this date.

The intent of this program is to empower our students, and help them become better prepared for these tests.  Bucs in ACTion is one of the programs we chose to help our students succeed to the best of their ability.


Schedule  Bucs in ACTion takes place daily from 9:08 to 9:20, Monday to Thursday.  All students participate in the daily skill lessons and practice opportunities.  This schedule will continue throughout the school year.  Four times a year, the students will take a timed practice test reviewing the skills learned for a specific ACT content subject.

ACT Skills Review Lessons  The ACT tests four content areas:  English, Reading, Science, and Math.  Each day our students learn and review specific skills lessons focusing on one of the content areas.  Following each lesson, the students practice using this specific lesson and explore the format ACT uses to test this specific skill.  Content area rotations are four weeks in length.

Our Travelers - Peer Tutors  When determining who should "teach" the prepared skill lessons, we decided to look to the experts.  Seniors and some juniors who have taken the ACT and achieved a composite score of 23 or higher, been successful in Advanced Placement and/or Duel Credit courses, had strong teacher recommendations, and a high GPA, were asked to be our "peer tutors."  This group of wonderful students became our Travelers.  Each Traveler has been assigned to a specific teacher and class, and reports to this class each day to "teach" the day's skill lesson and review.

ACT Practice  On the fourth Monday of each rotation, all students will take a simulated ACT diagnostics test reviewing the content area studied during this rotation.  The simulated test is the same length as the real test the students will take in the spring.  This is a timed test so the Bucs in ACTion time will be extended so the students can complete the simulated test on this day.  The rest of the week, the Travelers will review the correct choices for each of the questions.
