Jumpstart ACT began with star teacher hall-of-fame educator, Dot McClendon, and her passion to help students prepare for and perform better on the ACT® and Algebra 1 MAP exam. Jumpstart’s unique preparation approach helps students of all ability levels stay fully engaged and gain the most improvement in the shortest time by explaining difficult content in a way that every student can follow and understand.
With Jumpstart, no training of your faculty is required. Instead, we have carefully prepared and deliver each lesson plan for you! Jumpstart's steaming video modules are delivered on-demand, and are designed for classroom integration or individual study.
Jumpstart's course allows the flexibility to be adapted into any curriculum constraint. We currently offer math section prep, but soon will offer complete preparation for english, science, and reading. Learning modules review the must-know content, include testing strategies specific to the ACT® and the Algebra I MAP exam and conclude with realistic question practice modeled from actual "retired” exams and practice tests.
