ACT Reading Tip: Understanding Author Intent and Purpose

Chalk Talk #71

One of the biggest challenges many students face when it comes to the Reading portion of the ACT exam is understanding why an author wrote what he or she did, including author intent and purpose question types.

In this short video, taken from our new Study Hall feature found in TruScore Practice Testing and Analysis, we provide several authentic practice questions on author intent and purpose and teach students how to break down each question in a way that makes them easier to approach and tackle with decisiveness, which saves valuable time and points!
