ACT Minimum Core

English: 4 years Social Sciences: At least 3 years

Mathematics: At least 3 years Natural Sciences: At least 3 years

Why Start with Content Expectations?

ACT Recommended Coursework

  • In the past, ACT has reported student performance by “Core” and “Less than Core” course patterns. Similar results are included in this report.

  • ACT research shows that it is the rigor of high school courses—rather than simply the number of courses—that best prepares students for college. ACT data show that students who take and work hard in higher-level courses such as Physics and an advanced math class beyond Algebra II are most likely to be college ready.



Next Steps?….

Begin with Instruction

  • Gather data for incoming students to develop profile

  • Conduct a transcript study of ‘05, ‘06 grads

  • Match MMC to district graduation requirements

  • Form study groups to look at curriculum alignment (vertical and horizontal) to identify gaps

  • Align current courses to Credit/Content standards


Then….

  • Determine pace and sequence

  • Identify the “power expectations”

  • Address acceleration and student support

  • Determine schedule structure

  • Design the process for student scheduling
