ACT Word of the Day
Word Of The Day: PARAGON (noun) - a model of excellence

Test Tip: The writing test describes an issue and provides three different perspectives on the issue. You are asked to "evaluate and analyze" the perspectives; to "state and develop" your own perspective; and to "explain the relationship" between your perspective and those given. Your score will not be affected by the perspective you take on the issue.
