ACT Reading: The Fiction Passage
There are a lot of students out there who really don’t like the fiction passage on the ACT Reading test. And then, of course, there are also those who love it. But regardless of whether you love it or hate it, the fiction passage is still is different from the other three nonfiction passages, so it requires a bit of a different eye.
And if you adjust how you read the fiction passage with the knowledge that there are going to be slightly different question types at the end, you are going to be better prepared for those questions because you will have already anticipated them!
In this episode of TuesdACT, I talk about the three things that you should be looking out for as you read the fiction passage:
- Narration of events (particularly the “turning point”)
- Revelation of character (particularly how dialogue and “purposeful language” reveals character)
- Character relationships (both literal and emotional)
