This Common Core ELA Satire Test Prep Lesson Packet for "A Modest Proposal" by Jonathan Swift contains 20 reading comprehension QUESTIONS and ANSWERS (as well as standards-based activities and a writing prompt, outline, rubric, etc.), which focus on the Common Core standards and are modeled after various state exams. My goal is for test prep to become a natural and easy part of the curriculum, instead of something else you have to create.

One of the things I struggle with the most is preparing my students for all kinds of exams that they will encounter. With this EASY-TO-TEACH reading comprehension packet, you can practice with your students, so they will feel more confident analyzing satire for theme/central idea, words/phrases, citing evidence, structure, author's claims, and author's purpose. They are great for pull-outs, push-ins, whole groups, small groups, or sub plans.
