"Thought provoking article that generated discussion and argument in student writing." Alison S.
This product is a SECOND practice test for the AIR ELA grades 9-10. (My first practice test for the AIR ELA is also available for purchase). It includes teacher notes, links to nonfiction articles on the same topic, 14 objective questions analyzing and comparing the two articles, and an argumentative writing prompt. The questions were modeled after what has been released as sample items for the AIR practice test. The topic for this practice test is: "Is College Worth It?" The questions could easily be copied and pasted into a Google Form if you want to assess your students online.
