Are your 7th or 8th grade students required to take the AIR, PARCC, or other state standardized tests? Are you looking for high-quality test prep activities that don't suck the life out of your classroom? If so, this product is for you!
This product contains two separate station-based activities. The first features a challenging fiction passage with five corresponding stations. Each station features four text-dependent questions for a total of 20 total questions.
The second station activity features two paired nonfiction passages. Once again, these passages include five corresponding stations with four questions per station. This means you'll have twenty additional questions to review reading skills with your students!
Many buyers report using this product across two full periods (plus additional periods if class time is used to review answers).
All questions and passages in this product are appropriately rigorous and have been developed in the model of the AIR/PARCC/modern state standardized test! These passages/questions are different from those used in my other test prep products, so this product gives you even more opportunities for authentic, challenging, test-style questions!
A blank student answer document is included, and can be used for both the fiction and nonfiction stations. Answer keys have also been included for your convenience.
Test prep can be THE WORST, but allowing students to collaborate in these station activities will allow you to review skills while keeping students engaged!

-Directions for use
-Five fiction-based stations with four questions per station (20 questions total)
