The Small Print:
This product was designed for use with grade 10 students or those on a grade 9 accelerated track. The informational readings are of high complexity, and thus, this task is not recommended for use with middle school students. The document is formatted to match in look and feel the PARCC PBA pencil-and-paper test. Note, please, that the third reading recommended for use with this task cannot yet be reproduced in the download due to pending permissions. For now, we instead provide a live link to the website where the full text can be accessed and an excerpt generated.
