Here's what Natalie M. said: This is an awesome resource! I love how it is broken down standard by standard, colored coded, and the question stems will make teaching the skills so much easier. I love the hard copy of the book the thick pages won't be torn so easily and the format is outstanding. Thank you so much for the hard work and thoroughness of this product. I highly recommend it for all ELA teachers!

(TpT Seller) said: There are no words to express how this book changed me as a teacher. This is in my top five purchases from TpT. I showed it to my administrator, and she bought one for every grade level to which it was available. I highly recommend this book. If you teach English, you have to have this book. I even took it to a workshop and showed it off. Those teachers were excited to spend their EEF money on their own copy.

STEPHANIE K. said: Everyone needs this resource! I am looking forward to using this to increase the rigor in my classroom and provide my students with more authentic opportunities to show me their level of understanding.
Use these questions to supplement existing materials, to "beef up" your lessons, or for daily skills practice. There's no end to the ways you can implement these question stems in your classroom - you're only limited to your imagination! Best of all, you can be certain and confident that you're hitting the depth of questioning necessary to prepare your students for mastery!
Every question has been meticulously designed and refined to fit each particular standard, and will help you either create specific questions for your own materials, or allow you to simply "pop" the question into your own tests to ensure that you are helping your students prepare for Smarter-Balanced, PARCC (and even Texas TEKS) Assessments! Every Reading: Literature, Reading: Informational, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language standard has been addressed, helping take the guesswork out of creating lessons and assessments!
You can be assured that by using these question stems and annotated standards that you are truly addressing the Common Core standards on which your students will be assessed. No more guessing, no more time spent researching what the standards actually mean, no more coming up with your own questions to be sure you are using the verbiage and rigor your students need. We have done all the work for you!
