This Constructed Response Practice and Assessment Pack contains three literature texts written at a 5th grade reading level according to the new CCSS requirements.

Each passage contains 6-7 constructed response questions. Some of the questions are one step and some are two step. Each question requires evidence from the passage.
The questions in this pack focus on these skills: making inferences, providing evidence and quoting the text to support inferences, determining theme, responding to challenges, comparing and contrasting story elements, determining the meaning of words and phrases, point of view, and visual elements.
Since there are three complete passages with constructed response questions, you can choose to use all three as practice, two as practice and one as an assessment, or one as practice, one as an assessment, and one as re-teaching.
Answer keys are included for each task. However, due to the nature of the questions, the answer keys are example answers only. A common core alignment is also provided on the answer key pages.
This resource also includes generic posters pertaining to answering constructed response questions and a generic rubric to help you score the questions. The students could also use the rubric to self-assess their own answers.
