6 Common Core Multiple Choice & Argument Practices. These are in Microsoft Word documents in a zipped folder. Each practice is short as I find that is most helpful when trying to go over strategies for multiple choice tests with students. They contain a text (either nonfiction, flash fiction, or poetry) with 4-5 high level (appropriate for late middle school or any age in high school...I've used these with 9, 10, and 11th grades successfully) multiple choice questions and an argument writing prompt relating to the stimulus text. 1 of the 6 practices is a writing only prompt. I did this because that was the first practice I used with my students to really focus on the writing. After that, I used the 5 practices that had both multiple choice and writing.

I find these stimulus texts to be highly interesting to students--using texts such as "The Haircut" (an interesting flash fiction piece), "Sure You Can Ask Me a Personal Question," a great poem, and nonfiction articles focusing on topics such as banning books, the movie Frozen, the game Angry Birds, amongst other texts.

Each practice includes keys and rubrics for scoring and in most cases annotated reasons for how students could have come to the correct answer.

These practices took many many weeks to create well, and are very good in going over how to determine correct answers for multiple choice questions in preparation for state standardized testing. Enjoy! :)
