Description

Nonfiction is increasingly becoming more and more represented on standardized tests, and these questions can be tricky—especially on tests such as PARCC or AP. So, I sought out to create STANDARDIZED TEST prep “close reading” questions in MULTIPLE CHOICE format in order to model standardized tests because I saw that I needed more resources such as this for my own students.

This product contains Lincoln's Gettysburg Address (found in the public domain) and 12 COMMON CORE multiple-choice questions for close reading along with a short answer written response question. I have provided the answers to the multiple-choice questions as well as a sample paragraph response to the prompt.

The questions are critical thinking and analysis-type questions similar to that on the PARCC and other standardized tests. This is a fantastic resource to prepare for the simulated research portion of PARCC as well as an excellent resource for targeting Common Core reading skills.

Questions assess skills such as:

Word meaning

Summary

Textual Evidence

Rhetorical Devices

Rhetorical Effects

Text Purpose & Audience
